Hot News from #Disney: #Maleficent & #AngelinaJolie

Hot news from Disney this week and in more than one sense! They've started production just last week on a new movie, Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie and co-stars: Sharlto Copley (“District 9”), Elle Fanning (“Super 8”), Sam Riley (“On the Road”), Imelda Staunton (“Vera Drake”), Miranda Richardson (“The Hours”), Juno Temple (“Atonement”) and Lesley Manville (“Secrets & Lies”).

They've enlisted an all-star cast and production team including two-time Oscar®-winning production designer Robert Stromberg (“Avatar,” “Alice in Wonderland”) in his directorial debut, Joe Roth as the producer and Angelina Jolie, Don Hahn, Matt Smith and Palak Patel as executive producers.

Written by Linda Woolverton (“The Lion King,” “Beauty and the Beast”), “Maleficent” is the story behind "Sleeping Beauty". What we've always been curious about...what exactly happened to Maleficent that led to her change to the dark side and the reasons behind the cursing of baby, Aurora. Teehee...I have to admit, as much as I love Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs, I never knew Snow White's name was Aurora when the story first came to life in the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” Interesting, right? Did you know? Do you remember the villain as Maleficent?

Watch for Maleficent, scheduled to be released in 3D, on March 14, 2014.
