Ain't It Cool News is reporting that Alice in Wonderland director Tim Burton might be adapting another classic tale soon, but this time from the point of view of the villain.

The site says that Burton is interested in making a live action feature based on Maleficent from Disney's 1959 adaptation of the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. Burton's Dark Shadows is "stumbling," according to AICN, so Maleficent could possibly be his next project.
Thoughts?

I'm not bothered that Burton is messing with the Disney classics. Alice in Wonderland look's amazing, and god only knows how good this one will be :D He's not messing anything up by doing this. (at least for me)

Most interesting to focus on the villain's story for a change. Great potential, I smell. Let's see where it's taken.

If and when that happens. You will see me in the movie theatre watching it. :p
I like Tim Burton and Disney Movies + Maleficent is an awesome villian. So I can't wait.

And this gives me a reason to watch Sleep Beauty again. :D

Burton's dark style+Maleficent's story= EPIC! :cln: I hope they don't cast his wife to be her, but I'm sure he will.

Beh....no ideas Tim?
He should work on something more original,because with Alice I think it's enough.

Yup. I do like her, it's just that I'd prefer he cast somebody new. Besides the typical Johnny Depp, HBC, etc. But I wouldn't have a fit if he did, I'd still see it.

No, no, NO. Do not mess with one of the scariest villains in animated history. Make your own version, and do it from that villians perspective, but not Maleficent from to 1959 Disney film.

LEAVE MALEFICENT ALONE!!!

You cannot use Chris Crocker in this argument because Maleficent isn't "human". :P

I don't think Maleficent needs a movie. She has a game already... <_<

Alice in Wonderland isn't property of Disney though, it's based on Lewis Carroll's work so he had a lot more room to maneuver there.

But Maleficent, I think she was an invention of Disney? Well... In any case I totally trust Tim Burton! :D She was a pretty cool villain as it is, I just hope he doesn't soften her too much or make her a victim. :pi:

Let's hope her origin is way awesome. This is gonna be ****ing epic.

Where the hell is Nate?! He'd be really screaming right now! :p

Or you could just play Kingdom Hearts. lol! xDMaleficent in KH is just lame with a capital 'L'. Her voice actress doesn't have such authority and fierceness in her voice like the original has. Plus her animation looks stiff and bad.

I know that, I was talking about him bringing Maleficent (from sleeping beauty) to the big screen wouldn't be a bad thing to me. If he does so he's "messing with a disney classic" not a bad thing though. That's what I meant :whi: I'd love to see Ursula get her own film!

THIS THIS THIS THIS!

Seriously, I love Tim Burton and his films. But no way in hell do I want him to touch one of Disney's best villians. Part of Maleficents charm is she has no backstory and she's just evil. Hello? She put a curse on a baby because she wasn't invited to the party! She doesn't need any backstory!:hea:
Maleficent in KH is just lame with a capital 'L'. Her voice actress doesn't have such authority and fierceness in her voice like the original has. Plus her animation looks stiff and bad.
Not really, she stays true to the character Disney made. The voice actress sounds identical to the one from the film (trust me, I've watched the film a million times). The animations aren't stiff, it's a PS2 game. What do you expect motion capture?

Where the hell is Nate?! He'd be really screaming right now! :p

Yeah! Screaming with anger!
