Burton Bows Out

The former Disney animator and character designer won't be doing the live-action sequel/prequel to Sleeping Beauty.

Tim Burton has moved off of Maleficent ... [but] Disney is not about to put Maleficent into a suspended-animation sleep. The studio is now on the hunt for a new director. ...

Too bad. I think it would have been kicky to see Mr. B.'s take on the story. Would he have followed Eyvind E.'s design lead or taken the picture elsewhere in terms of visuals? Alas, we'll never know. But Ms. Woolverton is (apparently) still on the case.
