Hollywood A-lister Angelina Jolie is expected to be among the stars on the red carpet today for the premiere of Disney film Maleficent.

The Tomb Raider actor and Oscar winner takes on the title role in the family fantasy.

According to the IMDb website, the film tells the tale of a vindictive fairy who is driven to curse an infant princess before realising the child may be the only one who can restore peace.

The movie also features US child star Elle Fanning, and British actor Juno Temple - the daughter of director Julien Temple.

Jolie, Fanning and Sam Riley - who played the part of Ian Curtis in the critically acclaimed Joy Division biopic Control - are among Maleficent's stars expected to grace the red carpet at Kensington Palace in London today.

The film is due to be released later this month.
