First look at Angelina Jolie in ‘Sleeping Beauty’ prequel



Today we’ve got the first look at Angelina Jolie in the “Sleeping Beauty” prequel “Maleficent.” With the popularity surrounding fairy tales right now, it’s obvious that “Sleeping Beauty” would be thrown somewhere into the mix. The plot actually sounds very similar to the Broadway musical “Wicked” where it is told from the antagonist’s perspective. In “Wicked” they retell the “Wizard of Oz” story from the wicked witch’s perspective and the witch is more of a victim than a villain. I am curious to see if they will go that route with “Maleficent” which is scheduled for release in 2014.

First and foremost, Ryan Brown is a fan. He has been an avid fan of both the theater and cinema since an early age and his passion for both has been continually growing ever since. When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.
