Angelina Jolie gives a spellbinding performance in the untold story of Disney's iconic 'Sleeping Beauty' villainess.
What drove Maleficent to curse the baby Aurora in the classic Disney animation 'Sleeping Beauty'? We find out in this dazzling live-action fantasy, which reimagines the fairytale from the perspective of its memorable Mistress of All Evil! Betrayed by Stefan (Toby Regbo), who becomes the human king (Sharlto Copley), formerly pure-hearted Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) is driven by a burning desire for vengeance. So she places a curse on Stefan's newborn daughter, Princess Aurora. As Aurora grows into a teenager (Elle Fanning), she's caught in the escalating conflict between the forest kingdom and the human world. First-time director Robert Stromberg is an effects and production design wizard who won Oscars for his art direction on 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Avatar'. As you might expect, 'Maleficent' combines a compelling storyline and Angelina Jolie's star power with amazing visuals.
