Elle Fanning has caught her an Aussie prince for Maleficent.
Of Home and Away fame, Brenton Thwaites, 22, will take on the role of the prince in the upcoming Disney film which tells the tale of the evil fairy witch.
The story will start out with Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) being slighted at the party for the birth of Aurora and crafts a tapestry about tension between the human and fairy worlds.
Lesley Manville, Imelda Staunton and Juno Temple were also cast for the three pixies who look after Aurora as she sleeps through Maleficent’s curse.
