She's played her share of action heroines, but in her new Disney movie, Angelina Jolie is revealing her dark side in a bid to take out the princess Sleeping Beauty. Here's your first look at Jolie as Maleficent.


Jolie stars as the villain from the classic Disney tale Sleeping Beauty, a wicked sorceress who places a curse on Princess Aurora, played by Elle Fanning. The movie also marks Jolie's daughter Vivienne's acting debut.  The 5-year-old plays a young Aurora in the film. Told with a haunting twist, this live-action version tells the story of how the sweet, young Maleficent changed into a vengeful sorceress.

The movie is due May 30, 2014.  It will be the Oscar-winner's first onscreen role since 2010's The Tourist, and the first since having an elective double mastectomy to prevent her chances of contracting breast cancer.
