Disney’s Maleficent is going to be a new take on the classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty told from the villainess Maleficent’s point of view. After watching the trailer it seems clear many elements are truthful to the original story including the curse of the princess, the spinning wheel and the forest of trees, brambles and thorns. However the story and characters are heavily influenced by Disney’s original Sleeping Beauty animation of 1959, although a lot darker. The song “Once Upon a Dream” originally written for the animation, is now modernized and sung by Lana del Rey, who gives it a chilling twist and eery aspect.
