One of the great pleasures i had - since my early childhood - was wacthing movies and reading books. Even better whenI could combine the two and watch for example a Disney movie :)
I loved watching Snow White, Cinderella, Belle (who is my all time fav Disney Priness!), Ariel, Pocahontas and later on Mulan and Rapunzel and Tiana :) But today I will speak of Aurora... now I dont know how many of you know Sleeping Beauty's name but it is Aurora ;) And as you know Aurora's Evil Godmother that was not invited to her birthday was Maleficent!
- "You poor, simple fools! You think you can defeat me?! ME, the mistress of all evil!?"
Here is the short explaining from IMDB (my fav site when it comes to searching for info for movies and actors):
The "Sleeping Beauty" tale is told from the perspective of the villainous Maleficent and looks at the events that hardened her heart and drove her to curse young Princess Aurora.

Yes my dear friends, you read that right! The daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will be playing in this movie as well, along with her mother ;) She is the fraternal twin of brother Knox Leon. Sister of Shiloh, Maddox, Pax and Zahara.
Now there is one thing that is bothering me about the trailer... And that is Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora... Now I know that Elle is 15 years old and much closer to the age that the Princess should have (Aurora got pricked on her finger when she turned 16 ;) Trivia!) but she just feels somehow odd there... her accent, her much too young face... I am used to the Disney Aurora - young yet very feminine... especially in the scene with Prince Filip in the woods... Just have a look below:
P.S. I took the liberty to bold and italic the trivia that I found interesting and fitting ;)
P.S.S. Guess who did the first sketch? ;)))
The LadyBug that can hardly wait to see this movie :)
