When I was in 6th grade, my class did the play Sleeping Beauty – I was the green fairy. The play was fantastic, and actually launched our amazing teacher’s “side job” of running the drama club (which he still does today,
many, many years later). Note, that’s a story for another day.
In the story of Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent, the evil villain puts a spell on a beautiful infant, Aurora, who eventually becomes Sleeping Beauty.
What happened to Maleficent to make her so evil? Next summer, we will all find out!
“Maleficent,” the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty,” reveals the events that hardened Maleficent’s heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora.
Disney’s Maleficent will star Angelina Jolie in the title role, and is scheduled to open May 30, 2014.
Watch the trailer – it looks a little scary!! (I’m pretty sure this will be a popular movie, the trailer already has over 7.3 million views!)
