“Maleficent” SHOULD feel familiar, of course—it’s what Disney is counting on. What’s most surprising is how much they’re leaning thus far on recreating scenes from “Sleeping Beauty” that we’ve seen before, when I thought the whole idea was to show Maleficent’s tale from when she was younger, and how she turned bad. Elle Fanning’s Aurora sounds pretty much like Elle Fanning. The whole thing looks cool, but so did Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” from trailers alone.
