Super 8 star Elle Fanning talks about being princess Aurora in a re-imagining of the 1950’s animated feature film, Maleficent. Fanning plays the fifteeen year old “sleeping beauty” who is cursed to a sleep-like death by Maleficent (Angelina Jolie). “I’ve had the best time. It’s really incredible,” says the fresh-faced actress about playing her most loved Disney princess.
Fanning’s first work in a feature film is in I Am Sam (2001) when she was 3 and playing the younger version of her older sister Dakota. Other movies include The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Ginger and Rosa.
Maleficent is due out May 28, 2014.
