Actress Elle Fanning plays the Sleeping Beauty character Aurora in Walt Disney Pictures’ new movie “Maleficent.” She stars in the film alongside actress Angelina Jolie who plays the title role.

Elle was just spotted out to brunch with her parents. The trio dined in Los Angeles, California on June 6, 2014, and Elle sported an adorable princess-like style to the meal. Do you love her look?

Elle opened up to Reuters about the “Maleficent” movie being all about girl power!

She stands up for her home, she is protecting it from mankind as well… She is a powerful lady and she is definitely in charge. There is a prince, but she is definitely the heroine. It’s definitely girl power.

Elle also spoke about why Disney fans should see the movie if they haven’t checked it out in theaters yet – and she sure made a convincing argument!

All the questions you have in the original, this one answers those. You get to the back story, you get to see why she [Maleficent] became this way. I don’t think someone is just born evil. I think someone has to push them to be bad. That’s what I love about it.
