On May 28th, the lights will be going down so fans can experience that signature Disney magic with a dark, dark spin at the “Maleficent” movie premiere. There will be horned villains, gallant princes, beautiful princesses, tree monsters, dragons and fairies. Such fun! Have you realized that many fairytales don’t even have fairies in them? Well, that’s not the case with this classic tale that explores the powers of good and evil and the supernatural. This flick is full of preternatural creatures, including Angelina Jolie, who dons a horned headpiece and enhanced cheekbones to become the self-proclaimed Mistress of All Evil. Yes, ALL evil, and she does a splendid job.
It’s been a while since fans have been Miss Angelina on the big screen. She voiced the tiger in 2011′s “Kung Fu Panda” Secrets of the Masters” and appeared in 2010′s “The Tourist”, but she hasn’t been doing much lately. She’ll be joined by Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Lesley Manville, Juno Temple and a host of princes, kings and fairies. As you’ve heard, the film recounts the untold story of Maleficent’s past, her heroism protecting her lands and the backstabbing betrayal that turned her heart to stone and caused her to curse the princess. Fortunately, a good fairy steps in, tinkers with the curse and gets the sentence down from death to a 100-year sleep. Not so bad!
