Two Posters For Maleficent Released

Posted by March 10, 2014 Comment

Disney have released two new posters for their Sleeping Beauty redo, Maleficent, one for the US and one for the UK, and they’re visually similar and yet pretty different at the same time.

Here is the US version, which features Angelina Jolie and her horns and her cheekbones all by her lonesome:

And for the UK version, she’s joined by Elle Fanning aka Sleeping Beauty, as well as the three fairies/pixies:

The UK version also cuts off Maleficent’s horns and altogether looks much less menacing, more fun and family-friendly, doesn’t it? If you had shown me these two posters and asked which belonged to which country, I probably would have guessed backwards. Interesting.

Maleficent releases on May 30th.
