Los Angeles: British actress Ella Purnell has been tapped to replace India Eisley in Angelina Jolie`s upcoming Disney film `Maleficent`.

Eisley was set to play a younger version of Jolie`s evil title character in the live-action film, but was recently replaced after producers had to re-shoot the opening scenes, according to The Wrap.

The movie, which tells the story of the villainess` beginnings and why she cursed Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty, was originally filmed last summer and is set for release next year in May.
