Elle Fanning's 'Aurora' Is The Focus Of Latest MALEFICENT Featurette

This new "Playing A Princess" featurette for Disney's upcoming retelling of the origin of one of their most infamous villains highlights the Sleeping Beauty herself, Aurora, who is played by Super 8 actress Elle Fanning.

From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.

Maleficent is produced by Joe Roth and directed by Robert Stromberg, with Angelina Jolie, Don Hahn, Matt Smith, Palak Patel and Sarah Bradshaw serving as executive producers. Linda Woolverton wrote the screenplay. Maleficent opens in theaters on May 30, 2014.

Hansel & Gretel ended up being an awesome movie. It really kicked ass.
Snow White & The Huntsman was not so good.
Alice in Wonderland kind of stunk as well

So one good and two bad....this one Im still curious to see. The wife definitly wants to so Im certain to see it.

Are there any other fairy tale turned big budget films Im forgetting?

What a dumpy looking Sleeping "Beauty" she is.
This is a tell-tale sign that Disney is out of ideas. They're re-doing all their animated classics as live action movies. Next is Cinderella and the Jungle Book.
Five gets you ten that the Little Mermaid is on the docket, too.
It's no wonder they're buying up so many franchises.

I can't wait to see Aurora strap on some plate mail and grab a sword and kill the evil dragon at the end. Like every other live action of these Disney Princess feminine icons (Alice in Wonderland, Snow White, etc.). I'm sure Cinderella will kill her evil step mother in a Wesley vs. Inigo Montoya type sword battle on the steps of the castle, too. Seems to be the way they're going with these things.

My GOD Kristen Stewart is a terrible actress and a horrible choice for Snow White
