Disney has released a new Maleficent poster and what a poster it is.Prominently displayed is Angelina Jolie in her black outfit with prominent horns, her pouty lips enhanced by the red lipstick and her left hand over her scepter.
This poster may eliminate criticism from naysayers of Jolie as the Sleeping Beauty villain.
The original Maleficent was animated by Disney animator Mark Davis and was based off of the appearance of the actress Eleanor Audley. Audley would voice the character in the 1959 Sleeping Beauty film after she previously voiced Lady Tremaine, Cinderella’s wicked stepmother, in Cinderella (1950).
Disney’s Maleficent will be in theatres May 30, 2014.
