A SLEEPING BEAUTY REMAKE?

Living in Delaware her whole life, Jessica did not know much about Walt Disney World until she went at 13 years old. That initial trip, though, got her hooked on the magic. As the years went on, she did everything she could to learn more about Disney (including watching documentaries and reading books). She did not know many people that shared her passion until she discovered the wonders of the internet and the Disney community found on it. She has gotten involved with as many Disney projects as she can, including writing the weekly news articles for The Disney Driven Life and writing for her own blog, The True Disney Fan. Jessica has also taken on a position with Celebrations Magazine, working the social media aspects of the publication. Through all these platforms, Jessica strives to bring as much Disney magic as possible into her everyday life, and she works to share it with everyone she meets!

Tim Burton will be getting a lot of attention in the coming months as his newest creation, Alice in Wonderland, is released into theaters. With this project wrapped up, people are wondering what is next in the plans for the spooky director. The rumor is he’s looking at another Disney Classic to remake that will do anything but put you to sleep!

Burton may be interested in a live action remake of Disney’s 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty. In turn with the usual, darker side of Tim Burton films, this remake will be from the villain Maleficent’s perspective. Maleficent being one of the more frightening and darker villains herself, I think this would make an excellent idea for a film. I will be quite curious to see into the mind of Maleficent, see what the princess and the three good fairies look like to her. This movie has the potential to get the mind reeling!

But of course, this is only a rumor, nothing has been planned as of yet. If and when it does though, I think this may have just as much, if not more hype than Alice in Wonderland.

What do you think?

    Don’t let Tim Burton touch Sleeping Beauty!! Who cares about Maleficent!!

  • I’m intrigued to see the film from Maleficent’s point of view. I hope it’ll evoke similar feelings as when I watched Wicked on stage.
