Starring Angelina Jolie, Juno Temple, Elle Fanning and Sharlto Copley, Maleficent is “the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty. A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal – an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realises that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom – and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.”

Maleficent is released 30 May 2014. You can buy Disney’s Sleeping Beauty on Blu-ray for £24.45 at Amazon.co.uk.
