Guess what I found this morning? The brand new Disney Maleficent Movie Poster!!!!! Do you see all those exclamation points? That’s because this is incredibly exciting!
Don’t get me wrong, I love my Disney princesses and all of the Disney heroes…but there’s just something about that classic Disney villain Maleficent. What’s her story? Why is so she dang evil? What makes her tick? I’ve always wondered what happened behind the scenes to make Maleficent the way she was…and now we’re all going to find out when Disney’s Maleficent movie comes to theaters on May 30th, 2014!!
From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain 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.
