It’s just three short weeks until Maleficent arrives on the big screen, and Disney have released five new character posters to mark the upcoming movie release.
Angelina Jolie looks sublimely evil as the wicked fairy, while Sam Riley looks dark and troubled as Diaval, her right hand man. The posters also showcase Sharlto Copley as Aurora’s father, King Stefan and Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville as Flora, Fauna and Merryweather, the three good fairies, along with a host of other magical fairytale creatures. Elle Fanning stars as the Princess Aurora, and looks suitably naive and inquisitive in the picture.


Maleficent tells the tale of Sleeping Beauty from the evil side. This live action film reveals the heart that lies behind one of Disney’s most iconic villains, and why she came to curse the baby Aurora.

I know I keep saying this, but I can’t say it enough; I am so excited for this movie! Angelina Jolie just seems perfect for the role, and the haunting posters only make me even more determined to be one of the first in line to see it when it opens on May 28 in the UK (May 30 in the US)
