Disney's Maleficent gets a release date

04.09.2012

Disney has confirmed the release for Angelina Jolie's MALEFICENT. It will hit theaters March 14, 2014.

While that is still almost two years away, the film seems to be chugging along nicely. The press release from Disney also touts production designer Robert Stromberg (AVATAR, ALICE IN WONDERLAND, OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL), screenwriter Linda Woolverton (BEAUTY AND THE BEAST), and producer Joe Roth (ALICE IN WONDERLAND, OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL.

We also get the closest thing to a plot synopsis as well: the live-action film explores the origins of the evil fairy Maleficent and what led her to curse Princess Aurora in Disney’s animated classic Sleeping Beauty.

There are two ways that this movie could go. It could follow the SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN route and tell a dark and original tale grounded in the same fairy tale or it could be loud, bombastic, and brightly colored like MIRROR, MIRROR or the aforementioned ALICE IN WONDERLAND. I am hoping against hope that Disney will create a film that challenges the viewed instead of making a family friendly princess movie. Disney has taken some darker chances with the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN movies, so hopefully they will aim for a more sinister tone with this film.

Extra Tidbit: I think we will all know which direction this movie is going in once casting for the other roles gets underway.

This is actually a really cool idea for a movie but I wish it wasn't a Disney production cause it's almost guaranteed to be neutered.

Photoshoping

I've noticed an increase in photoshopped images here on joblo to poke fun/give an idea of what the article is about and I have to say I love it. Some are kinda poopy but still funny aka Michael Bay blowing up my dreams with the turtles. Then ones like this Angelina Jolie as Maleficent get me pumped. Keep up the good work whoever you are.

Hmm, I always thought this was just going to be a variation on Sleeping Beauty, like Snow White and the Huntsman. But the description says its about her origin, so maybe its more like the musical Wicked, where the story takes place prior to the original movie? Curious.

This isn't coming out for so long... how dare Joblo post this non movie news!!!!! Sorry I had to be the first one to bash you guys haha, but seriously this movie could be good but I just get the vibe that it will be more like Mirror Mirror and not worth anyones time, hopefully I'm wrong.
