CANOGA PARK, Calif.—The sophomore release in Wicked Pictures' Wicked Fairy Tales line, Sleeping Beauty XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, arrives to retailers today.
Starring Wicked Girl Stormy Daniels as Maleficent and Anikka Albrite as the title character, Sleeping Beauty XXX is being released as a two-disc DVD set that includes both X-rated and non-sex versions of the movie.
“Stormy was terrifyingly good,” director Braun said. “Her screen presence, sexual charge and charisma pervade the movie and really set the dramatic tone for it, while Anikka brings an intensely nuanced performance to her character. Sleeping Beauty XXX has an even darker, sexier approach to the source material than the one I took with Snow White XXX, and I’m absolutely thrilled with the finished product.”
Daniels, who is an accomplished director herself and rarely works for other people, commented, “Getting to portray such an iconic character was definitely one of the coolest moments in my career. I’ve never desired to do a parody before, but Maleficent was just the role to make me eager to step into the genre. I’m very excited about this release ... so much so that I talked Axel into letting me keep the costume, which I plan to incorporate into a brand new feature dance show!”
The cast also includes Casey Calvert, Claire Robbins and Axel Braun Productions contract girl Riley Steele as the three fairies.
In promotion of the movie's release, Braun, Albrite and Steele will appear on the LA Talk Radio program "Inside the Industry" with host James Bartholet from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. PST this evening. "Inside the Industry" can be heard at www.latalkradio.com and www.insidetheindustry.net.
Braun will also be joined by award-winning adult actor Kurt Lockwood, who stars as Jack Bauer in the recently released 24 XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, along with AVN Award-winner Alektra Blue, who co-stars as beautiful but deadly super-villain Nina Myers. Listeners can call in at (323) 203-0815 to ask questions during the broadcast and join the conversation in the chat room at www.insidetheindustry.net.
