SLEEPING BEAUTY GOES…DARK!


I still rememeber watching those amazing Disney Classics as a kid. “The Jungle Book”, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves”, “Beauty and The Beast”, “Cinderella”, but one of my favourites as a child was “Sleeping Beauty”.

The tale of this princess haunted me when I was younger and made me fall in love with horror movies.

Disney shaped millions of people all over the globe, but unfortunately the brand has been losing its power in later years.

Dreamworks and Pixar took over the animated movies monopoly and left Disney behind.

After many attempts it seemed that Disney was unable to make another great film.

Until NOW…

Angelina Jolie stars in the movie that is set to bring back fans to the Disney house. “Maleficent” tells us the story of the eternal evil witch sister from “Sleeping Beauty”, in a dark and chilling mood.

In a way it makes sense, “Sleeping Beauty” was the movie that made me love horror so watching it in a dark and twisted way makes me very happy indeed.

JustĀ watching this trailer sends shivers down my spine and a sense of excitement as well.

We cannot wait for the movie to come out. And maybe fall in love with Disney all over again.
