Meet the new Sleeping BeautyElle Fanning! The actress was tapped to play Princess Aurora in Maleficent, THR reports. In Disney’s 1959 Sleeping Beauty, Princess Aurora is 16, making her two years older than Fanning. Despite the small age difference, we think the actress is tough enough to take on Maleficent, who will be played by Angelina Jolie. The movie is set to hit theaters March 2014, and there's no word yet on who will play the handsome prince who awakens Sleeping Beauty with a kiss.
