Our 14 Most Anticipated Movies Of 2014
Is a villain origin story a better alternative to a live-action remake? Time will tell, especially if we find ourselves too-closely comparing Maleficent to either of 2012’s Snow White movies. This alternate concept is certainly a more original approach to tapping the well of fan favorites. Disney’s taking a chance in dipping back into one of their most beloved classics to tell this story, and we’re hopeful that Maleficent will, at the very least, do the 1959 classic justice. Angelina Jolie looks a mixture of stunning and terrifying as the title character, and her performance may very well help Maleficent meet its potential as a brilliant villain story. We can’t wait to find out.
