New ‘Maleficent’ Poster Fresh From Disney

maleficent-poster_1000

I’m still humming ‘Let It Go’ from ‘Frozen,’ but Disney is quick to conjure up new films to entice you. So, bust out your vintage ‘Sleeping Beauty‘ movie to get your kids excited about ‘Maleficent.’ (At the very least, they will appreciate the stunning leap in cartoon image quality over the years!)

To this day, Sleeping Beauty is my favorite Disney Princess and Maleficent is my preferred villain. In this reboot of the classic tale, audiences will get the details as to how the be-horned queen became the Mistress of All Evil. In the 1959 cartoon version, she pops up uninvited to Princess Aurora’s royal christening and curses the infant Princess to “prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die” before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday.

Here’s a Fun Fact: Maleficent was voiced by Eleanor Audley in 1959, who was also the voice of Cinderella’s wicked stepmother!

What To Expect When You're Expecting - The Movie

There is one movie that we here at Celeb Baby Laundry are really looking forward to. It’s called What To Expect When You’re Expecting. It’s based on the popular book by Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel. It opens on May 11 but the first posters have been released and they’re lots of fun. It’s great seeing Cameron Diaz with a baby bump! They also features some quotes from the movie like ‘If I knew I’d have a rack like this, I would’ve gotten knocked up years ago.’

The movie follows the stories of five women dealing with the impending arrival of their little bundles of joy. So there’s someone we can all identify with in one way or another. The five women are played by Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick and Elizabeth Banks. Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock, Chace Crawford and Matthew Morrison are also in the film. It’s a pretty impressive cast!

Each character has a different story to tell. Cameron is Jules – a gym junkie/fitness guru, Brooklyn is the blonde trophy wife and expecting an heir, Anna is Rosie a food truck chef while Elizabeth is a baby incubator and writer. J-Lo plays Holly who’s not expecting herself , but preparing to adopt a baby from abroad after having trouble conceiving . Just like in real life, each woman has a unique way of coping (or not coping) with the changes they’re going through.

So I reckon this is one movie all Moms-to-be, Moms, Dads-to-be and Dads will want to see when it hits the big screen.
