First Look At Angelina Jolie As Maleficent

Angelina Jolie has always looked a little like a cartoon character to me, so I was confident she’d make a good Maleficent. Disney have sent us this image of her in costume and make up, and I think my instincts were pretty good.

The film has just entered production, ahead of a release in March 2014. Lots of time for very involved post, and I do understand that the film features an awful lot of huge-scale FX set pieces.

Linda Woolverton‘s screenplay inverts the Sleeping Beauty story somewhat to give us the “evil” Maleficent’s perspective. I hope she’s still as much fun as when she was flat out wicked.
