With her demonic horns, glowing green eyes and vibrant red lips, Angelina Jolie will be playing the evil fairy Maleficent of the original film Sleeping Beauty.
Disney released the first images of Jolie as Maleficent as production began today for their March 14, 2014 release date.
Instead of focusing on the journey of the good princess Aurora, Burton takes a spin and rather focuses on the villainess.
“It’s not anti-princess, but it’s the first time they’re looking at this epic woman,” Jolie said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Despite it being a family movie, Maleficent is anything but pleasing for the audience. Her horns are made out of leather wrapped from her head and out. Surprisingly, this is almost a replica of the original evil fairy of the 1959 animated film.
Directed by former production designer Robert Stromberg (Avatar, Alice in Wonderland), Maleficent will also feature stars Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley and Miranda Richardson. Jolie will also be the executive producer of the film.
