Without a doubt, one of the best actresses working today, we see the first glimpse of Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, the ultimate villain in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. The film is set for a 3D release on March 14, 2014. Let’s hope they move the date up!
This will be the two-time Academy Award winning production designer, Robert Stromberg’s (Avatar, Alice in Wonderland) directorial debut. Maleficent is written by Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King) and is produced by it’s leading star, Jolie, Don Hahn, Matt Smith and Palak Patel.
