Maleficent, along with her raven Diablo, needed more capable minions to help her with her deeds as she goes out to seek Princess Aurora! Rocket Raccoon and Groot found the perfect extra rolls more suitable for them with Walt Disney studios! Just to let you know, Rocket and Groot will not really appear in Maleficent, but there does seem to be some moving trees in the film, I saw the trailer and maybe they're relatives of Groot? Anyway, I like Maleficent as a villain so I wanted to draw her and also kind of make a sequel drawing to the one where Rocket didn't feel he fit in with Snow White!
Maleficent is set to appear in her own film titled "Maleficent" directed by Robert Stromberg on May 30, 2014 and Rocket Raccoon and Groot will appear in "Guardians of the Galaxy" directed by James Gunn on August 1, 2014!
