Angelina Jolie let the Maleficent cat out of the proverbial bag when she told the news that she’ll be playing this famous villain in a Disney movie. This will be this talent’s next acting project.
While out and about in Germany at the Berlin International Film Festival, promoting her film Land of Blood and Honey (which Jolie directed), the star talked with The Hollywood Reporter, announcing that she will take on the Sleeping Beauty role.
This casting information came in online via Contact Music, who quoted Angelina Jolie. She said, “I haven’t acted in two years… The next thing I am looking at is a Disney movie.”
A Disney movie indeed. One that is a classic, and can only be enhanced by having this cutting edge talent takes on the bad girl role, a role that should be fun for Angie to grapple. This will also be a role for which her kids will enjoy since the Jolie-Pitt clan will likely be allowed to watch their mom on screen because the rating won’t amount to anything higher than a G.
And in this upcoming, G-rated film, Angelina Jolie will prove once again that she is a force to be reckoned with, whether as a video game adventurer called Lara Croft or as a villain called Maleficent in a movie made by the Mouse House.
That said, what do you think of this casting? Do you think Angelina Jolie can come across as evil enough without scaring all the little ones, including her own? Will you be going to see this new incarnation of the villain everyone loves to hate? Thoughts? Thanks.
