Kelton Cram, the conceptual artist on [The Amazing Spider-Man 2](movie:508593) has released his stunning concept art for the Disney flick [Maleficent](movie:39352). The stills include various takes Angelina Jolie's look along with the supporting cast.
Check them out below:
There's certainly some interesting and very off the wall concept art here, I think that the final Angelina Jolie design that they've settled on is the best. It's very simple and at least has a visual connection to th with witch from [Sleeping Beauty](movie:477084) that we can all remember.
Maleficent is currently on wide release.
Check out the synopsis below:
"“Maleficent” is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well."
What do you think folks, is it good that they've stuck to the original image of Maleficent or should they have pursued a new vision?
Maleficenet, old or new?
