First Look! Angelina Jolie's New Scary Movie, 'Maleficent'
Check out the trailer above.
She hasn't appeared on the big screen in three years, and now Angelina returns as the evil Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty in the upcoming Disney flick Maleficent, which is scheduled for release on May 30, 2014. At this year's Disney Expo, Angelina revealed that Maleficent was one of her favorite characters as a child and that' it's a dream to have the chance to play her. "I was terrified of her, but I was so drawn to her," Angelina explained. "She had this elegance and this grace, and yet she was so cruel."
The film, like Alice In Wonderland before it, takes the classic fairy tale and reimagines it by twisting the story and telling it from the point of view of Maleficent. Elle Fanning plays Princess Aurora, aka Sleeping Beauty. Angelina even has her real-life daughter Vivienne play the younger version of Princess Aurora. Two of her other children, Pax and Zahara, make appearances in the film as well.
Maleficent is considered the untold prequel to Disney's 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty. We get to understand the back story of why this wicked fairy hates the young princess and casts evil spells. So will this tale end in happily-ever-after? Stay tuned to find out.
