It was revealed at the D23 Expo last August that Disney will produce the movie Maleficent, starring none other than Angelina Jolie.
Maleficent is Jolie's first movie role in after three and a half years. She will play the enchantress who cursed the young Princess Aurora, who will be played by Elle Fanning, to eternal slumber.
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.
