Actress Angeline Jolie has teamed up with fashion designer Stella McCartney to create a children's clothing collection based on her upcoming movie, Maleficent. 

Jolie stars in the Disney film which is based on the villain from the 1959 classic, Sleeping Beauty, and the inspired kids fashion range will be available around the world in McCartney stores and in Disney retail stores from April.

The range will feature footwear and eight clothing styles, including princess dresses and T-shirts, and is aimed at children from the ages of four to 14.

A portion of the money raised will be donated to SOS Children's Villages, a charity which provides homes for youngsters in need.

Speaking to wwd.com about the collection McCartney said: "I've always been a huge fan of Disney growing up, as was my mother, and I grew up watching all the films like most kids did. 

"When the opportunity presented itself and I was invited by Angelina Jolie to visit the film set, I jumped at the chance."
