Sinister new versions of classic Disney stories are all the rage and Angelina Jolie stars in the latest: here she is as Maleficent in a moody re-imagining of Sleeping Beauty called… Maleficent. It sounds like The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs but with more headpieces. Jolie says of the character:

“I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other warmer qualities. You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is.”

Good point and a popular theme over here.

Elle Fanning is set to play Aurora.
