Disney has just released a new two-minute featurette for "Maleficent," their latest live-action retelling of their 1959 animated classic "Sleeping Beauty." This behind-the-scenes look has its stars Angelina Jolie, who will be playing the wickedly-talented horned sorceress, and Elle Fanning, who plays young Princess Aurora in the film, comparing their new film to the all-time Disney classic.
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.
