When Disney announced Angelina Jolie was playing the title role in Maleficent, the "true story" of Sleeping Beauty playing the sympathy-card on the iconic villainess, what was there to argue? One might tire of that sub-genre within a genre (the revisionist fairy-tale). But the casting was aces.
Jolie always had an exotic look to her and she's been known for her eccentricities over the years (That blurry-line between sibling-love and incest with her brother, writing then-hubby Billy-Bob Thornton's name on a tee-shirt in her own blood, adopting kids by the truck-load with Brad Pitt, etc.) It was never hard to visualize her sporting the black dress and horns.
This morning, the studio has provided the world a first-look at her in character, and she looks exactly how you thought she would.
