Some of our bloggers have already pre-viewed Maleficent in Hollywood and interviewed Angelina Jolie. What an event! And what a life-time experience indeed!
Not being able to attend the Hollywood crowd, we are heading over to a preview of Maleficent on August 28 right here in the heart of Palm Beach, Florida. The event will be well attended and I am looking forward to meet the celebs and the organizers!
As a sneak-peak, here’s one of the clips from Maleficent – Fairy Godmother. In it, Aurora and Maleficent come face-to-face in the Moors.
“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.
The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
“Maleficent” is produced by Joe Roth and directed by Robert Stromberg, with Angelina Jolie, Michael Vieira, Don Hahn, Palak Patel, Matt Smith and Sarah Bradshaw serving as executive producers. Linda Woolverton wrote the screenplay. “Maleficent” opens in U.S. theaters on May 30, 2014.
