The movie has been in talk & production for quite some time now.
The picture is the first official one released for the movie, posted on the Disney Facebook page & Twitter.
Angelina Jolie is DEFINITELY playing Maleficent, and Elle Fanning will be playing Aurora.
I’ve been looking forward to this movie for YEARS! Back in the days when Tim Burton was in talks of being the director. Now Robert Stromberg will be directing; his first time doing so. He’s worked on visual effects in movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Newsies, Cast Away, and 2012; and was production director on Avatar & Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. I’m really, really excited for this!
Angelina Jolie as Maleficent
In theaters March 2014
Well Elle Fanning is going to play Aurora AND I LOVE HER
This makes me even more excited for the movie!
“On May 12, 2009, it was revealed that Brad Bird was developing a live-action movie based on Sleeping Beauty, retold from the point of view of Maleficent with Angelina Jolie starring as Maleficent. In January 2010, it was rumored that Tim Burton will direct this movie instead, though Burton actually denies it. Linda Woolverton, who previously collaborated with Tim Burton on Alice in Wonderland, is writing the script for the movie. Angelina Jolie said in an interview that she is definitely interested in the role. Don Hahn, a producer of the movie, confirmed that Disney is developing a film about Maleficent and that it is in active development.” (source: Wikipedia)
If anyone has seen the musical Wicked, or knows what it’s mainly about, Maleficent is supposed to be told in a similar way.
I’m really quite excited for it to come out! It’s not supposed to until sometime in 2013, though.
What are your thoughts about this upcoming movie?
