MIAMI - HBO presents the exclusive premiere of Maleficent<http://www.hbomax.
Maleficent is a beautiful young fairy of pure heart who lives in the Moors, a magical forest away from all human contact. She becomes her land’s fiercest protector after an invading army threatens her people and makes the mistake of trusting a man she had known since childhood. When the terrible betrayal breaks her heart and twists her into a creature bent on revenge, she engages in an epic battle with the king’s successor and curses his newborn daughter, baby Aurora – later realizing that the child could be the only person who can restore her peace.
Directed by Robert Stromberg, Disney reimagines the 1959 animated film ‘Sleeping Beauty’ in this live-action remake from the perspective of the antagonist, with performances by Angelina Jolie (Maleficent) and Elle Fanning (Aurora), among others.
