Disney’s Maleficent Gets New Posters

Posted by Rudie Obias On May - 5 - 2014 0 Comment

With the success of Alice in Wonderland in 2010, Disney is looking to their past animated film for inspiration for new material. The idea of remaking Disney animated films into live-action renditions is absolutely brilliant. Disney can now make money two ways, from movie ticket sales from the live-action film and the home video sales of the animated classic. In this case, “Maleficent” is the dark and gritty, live-action version of “Sleeping Beauty.” Disney released new posters that feature Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora (via MovieFone).

“Maleficent explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent (Jolie) cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora (Fanning) is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.”

The new Disney film stars Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Brenton Thwaites, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Miranda Richardson, Imelda Staunton, and Lesley Manville as Flittle. Screenwriters Paul Dini and Linda Woolverton wrote the film, while Robert Stromberg directed it.

Disney’s “Maleficent” will hit theaters everywhere on May 30, 2014.
