Hell hath no fury like a woman horned, but Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning, the stars of the upcoming Maleficent, appeared at a press conference in Paris recently to promote the film, looking more than happy to attend! Disney just released photos from the event online.

After a brief swipe at directing with biographical drama Unbroken, Oscar-winning actress Jolie is back making tentpole movies with her turn in the upcoming Sleeping Beauty-themed flick.

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...

Jolie's Maleficent 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. Excited?

Maleficent arrives in theaters May 30, 2014.
