India Eisley is going to the dark side again.
The movie will “explore the origins of the evil fairy and what led her to curse Princess Aurora (Fanning) in Disney’s animated classic Sleeping Beauty,” Variety reports.
It was also announced that Sharlto Copley will co-star as Stefan, the half-human, half-fairy bastard son of the human king (Kenneth Cranham), Sam Riley as Maleficent’s right-hand man, Miranda Richardson as Maleficent’s regal aunt, and Brit thesps Imelda Staunton and Lesley Manville as pixies who care for Aurora.
Maleficent is set to start production in June.
