I’ll always have a warm place in my heart for Disney classics. So when Hollywood decides to remake them with live actors, I get pretty pumped. (Unless they go the dark route like Johnny Depp’s Alice In Wonderland.) Next up on the big screen? Sleeping Beauty.

20 Best & Worst Looks At The Met Ball

Renamed Maleficent after the villain, the film will star Angelina Jolie as the title character and Elle Fanning as Aurora, the sleeping beauty.

To be honest, we’re a little taken back with Fanning’s casting. We admit she looks perfect but maybe a little…young. Yes, Aurora is only supposed to be 16 and Fanning is 14, so a little makeup should add a few years.

However, Disney’s Aurora seemed much more mature than her years, i.e. falling in love and getting engaged. Now a days, it seems a little creepy for a young girl to be getting hitched. But I guess this all boils down to…who is going to play Prince Philip?

Do you think Elle Fanning is the right choice for Aurora?
