First Set Photos of Angelina Jolie as MALEFICENT

     June 20, 2012


A mere 24 hours after the first official photo of Angelina Jolie as Disney villainess Maleficent first came to light, a few shots from the film’s set have surfaced. In them we see Jolie, in her sorceress costume, chatting with crew members and milling around with some of her horned brethren.

Disney has described the film as “the untold story of Disney’s most beloved villain, Maleficent, from the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty. The film reveals the events that hardened her heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora.” For more on the project as well as the pics, hit the jump.

In speaking with EW Jolie says of her character:

“I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other [warmer] qualities. You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is.”

Jolie went on to say:

“It sounds really crazy to say that there will be something that’s good for young girls in this, because it sounds like you’re saying they should be a villain. [Maleficent] is actually a great person. But she’s not perfect. She’s far from perfect.”

As for those horns:

“The horns are the horns — you can’t deny them. You have to have horns.”

Maleficent began filming in England last week and is due out in 3D on March 14, 2014 (so, quite a long way off).  Elle Fanning will star as the unlucky child Aurora, and joins a stellar cast that includes Sharlto Copley (District 9), Sam Riley (On the Road), Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), Miranda Richardson (Sleepy Hollow), Juno Temple (Atonement) and Lesley Manville (Secrets & Lies).

    I really hope that is here look before she becomes malificient during the beginning in her origin story before seeing her in her most powerful form cuz that wardrobe is a disappointment from the first photo that was released yesterday.

    So I’m guessing this is a sort of Disney-fied “Wicked”? Those who’ve read the novel, not just seen the musical, will know what I mean.

So when you put a curse or spell you cause demons because you are contacting the spirit of this world fortune tellers physics and vodoo dolls and trying to contact the dead your going to see a ghost and demon of that person and in order for you to have it to leave burn these things crystal balls dream Makers, and when the dead are dead there brain and everything is dead.I am, not a witch am do thankful I am not.
