Let me remind you that this is not the first we’ve seen of new modern adaptations of children classic fairytales. Does Little Red Riding Hood starring Amanda Seyfried ring a bell?
Now Disney – the global entertainment organisation that began these classic tales in the 20th Century has began its pursuit of revamping these children classics to a new audience. The victim this time is their 1956 adaptation of Sleeping Beauty. However, more focus is on Angelina Jolie (Tomb Raider, Mr & Mrs Smith) sinister character as the villain who watched over the sleeping beauty princess all of her life. Ladies, gentlemen and kids, be very afraid.
Wait before you starting doing your hisses and boo chants. The villain was once a very pure-hearted good soul, until a betrayal made her cold as ice. This pursuit of revenge and personality of evil cause her to curse on newborn Aurora, who eventually becomes the mediator of peace between her and the king as well the source her happiness.
This is the first time that we’ll see the classic actress taking on a villainous role.
