MALEFICENT (English): Director: Robert Stromberg | Cast: Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copling and Elle Fanning.
“It’s a reinvention not just re-telling the story” said Linda Woolverton Screenplay writer of ‘Maleficent’. Disney brings us ‘Maleficent’, directed by Robert Stromberg. It is the story of Maleficent (from the famous fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty) who is the witch who is not invited to Princess Aurora’s christening as she curses Aurora that on her 16th birthday she will prick her finger and then she will go into a deep sleep.
Elle Fanning who plays the role of Princess Aurora said, “I was not scared but rather intrigued by the character of Maleficent when I saw the animated story of Sleeping Beauty.”
“Everyone has heard the story of Sleeping Beauty from the point where the christening is happening but this film is about the story that led to the circumstances before the curse,” says Angelina Jolie who plays the role of the wicked Maleficent in ‘Maleficent’.
A dark fantasy in 2D and 3D versions. It is said that the movie brings the good old classic story to life like never before.
