With shooting beginning last week on Maleficent, Walt Disney Pictures has released the first photo of Angelina Jolie as the eponymous villain.
Maleficent tells the untold story of, well, Maleficent, the villain from Sleeping Beauty. Audiences get a look at the events that turned her evil and caused her to curse Aurora.
Along with Jolie, the film will star Elle Fanning (Super 8), Sharito Copley, Sam Riley, Miranda Richardson, and Juno Temple. Oscar-winning production designer Robert Stromberg (Avatar) gets his directorial debut, with the script penned by The Lion King writer Linda Woolverton.
Maleficent is scheduled to hit theaters in 3D March 14, 2014.
