How do you take a tale as old as time and make it current?
That is the challenge that film makers had with the new Maleficent movie.
I am so happy to say that they met this challenge and exceeded it. From casting to costume creation to the world that is portrayed in Maleficent each piece is more amazing than you expect.
I had the opportunity to see Maleficent during a press to LA last week. During our visit we also had the opportunity to interview Angelina Jolie…oh my goodness I can’t believe I just typed that! Elle Fanning who plays Aurora, Sharlto Copley who plays the king, Director Richard Stromberg.
Today I am so excited to finally talk about Maleficent. Do you know how hard it is to not tell everyone you know about a movie that rocks your socks off for over a week! Holy heck it was hard!
I couldn’t even tell my Husband because I want him to experience the movie like I did with no preconceived notions.
With that being said I am going to tell you that this movie ROCKS!
I am not going to giveaway any spoilers or give you too much info because I want you to experience the movie and not know the twists, turns or amazing story line ahead of time.
The casting of Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning was pure genius!
Both of these actresses are beyond perfect for this movie! They both exceeded my expectation for their characters!
This movie is filled with love, hate and lessons we can all learn from.
I found myself entranced watching this movie! I am not really sure I blinked during the movie I was so entranced.
The story is what you expect and then not what you expect. The story writers due an unbelievable job.
If you are wondering if you should see this movie my answer is a resounding YES! This is one of the best movies I have seen in a really long time.
There truly is something for everyone during this movie.
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the movie! It opens today in theaters and I can’t wait to see it again!
