Angelina Jolie Has a Big Ass Hat

Of all the Disney movie villains, Maleficent has to rank among the top.  She’s absolutely terrifying.  But until now, we haven’t heard her side of the story.  That all changes next May when Angelina Jolie brushes off her Lara Croft accent and steps into the role in a live action retelling of Sleeping Beauty called Maleficent.

Seeing her in costume, it’s uncanny.  She’s absolutely perfect for the role!  She looks like she stepped right out of animation cell. I also appreciate that they didn’t go all titacular with the costume design as designers often do to sexify their evil sorceresses.  Casting Elle Fanning as Aurora is pretty inspired and I think the two will play very well off of each other.  I think they’ll be able to elevate this from just a CG spectacle.

I can’t believe I’m actually looking forward to a non-Pixar Disney film.
