Every year around my birthday I see a movie I really want to watch and I start bugging my husband to go see it with me. Generally he is a good sport about it, even if 90% of the time it is what he would consider a "chick flick". This year, however, he is actually as excited to see this movie as I am.
Now keep in mind that I almost always root for the evil villain in horror movies or fairy tales. I just usually find those characters more interesting. There is usually something that drove them to be the way they are. Case in point, the evil and absolutely awesome Maleficent!
Disney has posted an about section on their official site that you find here to read more about how Maleficent became so evil: http://movies.disney.com/maleficent/about/story
Another reason for my total interest in this film, Angelina Jolie. I am a huge fan of her work, and love her or hate her, you have to admit she is talented. I think her look is perfect and she is exactly the kind of presence that Maleficent needs to come to life. The trailer below, is kinda freaky.

Below is the original animation of Maleficent from Disney's 1959 Sleeping Beauty. So I think they cast really well!
