While I was looking up Cinderella stuff It lead me to some Angelina Jolie photos on the set of ‘Maleficent‘ in the Buckinghamshire countryside, that I had not seen yet. I can’t believe I missed these, they were posted back in June! I also checked other news sites to see if they posted them, not many had. Funny how these slipped under the radar. I think these flicks bring some interesting insight into the re-vamped Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, which centers around how Maleficent becomes that evil green-skinned beauty. In these pictures you see ”Mistress of All Evil” in her raw tan color costume with antlers (atora) giving a mythical jackalope-ish feel. Something you might of seen in a Shakespeare play. Nothing I was expecting considering I’m accustomed to seeing the black/purple witch garb, from the classic Disney movie. I wonder if she has hoofed heels on? What do you think of this costume? I find it a bit devilish. Check out more pictures below.
Little Disney fact: Eleanor Audley, voiced Lady Tremaine and Maleficent in the Disney animated films.
Have you heard about the new live-action retelling of the fairy tale Cinderella that Disney has already set into production? I’m pretty excited Cinderella is one of my favorite fairy tales of all time. Next to Sleeping Beauty which I am twiddling my thumbs in anticipation to for the release of Maleficent. Rumors of Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett may play the Wicked Step Mother – Lady Tremaine, in the upcoming film. She would be the first to join the film. The live-action Cinderella is set to be directed by Mark Romanek and written by Chris Weitz. What do you think of Blanchette as Lady Tremaine?

This is big news if you are a fan of the Disney classic Sleeping Beauty or a die-hard Angelina Jolie fan. Disney has officially released the date of March 14th, 2014 for their upcoming Maleficent (of Sleeping Beauty) movie. The new live-action adaptions of the Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale Sleeping Beauty. The film follows the dark fairy’s origin story, giving her more depth from the classic Fairy Tale. It’s said and hopes that Angelina Jolie will play the lead role of Maleficent. Originally Tim Burton was going to produce and direct the film but has dropped out for whatever reason. So Academy Award-winning production designer Robert Stromberg (of Avatar, Alice in Wonderland and Oz: The Great and Powerful) will direct with a script by Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Alice in Wonderland). I can not wait for this movie to come out Sleeping Beauty was one of my favorite Fairy Tales growing one year my mom made a costume that was reversible pink and blue two costumes in one! I’m also really glad to see Fairy Tale movies are blowing look like they are going to be taking over that superheros niche. This is not an official picture from the movie it’s just some fan art I found.
