am I the only one that doesnt want this to be made? The main reason i think maleficent is such an interesting villian is because shes so mysterious and we have to use our imagination to figure out her backstory. Why does everything nowadays have to have a backstory and be so in depth? Whatever happened to using your imagination? its a simple childrens fairytale and its a classic, it doesnt have to be elaborated upon, also Tim Burtons overrated and uses Depp as a crutch..
You don't HAVE to take it into consideration as cannon with the fairytale or animated classic. This hopefully will not even be a remake (remember Planet of The Apes and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory?) but it's always nice to play around. As a Disney fan I expect you enjoy adaptations of classic literary works, Disney is very liberal when it comes to adaptations and it's very biased to only give them the benefit of the doubt. I'm in no way condoning this remake craze Hollywood is going through, but I would like to see this more as another adaptation. Tim Burton overrated? Yeah, every Hot Topic poser I meet considers him a genius for the fact that he gave them Jack Skelington, but just because he is overrated doesn't mean he isn't any good. I admit, I'm getting tired of "the dark alternative" he gives to movies, his ridiculously bad sets, or his collaboration crutches, but I do think he is a good director regardless of growing stale.
