We were at the theatre to see a preview of Disney's Frozen. And I was pretty happy about that. But then the previews began, and what to my wondering eyes should appear .... one of my favourite actors, Angelina Jolie, as my favourite Disney villain, Maleficent. Just ask my husband - I almost passed out from the excitement!
"Maleficent" opens on May 30, and I can't wait to see it! Here's the synopsis:
“Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty" and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.While I wait for the film to arrive, I'll just enjoy the trailers. Here is a new one released last night during the Grammy Awards. It features the award-winning, American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey, with her haunting reimagining of "Once Upon a Dream," the renowned fairy-tale tune from Disney’s classic animated film “Sleeping Beauty.” This song will feature in the end credits of the film. Enjoy!
