We recently saw Charlize Theron’s dark turn as Ravenna the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Huntsman, and now Angelina Jolie is taking on a villainous role in another adaptation of a classic fairy tale—the lead role as Maleficent in the upcoming eponymous film by Disney, about the Sleeping Beauty antagonist.

Other co-stars include Sharlto Copley (District 9), Sam Riley (On the Road), Imelda Staunton (Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), Miranda Richardson (Sleepy Hollow), Juno Temple (Atonement) and Lesley Manville (Secrets & Lies).
