    Almost every single Disney movie is based off a previous story.

    The visuals on the new Alice look SUPERB. And I bet the dragon will too- and this is coming from a hand drawn fan boy....

    I don't know about this. It would be real interesting if Burton took on a Wizard of Oz remake. Just saying...

    ok i didn't fully understand i saw maleficent i thought sleeping beauty (the good side) and thought tim burton was just remaking i was gonna say noooo way! cause i think tim burton is a little creepy for my taste, but the only reason i don't mind him remaking alice is because i thought alice was scary enough for me. but if he's doing the evil side then sure go ahead, just don't mess with aurora or prince phillip

    Having scored a hit with "Alice in Wonderland," Disney and screenwriter Linda Woolverton are teaming to bring to the big screen "Maleficent," a live-action take on the evil queen in the 1959 animated classic "Sleeping Beauty."

    "Maleficent" might reunite Woolverton with Tim Burton; it's one of a handful of projects the filmmaker is circling. His interest in the character was piqued in the summer when he was in post on "Alice," and the studio and Burton's camp have been trying to keep a lid on the project, though the Web site Ain't It Cool News mentioned Burton's interest in January.

    No deal has been made with Burton, and the hiring of Woolverton is the first concrete step forward in its development.
    It is unclear just how dark and edgy Disney -- which had no comment on the project -- wants to make "Maleficent." The dragon scenes in the 1959 feature, for example, are notable for their intensity. But if any filmmaker has a successful track record of making the dark and weird work for families, it's Burton.

    CAA-repped Woolverton has a long history with Disney, and is best known for having written on the 1991's "Beauty and the Beast" and 1994's "The Lion King."

    With "Maleficent," the postmodern take on "Sleeping Beauty," gaining momentum at Disney, there's also a star who could be surging with it: Angelina Jolie.

    Earlier this week, the news broke that Disney had hired its longtime collaborator Linda Woolverton ("Beauty and the Beast," "The Lion King") to work on the screenplay for the live-action take on the 50-year-old hit. (Maleficent is the evil fairy godmother in the Disney film; this story would be told, "Wicked"-like, from her perspective.)

    Both Tim Burton and Angelina Jolie had last spring been rumored to join the project, which Disney has been kicking around for a while as a way to mine its library, among other things. Burton's involvement remains unclear as he contemplates several projects. But sources say that, as of the last few weeks, Jolie is keen on the film and would like to sign on to play the titular villain.

    There's no deal (or, for that matter, script) yet. And it's unclear if Jolie's involvement would be conditional on Burton moving forward with it too. But it's nonetheless notable that Jolie -- who has no new movie after shooting the international thriller "The Tourist" -- is actively engaging with the material and could, according to sources, very well star in the film when all is said and done.

    A Disney spokesman this week said the company would not comment on anything "Maleficent"-related. Jolie manager Geyer Kosinski could not be reached for comment Thursday.

    Hope Angelina does it.

    She's an amazing actress! The female Depp imo.

    Meh. Tim Burton films are a dime a dozen. Once you've seen one goofy reincarnation made by him. You've seen them all. I'll pass.

    You're thinking of Angela Lansbury.
