Bringing the back story to the Disney’s villain Maleficent from the story Sleeping Beauty brings a different perspective to the bad fairy. Played by Angela Jolie, the bad fairy was once a beauty who through a series of events found herself opposed to the King. She suffered a great loss which made her act from hurt to curse the baby Aurora.

For visitors of Disney’s California Adventure at the Disney Resort, the preview for Maleficent is still playing at the Bug’s Life Theater. Parents who have heard that Jolie’s make-up scared children can preview with their kids before paying at the theater.

While watching the preview with an audience of all ages, there were gasps with the entrance of the black fairy but no cries from any of the young attendees. The preview was a determining factor for several parents who were overheard saying as they exited that they were glad their children liked the preview. These were likely among the audience members in the three week totals.

Bug’s Life Theater is located to the left of the Bug’s Life entrance. Tucked inside a garden, the underground theater is surprising large. The theater is a 4D experience with 3D glasses and added effects to make the show more enjoyable.
