Could Angelina Jolie be any more perfect as Maleficent? We’re not trying to say the Angie’s evil (she’s not, right?), but boy, can the woman get in character. Disney released this first image of their upcoming live-action film, about the secret, untold story of Sleeping Beauty‘s “villain”, Maleficent. The titular role is played by the actress, and as you can see from the photograph above, it’s going to be a hell of badass part to portray. Those cheekbones seem to be inspired by Lady Gaga, though! Angie did say, “Wait until you see the horns” when asked about her character by EW, back in March.
Of her role walking the line between the sympathy vote and the villain tag , she also said, “It’s both. I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other [warmer] qualities. You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is.” Yep, that sounds like Angie alright. The film will only see the light in early 2014, sadly. It also stars he movie also stars Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville with Robert Stromberg making his directorial debut.
