The Disney Channel is added an extra little bit of something wicked to its upcoming original TV movie, Descendants.

With all the hype for its new live-action Maleficent movie, starring Angelina Jolie, Disney is taking the bull by the horns and adapting yet another version of the villain. And it looks like Brad Pitt's better half and Kristin Chenoweth share some mysterious quality that makes them both perfect for the role.

As Maleficent in the contemporary live-action adventure comedy, Chenoweth will butt horns with her onscreen daughter Mal, played by Dove Cameron from Disney Channel show Liv and Maddie.

Chenoweth herself played Glinda in Broadway's Wicked, so the thespian certainly knows her witches. That said, when I see Ange dressed as Maleficent - in all her horned glory - she always looks looks like she's ready to occupy the nightmares of little children's dreams. Kristin Chenoweth? Not so much. So I'm sure looking forward to seeing how they preen her.

Are you already under Kristin Chenoweth's spell? Drop your comments below!

Don't forget - Maleficent arrives in theaters May 30, 2014, with Descendants set for a 2015 release.
