By the picture one can assume the object of this blog post. I must say that I was shocked to find out they were doing a movie about Maleficent. Not because she wasn't interesting, or because I didn't think that there was a story there. No, my disbelief came from the fact that I thought I was the only one who was in love with her.
I have talked before about being a heavy movie watcher and as a kid the Disney line up was one of the first mythologies I was introduced to. Of course I crushed on Ariel(who didn't) and Belle was a beautiful bookworm, what's not to love? Mulan(probably one of my favorites) was awesome.
Still, as a kid while watching sleeping beauty and having people talk about Aurora, I was focused elsewhere. I mean Maleficent had a raven(still love that evil little Diablo) one of my favorite birds. Was she good? No. Still, she was intriguing and she had style. Throw in the green skin, a great voice, purple eye shadow and I was hooked. Besides all that she turned into a freaking dragon and almost took out the pretty boy prince, if not for those goody goody fairies. (I may have had some issues as a kid...might still. lol)
Still I am not one to judge until the movie is out and I have seen it. I was relieved or at least granted some of my diminished excitement back when I watched the latest trailer.
With Lana Del Rey singing with her haunting tones on Once Upon a Dream and the update on the graphics I have to say it gave me chills. I truly can't wait for this movie.
Here is the trailer below.
