Maleficent Movie Poster

Maleficent


Rated: PG

Did you ever wonder about the life of the iconic villain from the Disney classic "Sleeping Beauty?" Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) had an idyllic childhood until an army of humans invades her peaceful forest kingdom. As Maleficent fights to protect her home, she suffers a betrayal so great that it turns her kind heart to stone.

Bent on revenge, she places a curse on the human king's newborn daughter, Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning). As the princess grows up, Maleficent begins to realize that Aurora may be the one who holds the key to peace in the forest, and to Maleficent's happiness.

Nominated for: Best Costume Design
