I am extremely excited for the new film “Maleficient” with Angelina Jolie. I have an undying love for her, and for the tale of Sleeping Beauty, which will always remain my favorite Disney movie of all time and one of my favorite stories. Just goes to show that my love for fantasy and historical medieval stories started from a young age. I remember the first time I ever saw Sleeping Beauty and I was completely entranced.
When I first saw the trailer for the movie, I was excited. And now with the second one with the song from Lana Del Rey “Once Upon A Dream,” I think its safe to say that I have a new song that I will be obsessing over and to listen to while I write. The tone of it is so perfect for writing something dark and sinister.
I have often wanted to write an alternative version of “Sleeping Beauty”. Maybe now is the time. With this film coming out there will perhaps be a new enlightened interest in the tale that I have always adored.
My girl crush for Lana Del Rey continues. I wouldn’t try to stop her if she tried to canoodle me. Just sayin…… as long as she sang to me while she did it. 😉
