Thanks to EW we have a couple new photos to share with you of Angelina Jolie as the terrifying Disney villain Maleficent. I seriously think that she is one of the most nightmarish villains that Disney has ever brought to life. It's pretty cool that she's actually getting her own movie. Above you'll find the magazine cover with the character on it, and below you'll find her with a young Aurora, who is played by Jolie's real daughter.
When talking about playing the villain, Jolie said, “The exercise wasn’t how can we have fun with a villain? It was: What turns people evil and vile and aggressive and cruel? What could have possibly happened to her?”
I guess we'll find out when the movie is released on May 30th. The film looks visually stunning, and it also stars Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
The movie tells the "untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty. A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well."
