Maleficent – Is Disney Crafting Another Classic?

by Yo Snyder

Sleeping Beauty is
one of my all-time favorite Disney movies, so when there was a live-action
version of the story was announced as some sort of prequel, I was extremely
skeptical. The fact that it would focus on the villain, Maleficent, had me even
more skeptical. Still, the casting of Angelina Jolie wasn’t a bad choice, and
now that the first trailer for Maleficent
is out, I have to admit, it looks pretty good. It has several elements straight
from the classic animated film, but looks like it will do enough to set itself
apart as well. And quite frankly, Jolie absolutely looks and sounds the part.
So much so that when she speaks and we get a full glimpse, it gave me chills
the first time. Share your own thoughts in the comments below.
