First look: Angelina Jolie as Maleficent

Angelina Jolie looks perfect for the role of Maleficent: the magnificently evil villain from Snow White.

I don't think Ange would take any offence at my saying that she appears to have been born for this role. Her potential for villainy has been apparent since forever.

Also, we love the potential for a new take on the story here. Maleficent is, in many ways, the most interesting character in the tale. What made her so evil? How did she come to such a state of rage and bitterness that she cursed poor old Aurora?

Next up - 'Fang' - retelling the Lion King story (with Jeremy Irons again).

Yes please understand the differance between the Disney films. This is Sleeping Beauty. If you had done your research you would know that.
