We've seen the trailers the stills before but MY GOD! Every time I see Angelina Jolie as Maleficent I'm blown away. This time, she looks looks like she's ready to occupy the nightmares of little children's dreams in fourteen new high-res stills from Disney's upcoming movie.
Take a look at our selection of the best, here, and try not to shudder with delighted fear!
Hell hath no fury like a woman horned - and these images more than prove that! But, this is the 21st Century, guys, and Disney's revamped, sympathetic origin story Maleficent shows a more two-dimensional look at Angelina Jolie as the wicked witch...
You thought that the wicked witch who curses Sleeping Beauty to prick her finger on a spindle and die after she is turned away from a royal christening is just the "queen of evil"? Think again... Brad Pitt's better half as the wicked witch will be a more sympathetic character than the original figure: her heart is hardened by the ruthless destruction of her peaceful forest by a marauding army, driving her to seek revenge. She later sees that her persecution of the invading king's daughter (Elle Fanning) may be the wrong move, as the child offers her best chance of a truce between kingdoms.
