Maleficent movie props and Princess Aurora's cottage bedroom set on display...

In Disney's live-action Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie in the titular role, the story of Sleeping Beauty is retold from the perspective of the iconic fairytale villain. Here is a selection of authentic screen-used props from the fantasy film, including 'Princess Aurora's' cottage bedroom set, on display at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on June 3, 2014.

This bedroom set is from the cottage where the baby Aurora is sent with the three pixies, 'Knotgrass', 'Thistlewit' and 'Flittle', in disguise to hide from Maleficent and her curse and here she grows into a teenager watched over by her 'Fairy Godmother', Maleficent.

Meanwhile that is the spinning wheel with the spindle on which she pricks her finger which sends the Princess into her death-like sleep before her sixteenth birthday.

In this origin story we learn that humans are the aggressors, like 'King Henry', who attacks The Moors, the land of the magical creatures and home of Maleficent.

King Henry is played by Kenneth Cranham and this is the Royal Sceptre he sports in the movie.

One of my favourite props on display from the movie was this red sculpture of a castle from the Royal banquet, which is pretty cool to see up close, and makes you realize how much detail goes into creating this illusion of an imaginary world on the big screen.
