Jolie, Marvel superheroes bewitch Disney expo
ANAHEIM, California (AP) - Angelina Jolie cast a spell on the crowd at the D23 Expo.
The star of the upcoming film Maleficent appeared on stage at the Disney extravaganza for a Saturday presentation promoting the company's upcoming assortment of live-action films.
"Since I was a little girl, Maleficent was always my favourite," Jolie told the crowd of 4,000 fans about her role as a real-life rendition of the Sleeping Beauty villainess. "I was terrified of her, but I was so drawn to her. I wanted to know more about her."
Jolie said her daughter, Vivienne, who turned 5 years old last month, was cast in the film as a young version of Princess Aurora, mostly because she was the only child who wasn't afraid of Jolie in her horned attire on the set.
