Maleficent has added Juno Temple as one of three pixie fairies to star opposite Angelina Jolie in this fairy tale adventure.

The film follows the exploits of the infamous fairy witch that cursed Aurora (known to most as Sleeping Beauty) to a permanent slumber on her sixteenth birthday. The story explores why Maleficent has done this cruel deed, offering events from her perspective.

Elle Fanning has joined the film as Aurora, with Sharlto Copley playing a half-human, half-fairy bastard son of the king. Other cast members include Miranda Richardson, and Sam Riley.
