Hot on the heels of yesterday’s character poster release, we’ve got ahold of the first trailer for “Maleficent.” Angelina Jolie stars in this new-perspective retelling of Disney’s 1959 take on “Sleeping Beauty” based on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, in which the Mistress of All Evil places a slumbering curse on the beautiful Princess Aurora. What do we think? Will 135 minutes of Elle Fanning‘s grating faux-English accent effectively drive us insane?
The concept is simple: Disney princesses with beards. I have no idea why the resulting images are so funny/entertaining, but they totally are.

We are so, so, soooo excited that author, advice giver, general badass, and The Frisky staff’s literary life coach (Tiny Beautiful Things is pretty much our bible around here) Cheryl Strayed‘s memoir, Wild, is being adapted into a movie. Earlier today, the film’s producer and star, Reese Witherspoon, posted this photo of herself decked out in Cheryl’s hiking outfit and hoisting the famously giant backpack she carried on the Pacific Crest Trail. Reese really does resemble Cheryl here, doesn’t she? Can’t wait to see the adventure play out on the big screen. [Reese Witherspoon on Who Say]
