As I have shared before I have always been fascinated with the back story of characters and the making of movies. One of my favorite things to do when I get a new movie is watch the bonus features. Usually they include deleted scenes as well as some of what happens behind the scenes during the production. The #Maleficient Blu-Ray/DVD Combo is no exception. During my Disney Press Trip we actually got to get up close and personal with the actual costumes that Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning wore in the movie. Talk about magical. Anywho, with the release of Maleficent on Blu-Ray/DVD this Tuesday Novemeber 4th I want to share with you some of the bonus content that you will find ONLY on the Blu-Ray edition.
Maleficent Blu-Ray/DVD Bonus Content
The bonus content included on the Blu-Ray are:
- Deleted Scenes
- Aurora:Becoming A Beauty
- From Fairy Tale to Feature Film
- Building An Epic Battle
- Classic Couture
- Maleficent Revealed
Most of us know or have seen Sleeping Beauty and are quite familiar with the story. Most of Maleficent takes place before that story as well as shows you things that were happening during that story but were never told. One of my favorite bonus features is From Fairy Tale to Feature Film. Here is just a snippet of that feature;
What I loved learning from it was how involved Angelina Jolie was is the story of Maleficent. She didn’t just take the role and play it. She became a part of Maleficent’s story. She helped create who we see and how we related to her. I really can’t think of anyone else who would have or could have played Maleficent better than Angeline. My second favorite bonus feature was Aurora: Becoming A Beauty. Here is a small snippet of that bonus feature:
I have been a fan of Elle since I saw her is Super 8 and it was quite funny to me to hear that director say the same thing. (BTW, If you haven’t seen Super 8 I highly recommend you watch it.) Watching Elle describe becoming Aurora you really see how perfect she is to play her. She has such an innocence to her yet so joyful that you truly feel that she is Aurora.
As I have said before Angelina Jolie was the only person who could have play Maleficent. She embodies the beauty, mystery, pain and love that is Maleficent. The bonus features really are fantastic and are must watch when you get your copy. There is so much included in them even snippets of Angie with Brad and the kids. I don’t want to spoil it for you but it is really so sweet.
The Maleficent Blu-Ray/DVD Combo hits store TOMORROW November 4th so don’t forget to pick up your own copy. It is truly one of my favorite Disney films and I know it will be come yours too.
