Disney has just revealed the first photo of Angelina Jolie starring in ‘Maleficient,’ of course playing the lead role of the Mistress of All Evil. The film is being directed by Robert Stromberg (Avatar, Alice in Wonderland) and also stars Sharlto Copley (“District 9”), Elle Fanning (‘Super 8′), Sam Riley (‘On the Road’) and many others.
‘Maleficient is the untold story of Disney’s most beloved villain, Maleficent, from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” This film will reveal the events that hardened her heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora (Fanning). The 3D movie isn’t hitting theatres until March, 2014 so this is a very early preview at what Jolie will look like. I thought she’d be great in this role when I first heard about it, but after seeing the photo now I’m even more certain. She literally looks like the human version of the cartoon or the pictures in the storybook. This will be amazing.
