Moseying over to Indie YA Books I found the post Animated or Live, discussing the new fairytale movies that have come out lately.
The first mention goes to Maleficent, staring Angelina Jolie, the new Disney movie about the evil fairy in Sleeping Beauty. It’s a wonderful twist to the story of this evil person, who turns out to be not so evil, but a woman scorned and wounded by love. The evil spell she cast on Princess Aurora brings Maleficent to watch over the child to make sure her incantation comes to pass. Unfortunately for the fairy, she falls in love with the child.
If you love fairy tales with a dark tone check out Maleficent if you haven’t already.
Do you enjoy the remake of these fairy tales or do you prefer the animated Disney versions? I’d love to hear your opinion.
