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).
I don’t know about you but I am pretty excited about this one. I love to see animated fairy tales come to life and hear a different version of the story. Talented actress Angelina Jolie will star as the evil queen who tried to do Aurora in, in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. The calendar is marked for roughly two years from now…I will be seeing this when it hits theaters! What about you?
