Maleficent
Maleficent | Elizabeth Rudnick
25 posts | 15 read | 11 to read
A deluxe novelization of the Walt Disney Studios film Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie. This visually dazzling live action film explores the origins of one of the most iconic Disney villains: Maleficent, the infamous fairy who curses Princess Aurora in Disney's animated classic Sleeping Beauty. This "origin" story is told from Maleficent's perspective, intersecting with the classic in both familiar and unexpected ways. The movie stars Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, and is directed by two-time Oscar-winning production designer Robert Stromberg ( Avatar, Alice in Wonderland). The film co-stars Elle Fanning ( Super 8) as the Princess Aurora, and features Sharlto Copley ( District 9), Imelda Staunton ( Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), and Juno Temple ( Atonement).

I don‘t keep my books very long after I read them. So I don‘t have copies of old favorites to show that I haven‘t shown 1000x before. So instead I will show you my #oldfavorite dragon that I have had for over 20 years that watches over all my books. Someplace Wicket (who is at least 30) is also standing guard.

The two books on the left are what Maya took with her to camp. The pile on the right are all the books & comics she was sent by her grandparents and us.

Only one other kid in her cabin had a book, for a TWO week sleepaway camp! 😮 Whereas my kid read all of these multiple times! And thankfully, despite lots of rain at pick up today, only Maleficent seems to have succumbed to severe water damage. 🎉

Again, this very often read more as a middle-grade (or even younger, if not for the fact that it could sometimes be frightening for small children) novelization than YA, but overall, it's still a pick, because Rudnick's gift for description is considerable, and the reimagining of Maleficent is brilliant. Time for a movie night. #maleficent #disney #elizabethrudnick

I'm not sure that this should have been classified and shelved as YA at the library; it reads more at a middle-grade level, but I'm enjoying it nonetheless. (I also still need to watch the film, honestly. I'm a slacker.) #maleficent #elizabethrudnick #disney

Sometimes, you just need to pick up something that'll only take about twenty minutes* to read. Especially when it's a Disney villainess origins story.

*dramatic exaggeration because it's not even 7:00am yet.

#herebedragons Sleeping Beauty has always been one of my favorite Disney movies and I absolutely loved Maleficent. And I loved that she could become a dragon! Picked this plush dragon up at Disneyland last December during their 60th anniversary celebration. #sheismydarkside #disneydragons

rubyslippersreads Great dragon and photo! I was absolutely terrified of Maleficent when I was a kid, but now I love her. 🐉 3y
TheNextBook @rubyslippersreads I honestly dont know why I loved her but I did. I love the three fairies too. I felt like the story was way more about them and Maleficent then with Aurora. And I don't know who did Maleficents voice in the movie but I loved it. That laugh got me everytime. 3y
Vexingcircumstance @TheNextBook Eleanor Audley did her voice (I looked it up - I do know a lot of movie trivia but I don't have random Disney voice actors from the 50s memorized lol). 3y

I am so damned ashamed of myself for not initially thinking of Maleficent as one of my favorite villains. She was so mad at being pushed to the side and discarded that she cursed a baby. I liked this book but I would love to see another, darker retelling of her history. Maleficent whose name even means causing or capable of causing harm or mischief. Yep. Definitely one of my #favoritevillains #septemberphotochallenge #madatmyself

Karkar She is my favorite! 3y
Centique My favourite too - as a child watching the original Disney movie she terrified me. And yet she was magnificent. To me her name whispered magnificence as well! 3y
TheNextBook @Karkar @Centique I absolutely loved her in the Disney movie. I was more amazed that anything because of how afraid everyone was of her. She had so much power. 3y

Spoiler Alert: Maleficent is one of my favorite all time villains! So I loved this. It gave her a life. It wasn't perfect. I would have loved it to be darker but it's Disney so... Regardless the book itself is gorgeous and I read this is in no time.

sbond0085 I didn't know it was a book! I will definitely have to read it! 3y
TheNextBook @sbond0085 Yes!!!! And it is such a pretty book too! There was an interactive one for the ipad too but it was more behind the scenes movie making. 3y
