Donning horns, yellowed eyes and blood red lipstick, Angelina Jolie looks every bit the (wonderful!) evil sorceress depicted in Disney's 1959 animated feature Sleeping Beauty.
In this updated version, the focus switches to the events that hardened Maleficent's heart, leading her to curse the baby Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), played by Elle Fanning.
This Wicked-esque vision of the classic tale began filming in London on June 13.
Maleficent – in 3D – is scheduled to hit theaters March 14, 2014.
