You know, I have to confess...I have always thought of Angelina Jolie as someone a little dark...mysterious....and maybe just ever so slightly evil. The way she carries herself just proves that she's a strong, beautiful woman who takes no prisoners...So I truly wasn't at all surprised when I learned that this Hollywood Mega-Star was cast to play one of Disney's most foreboding villains, none other than Maleficent. Just look at the poster above and tell me she doesn't fit this wicked role perfectly!
From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconicvillain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.
The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
“Maleficent” is produced by Joe Roth and directed by Robert Stromberg, with Angelina Jolie, Don Hahn, Matt Smith, Palak Patel and Sarah Bradshaw serving as executive producers. Linda Woolverton wrote the screenplay. “Maleficent” opens in theaters on May 30, 2014.
Check out these great new images from the film. Don't they look completely enchanting? Okay, maybe a little foreboding, too! I wouldn't want this notorious villainess finding me wandering in a dark forest somewhere!
And of course you're not going to want to miss the trailer to this much anticipated release. I just know this is going to be one of the biggest hits of 2014!
