Disney's just-released featurette seeks to dispel at least a glimmer of its riddle. Here's what we know now: Maleficent is "beautiful," "different," and "not what people expect." Cool, so is life, and that mystery has been nagging philosophers for eons. Elle Fanning says, "It's the classic story of Sleeping Beauty, but with so much more." Okay, girl. We could've gathered that from the three trailers. Then there's the film's screenwriter, who's quick to note this won't be a "retelling," but a "reinvention."
Alright, well, at least we know we're not being fed a live-version of the 1959 classic. Stay tuned for the next installment, where audiences will find out why Maleficent's cheeks are so enviable. Or, wait until May 30, when the movie, and all its mysteries, will be released to the public. (Empire)
