From Disney comes “Maleficent”—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. The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville. Maleficent is produced by »
(Cbr) Angelina Jolie is an intimidating force to be reckoned with, just on her own. Now add monstrous horns, a menacing stare and the powers of a sorceress into the equation; it’s no wonder that only one little girl on the planet was brave enough to face Jolie in "Maleficent": her own daughter. Jolie’s daughter Vivienne plays the young version of Princess Aurora in "Maleficent", and it’s not because Jolie and fiance Brad Pitt want to turn their child into an actor. “But the other 3- and 4-year-old performers wouldn’t come near me,” she tells Entertainment Weekly about her daughter’s casting. “It had to be a child that liked me and wasn’t afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws. So it had to be Viv.” Jolie further explained that "Maleficent" tells the “real story” of the iconic Disney villain, one »

Everybody loves a villain – especially one that is played by Angeline Jolie. This summer will see the Oscar winning actress front a film which is all about Sleeping Beauty’s nemesis in the highly anticpated Maleficent.
The trailer sent the internet world into meltdown, giving us glimpses of a spectacularly creepy Jolie, hiding in the woods. Jolie isn’t the only one of her family to make an appearance in the movie though as she is joined by daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt and her mother explained how her 4-year-old came to be cast as a young version of Princess Aurora:
The other 3- and 4-year-old [performers] wouldn’t come near me. It had to be a child that liked me and wasn’t afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws. So it had to be Viv.”

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. »

Entertainment Weekly magazine just unveiled the cover for its latest issue, giving us a look at Angelina Jolie as the title character in the upcoming "Sleeping Beauty" spin-off, called "Maleficent." In addition to the cover, the magazine also released a photo of Jolie with her 5-year-old daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, who co-stars in the movie. "We think it's fun for our kids to have cameos and join us on set, but not to be actors. That's not our goal for Brad and I at all," said Jolie. "But the other 3 and 4-year-old [performers] wouldn't come near me. It had to be a child that liked me and wasn't afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws. So it had to be Viv."

The new image ran as part of a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, in which Jolie describes the film as an exploration of the nature of evil… “The exercise wasn’t, ‘How can we have fun with a villain?’” Jolie says. “It was, ‘What turns people evil and vile and aggressive and cruel?
