Angelina Jolie shows off her mean streak in the first photo as Disney’s evil mistress “Maleficent.” Julia Roberts and Charlize Theron, evil queens in new Snow White films, look tame by comparison.
The movie also co-stars Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Miranda Richardson and Imelda Staunton.
Jolie’s character is from the classic fairy tale “La Belle au bois dormant” by Charles Perrault, otherwise known as “Sleeping Beauty.”

Disney made it into one of its iconic animated classics in 1959, and Maleficent was always considered it’s foremost villainess. She’s actually an evil fairy who curses the Queen’s newborn girl Aurora. She vows that Aurora will die before her 16th birthday when she pricks her finger on a spinning needle.
But another fairy is able to weaken the spell. Instead, Aurora will fall into a deep sleep.
She’ll only be able to waken after a kiss from her true love. The film, however, will focus more on the events that made Maleficent bitter and caused her to to curse Aurora.
