I've never been more excited for a the release of a new Disney movie than Maleficent, scheduled for March 2014. Even the slogan "Evil Has A Beginning" sounds so ominous, that it's a perfect fit for this badass Villain-with-a-capital-V. Out of all the possible villains Disney could have chosen to feature, I couldn't be more pleased that they picked Maleficent. And having Angelina Jolie star as Maleficent couldn't be more perfect; I mean, her physique is a flawless match, anyways!
I've never been a fan of the typical "Old-School" Disney princess movies. You know what I'm talking about: the Princess is a sweet and innocent girl who gets caught up in some trouble, usually by a step-mother, and eventually requires the assistance of a prince towards the end of the film. For this reason, telling the well-known story of "Sleeping Beauty" from the Villain's perspective, highlighting the path she took that led her to curse Aurora, sounds incredibly promising.

In high anticipation for this movie - and inspiration from Lana Del Rey's amazing cover of Once Upon A Dream in the new trailer for this movie - I've uploaded a quick little lyric video, featuring Lana Del Rey and some awesome stills from the trailer. Hope you enjoy the song as much as I do.
I'm not sponsored in any way to brag about this movie (although, wouldn't it be great?) I just love it so much already.
Make sure to check out Disney's "Dream" Trailer; it's so fantastically done that you might just pass out for a minute like I did when I first saw it! And don't forget to see it in theaters this March (Can we keep discussing Angelina Jolie?)
