While we have seen plenty of Disney characters coming to life on the big screen over the years, it is always nice to see a new and refreshing take on certain characters and the events surrounding them. That is why we are looking forward to seeing what hs been done with the movie Maleficent, which stars Angelina Jolie and has now released its final trailer before hitting the big screen this month.
The movie Maleficent centres on the classic Disney tale Sleeping Beauty but this time, rather than focussing on the story of the Princess, takes a different look at the story. Maleficent gives us the story from the view point of the villain of the tale, Maleficent. The film focusses on the events from her life, that have led her to become evil and cast the curse on the young Aurora.
As well as starring Angelina Jolie in the titular role and Elle Fanning as the Princess, the strong Maleficent supporting cast also includes Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville. Maleficent is directed by Robert Stromberg, based on the screenplay which was developed by Paul Dini, Linda Woolverton and John Lee Hancock, from the classic Sleeping Beauty tale.
Maleficent is set to open on May 30, 2014 in both the US and the UK but, as we wait for the release of the movie, why not take a moment or two to check out Angelina Jolie as the evil villain in the new Maleficent trailer below.
