I used to love watching the Disney classics when I was a kid.  Ok, I admit I still love to watch Disney classics as an adult.  Yes, I will happily admit that!  One of my favorites is “Sleeping Beauty,” with the beautiful princess Aurora and the evil Maleficent.  Don’t you ever wonder what made Maleficent evil like she was?  Well, we can learn more about her in the upcoming theatrical release of “Maleficent.”  The movie will be coming to theaters everywhere on May 30th, 2014.

Maleficent 2


From Disney comes “Maleficent—the untold story of Disney’s most iconicvillain 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.

  1. I’m very curious how this one will turn out, since it’s a remake of one of their own which is already awesome.
