Well in theory at least. The final product may very well be a lesser film than the classics, but the idea of "live action movie based on the character of Maleficent" excites me a lot more than say "animated film based on the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast." Though I doubt it'll be a superior film.

Someone should change the title of this discussion, since Tim Burton has nothing to do with this production. "Maleficent (starring Angelina Jolie)", "Maleficent (2014 movie)", "Maleficent (live action movie)" or something like that would be a better title.

Does anyone know if the three good fairies will be in the film or are they focusing mainly on Maleficent and Aurora?

I would think if Aurora's in it...the fairies...have to be...I mean, they're there at her birth...and take care of her till Maleficent's demise.

Oh, I think I get what you mean. All the Disney canon classics will probably be better...but this film will excite you more no matter what, just like a Cinderella live-action film (that actually was based on the Disney version) could potentially give me eternal orgasms like no other classic besides Cinderella could.

Thank God that didn't happen. I would never have wanted to see this if Theron was the lead.

Some more casting rumors have surfaced, attached to some interesting characters! Fair warning, the article contains potential spoilers.

http://www.malextra.com/movies/movie-news/Jim+Sturgess-233300.html

Thoughts on casting/characters (spoilers): The idea of Maleficent having a lover initially comes off as a bit odd, but if handled correctly, could actually be amazing. Imagine if in a jealous and selfish rage, she transformed him into the raven, that's just golden! Having King Stefan as half-fairy is interesting as well, I'm looking forward to seeing how that plays into the story. The addition of Patrick Stewart and Dame Judi Dench/Emma Thompson as seemingly new characters is exciting as well, all three being very distinguished actors that will bring a lot of prestige to the project.

Can't to hear more news and eventually see some images![/url]

Hmm.... well I imagine that they got the names wrong and that Patrick Stewart is supposed to play King Hubert rather than King Henry. And likewise, does it say that Emma Thompson and Judi Dench have been approached to play "flittle"? Could that be a typo? Have they perhaps been approached to play two of the three good fairies?

Although Angela Lansbury and Debbie Reynolds as Flora and Fauna would be perfect in my opinion.

I'd love Angela Lansbury as Flora, Julie Andrews as Fauna and Debbie Reynolds as Merryweather.

It's a shame this movie wasn't made in time for my ideal casting of Rue McClanahan (Flora), Betty White (Fauna), and Bea Arthur (Merryweather) to take place. White is still alive a working obviously, but her recent surge of fame would likely overshadow the role.

Interesting casting, although I'd probably have Arthur as Flora rather than Merryweather.

Betty White could still make a wonderful fauna and while yes, her recent "comeback" may overshadow the role, it does at least make her more likely to be cast.

Debbie Reynolds fits perfectly as pretty much any of the fairies in my opinion. I always thought her character in the Halloweentown movies was a lot like a mixture of the three.

Merryweather is in many ways the hardest to cast. She seems to be younger than the other two, and comical in more of a stubborn, feisty way, rather than a broad, giggly, almost bumbling kind of way, which is why many people's dream casting of Kathy Najimy never really fit for me.

Well Maleficent seemed to want Phillip, and she did love that raven, so the possible changes to the story relevant to those points might fit okay.

Perhaps Kathy Bates? For some reason she just seems very Merryweather-ish to me. Say Dench is Flora and Thompson is Fauna, I could see that working fairly well.

I know they could be shrunk as fairies, but when playing the peasant women...you truly need short, small women. Kathy Bates is not that is she?

Her IMDB bio lists her as being 5'3", which I wouldn't consider to be very tall. She's not a thin woman by any means, but Merryweather is the biggest of the three fairies. She would likely look appropriate next to any of the actresses mentioned so far for the others.

I don't know how small those other women are either. The fairies in the film are very small.

film can edit the size of the actor/actress to appropriate height. LotR did the very well with Gimli and the hobbits.

Also look at Captain America. Amazing CGI skills unbuffing the actor. To the extent it tptally fooled me. I hadnt read anything of the movie and assumed they had two actors who looked very alike.

And Alice in Wonderland! There was loads of size adjustment in that movie.

The names mentioned for the Good Fairies (some where above) would make great castings! I really hope Disney hires older actresses to play them! I think Angela Lansbury, Julie Andrews would be great names.
I would love some one like Emma Stone to play Aurora, I think she would be a far more appealing choice than Fanning who seems far to young to play Princess Aurora!

So, King Stefan is actually a fairy? Hmmm, as long as they don't change him too much, i'm okay with that. Yeah, I would love the raven to actually be her true love. that'd be cute actually

The Walt Disney Studios has announced a U.S. release date of March 14, 2014, for Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie in the title role as Disney’s ultimate villain. The live-action film explores the origins of the evil fairy Maleficent and what led her to curse Princess Aurora in Disney’s animated classic Sleeping Beauty. Leading a team of visionary filmmakers known for creating and transporting audiences to new and exciting worlds, Academy Award®-winning production designer Robert Stromberg (Avatar, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland and Oz The Great and Powerful) will direct with a script by Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Alice in Wonderland). Maleficent is produced by Joe Roth (Disney’s Alice in Wonderland and Oz The Great and Powerful).
