Who wasn't absolutely petrified of the devil-horned Maleficent and her creepy bird in Sleeping Beauty when they were a kid? She even calls herself the "Mistress of All Evil" and is cruel enough to curse an infant so that she'd prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die. How twisted can ya get? She's an iconic Disney villain, so everyone who's grown up watching Sleepy Beauty is probably pretty excited that they're devoting a film to this menacing witch. Starring Angelina Jolie, who can pull off those horns perfectly (quite a difficult feat for us normal folk, I'd imagine), the first trailer for Maleficent was released today.
Hey, this villain's-point-of-view twist on a fairy tale worked well for Wicked, and this is Angelina's first time back onscreen since December 2010, when she starred in The Tourist. She'd make sure her big debut after a years-long hiatus would be a good one, right? From what we see of the trailer, I'd say she made an excellent choice.
