Oh yes, I think Angelina Jolie would be a great evil witch queen. She certainly can up the evil factor with her sharp eyebrows and catty eyes. The colored contacts certainly help. But most of all, she can act evil and mysterious very brilliantly. And to me, Maleficentis still one of the scariest villains Disney has ever shown on screen. If you’ve seen Disney’s animated Sleeping Beauty film, you should know what I mean. I’m excited to see how well she translates to live action in this movie.
Check out the full poster below.
Maleficent stars Angelina Jolie as the title character, Elle Fanning (Super 8) as Princess Aurora, and Brenton Thwaites (Home and Away) as Prince Phillip. Also in the film are Sharlto Copley (District 9), Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who), and Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix).
We are so fortunate to have perhaps the most talented YA/fantasy YouTube artist (Paris Ormerod) working with us, and we’re absolutely delighted to present her latest gem of a video:
Paris puts such meticulous effort and creativity into her videos. As you can see, this is molded and sculpted for anyone who truly loves Disney and Pixar films. Please let her know how much you appreciate her work if you enjoyed this!
Tom Hiddleston has been tapped to voice a young Captain James Hook in the upcoming Peter Pan spin-off The Pirate Fairy. Hiddleston will play a cabin boy named James who grows up to be the villainous captain. Mad Men star, Christina Hendricks, is also slated to be part of the film, voicing a fairy named Zarina.
When a misunderstood dust-keeper fairy named Zarina steals Pixie Hollow’s all-important Blue Pixie Dust, and flies away to join forces with the pirates of Skull Rock, Tinker Bell and her fairy friends must embark on the adventure of a lifetime to return it to its rightful place. However, in the midst of their pursuit of Zarina, Tink’s world is turned upside down. She and her friends find that their respective talents have been switched and they have to race against time to retrieve the Blue Pixie Dust and return home to save Pixie Hollow. With comedy, heart and epic thrills for the whole family, “The Pirate Fairy” sets sail Spring 2014.
Social media manager and Pixar enthusiast Jon Negroni has come up with a zany yet pretty mind-blowing theory on how all of the Disney/Pixar films are interconnected, and not just by the “Easter eggs” included in each film.
A quick summation: Negroni sees Brave as the first and last movie in the timeline and argues that the witch from the 2012 film — about a young girl in the Scottish Highlands who seeks independence — sparked a population of intelligent animals. This action set up a power struggle in the future films between humans, animals and machines.
Negroni’s theory is intense, but it’s also an extremely amusing read! Check out his essay here and check out the Cracked.com video that inspired him here!
