  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. I think she will do really good. Wasn’t Aurora only, like, 16 anyways?

  3. 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.
