Elle Fanning gets lured into the forest by magic in this new still from the upcoming Maleficent.
In the film, driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora (Fanning).
As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

“She really got into her character in a way,” Elledished about Angelina Jolie taking on the lead role in their upcoming film, Maleficent.
She added, “Like she was very, so into the details of her clothes. She came into rehearsals on the first day with her Maleficent staff and she was in normal clothes but then had that. She was like, ‘I have to get used to it. It’s part of my character.’ I thought that was so cool.”
Elle Fanning celebrates her 16th birthday with a long floral dress in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (April 9).
The Maleficent actress kept close to a male friend while out for a family dinner in Beverly Hills. Happy birthday, Elle!
Earlier in the week, Elle was seen celebrating her May 2014 Marie Claire cover where she opened up about her upcoming flick with Angelina Jolie.
“Angelina looks pretty cool. They added the cheekbones on top of her already, like, amazing cheekbones. I couldn’t think of anyone else to play that part,” she shared. “Because when you think of Maleficent, she’s definitely the prettiest Disney villain — the most elegant.”
Elle added, “Just being a princess is like, every girl’s dream. I mean, Sleeping Beauty was my favorite … she’s great. She’s the best one.”
“I definitely know what kind of lifestyle I want to have,” Lizzie told the mag. “Some people recognize you for your work, not for being pictured going to clubs. So, I try and keep that kind of profile that people know you from your work and that’s it. There are some jobs that I’ve said no to, because I know what kind of attention they will bring. I choose not to have that specific kind of attention.”
Elle opened up about her style, saying, “I like to dress my age. You don’t want to look too old when you’re not, or too young when you’re not.”
