One of my favorite evil Disney characters is coming to life on the big screen!!!
Maleficent is the evil Fairy who puts a spell on Princess Aurora to die on her 16th birthday. Luckily her spell is altered by Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather, and Princess Aurora is just put into a deep sleep instead.
Disney has cast Angelina Jolie to play the dark fairy.
Personally I think she will be pretty good at the role.
I can't wait to see how this plays out!! I loved Glen Close as Cruella De Vil. Disney has a knack for picking the best villains!!!
The Walt Disney Studios has announced a U.S. release date of March 14, 2014, for Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie in the title role as Disney’s ultimate villain. The live-action film explores the origins of the evil fairy Maleficent and what led her to curse Princess Aurora in Disney’s animated classic Sleeping Beauty. Leading a team of visionary filmmakers known for creating and transporting audiences to new and exciting worlds, Academy Award®-winning production designer Robert Stromberg (Avatar, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland and Oz The Great and Powerful) will direct with a script by Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Alice in Wonderland). Maleficent is produced by Joe Roth (Disney’s Alice in Wonderland and Oz The Great and Powerful).
