Release Date for Disney’s Maleficent


Release Date for Disney’s Maleficent

Disney has finally announced March 14, 2014 as the release date for the new live action retelling of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, entitled “Maleficent”, with Hollywood A-lister Angelina Jolie helming the project as Maleficent herself. Other stars slated to join the project are Jude Law and Elle Fanning, but the actors have yet to sign any contracts.

Maleficent is set to go against heavy odds, as it will open against DreamWorks’ CG animated take on Mr. Peabody and Sherman, as well as Sony’s upcoming sci fi thriller Invertigo. Disney is confident that Maleficent will prevail, though, dubbing the film as a live action exploration of the origins of the evil fairy Maleficent, as well as the real reason why she cursed Princess Aurora in the classic fairy tale.

Robert Stromberg, who is the Oscar-winning production designer behind Avatar and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, will direct Maleficent. The script will be penned by Linda Woolverton, of The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Alice in Wonderland.
