Elle Fanning Joins ‘Maleficent’

Elle Fanning (Super 8) has signed on to star opposite Angelina Jolie in Disney’s Maleficent, their live-action fantasy film that focuses on the villainess in Sleeping Beauty.

Fanning will play Sleeping Beauty, aka Princess Aurora.

Robert Stromberg will direct Maleficent from a screenplay by Linda Woolverton (Alice in Wonderland).

We’re super excited for this one!


  1. I loved her in Super 8. I see her as a bit young for this role, but we’ll see. She’s a fantastic actress!

  2. My knowledge of Aurora is purely based on the Disney – and all the Disney princesses always looked older than teenagers to me – even though they were supposed to be teens. With the exception of Ariel and Rapunzel that is.
