If Harry Knowles at AICN is to be believed, Tim Burton isn't done playing around in the Disney playground just yet. While he's still putting the finishing touches on Alice in Wonderland, Burton is now said to be interested in tweaking Sleeping Beauty in a very Wicked-esque way. If you were one of the lucky ones to catch Wicked on Broadway, then you know that it tells the story of The Wizard of Oz from the point of view of the witches. Well, that's exactly what Burton supposedly wants to do with Sleeping Beauty – to tell the story from the point of view of one of Disney's greatest villains: Maleficent.
I think it is a good idea as long as he is not ruining the story and the the ideals that has made it remain a classic all these years.
Hmmm...It sounds like a really good idea. I like how Tim Burton's ideas takes him to wild places in the world of movies. This take on Sleeping Beauty really sounds promising because it's giving the audience a new take on an old story in a new world. However, some people don't like a change within an old, yet classic, story. I would probably like a movie that portrays the viewpoint of Maleficent because, most movies portray the bad guy as the antagonist and the good guy as the protaganist, but if the roles were reversed than you get a whole new world.
is this really a good thing? I like it better when we can use our imaginations with out a difinitive story prequel. I love Maleficent in her original artform/performance. Tim Burton is a Hoax! we have seen his vision of the world over and over again and not much changes except the circumstance. While it may be amusing, it doesn't really offer anything profound or emotionally stirring. Pee Wee's Big Adventure was a masterpiece! Let's just leave it at that!
