LOS ANGELES – If you’re mosting likely to have a legendary very first interaction in life, it may also remain in one of the most ideal Disney nature setup with a rushing royal prince proposing.
That’s where Elle Fanning, 21, discovered herself capturing “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil,” the follow up that begins with developed Aurora being stunned in her fairy-filled Moors kingdom with a marital relationship proposition from Prince Phillip (Harris Dickinson).
“So that was my first ‘I do’ moment. I haven’t been engaged in real life or onscreen,” states Fanning, that confesses the “Maleficent” follow up (in movie theaters Friday) has actually established the proposition bar impossibly high. “Harris is the perfect prince. And we wanted to make it as authentic and magical a fairy-tale proposal as possible. We wanted to bring the happiness and joy of it.”

Sure, there were multiple takes of the scene. And when Aurora speaks to fairies, they were added later through CGI (“Sometimes you feel a little crazy talking to nothing, but it’s my job”). But the nature-filled set was very there as well as really alive for the proposal.
“The set was huge and built of real grass, real flowers and even real trees. Everything,” Fanning says. The climate had to be maintained for temperature as well as humidity, and stagehands had to water the plants during breaks. “So I did feel it, especially with the smells of nature. Even the river was realistic.”
Then there was the silk tulle dress, with hand-embroidered layers in baby blue, pink and lavender, “so that depending on the light, you might see a different color,” costume designer Ellen Mirojnick states. Fanning also wore a wreath with real flowers on her head as well as held the ensemble together with a daisy chain belt.
“The entire overdress was hand embroidered one leaf at a time, in a way only fairies can make it,” Mirojnick says. “It was important to have the most magical feel. Aurora is Queen of the Moors. These are robes of her queendom.”
The scene is crucial. When Fanning signed on for the first “Maleficent,” she was only 14, playing the goddaughter of the titular dark fairy played by Angelina Jolie. Now Aurora is grown as well as making decisions on her own, as established immediately with her quick yes to her prince.
“This is Aurora’s introduction,” Fanning says. “If you don’t believe the romance and love Aurora and the prince have for each other, then you don’t believe their journey.”
Maleficent, as the trailer shows, isn’t pleased her goddaughter is getting married, especially to the son of Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer), who becomes a blood rival. The affairs of the kingdom go south as war breaks out between Maleficent’s fairy kingdom and humans.
It all puts a crimp in the wedding plans. But the fight for motherly affection between Ingrith and Maleficent leads to three beautiful potential wedding dresses. The one bestowed by Maleficent is made of layered chiffon, covered with flowers fashioned from laser-cut feathers.
Scenes where Aurora tries on this gown were shot outdoors amid muddy surroundings. Fanning spent her downtime in the relative safety of a stable to protect the gown.
“So I’d stand alone in this horse barn,” Fanning states. “But I was so happy in there, because I was wearing the most beautiful dress.”
