Maleficent opens to Southwest Riverside movie theaters and beyond this weekend in the 1hr 37min – Rated PG – Action/Adventure story by Director: Robert Stromberg – Cast: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Juno Temple, Lesley Manville, Sam Riley.
In the nature of fairy tales being turned inside out and upside down, this is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.”
A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman with stunning black wings, Maleficent, has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army of humans threatens the harmony of the land.
Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal, an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the king of the humans and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom, and to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.
