Angelina Jolie’s hit sequel sheds more light on the world of Maleficent, the villain of Disney’s animated classic Sleeping Beauty. Both this film and its precursor present a slightly more sympathetic version of the character, serving as guardian and protector of the Moors alongside Queen Aurora (Elle Fanning). Mistress of Evil also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor (Doctor Strange), Ed Skrein (Deadpool), Imelda Staunton (Flesh and Blood) and Michelle Pfeiffer (Ant-Man and the Wasp).

Artemis Fowl

Disney's Artemis Fowl on Disney Plus

Artemis Fowl is a real landmark release for Disney Plus. The mega-budget blockbuster, inspired by Eoin Colfer’s beloved children’s novels, had been intended for a cinema release around the world in May. For obvious reasons, that didn’t end up happening. But rather than delay release as they have with several other tentpole pictures, Disney have decided to release the film early on their streaming service as a treat for cooped up subscribers. Newcomer Ferdia Shaw stars in the title role as a 12-year-old criminal mastermind, who comes into conflict with a secret world of fairies.

The Mandalorian Disney Gallery

Disney’s behind-the-scenes look at the making of The Mandalorian comes to a close on 19th June. It’s been a fascinating look at the pioneering techniques used to produce the Star Wars spin-off, showing how breathtaking locations and sequences were created using clever visual effects. Of course, The Mandalorian itself is also available to stream in its entirety, and you should definitely watch the main series first to avoid spoilers.
