Who is Disney’s most evil villain? I’m sure I don’t know (Ursala comes to mind though), but Maleficent is probably way up there. And certainly, even just looking at her silhouette brings a chill to one’s spine.
That being said, I’m not sure if I needed a live action version of Maleficent on the big screen. But we’re going to get one anyway. And it looks like Angelina Jolie is up to the task. Granted we didn’t get much of a look at her, but she certainly seems to fit the role.
Here’s the synopsis and trailer:
“Maleficent,” the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty,” reveals the events that hardened Maleficent’s heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora.
