First Look at Angelina Jolie as Maleficent: Why Is She Wearing Leather Pants on Her Head?
Look, look, y’all. Angelina Jolie appears to have a pair of short, leather britches on her head in our first look at her in the role of Maleficent, the villain in the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale. The movie itself — another “edgy,” “dark,” and “twisted” take on a old tale — will star Jolie, Elle Fanning as a young princess, Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton, and Lesley Manville as pixie fairies, and Sharlto Copley as a half-human, half-fairy bastard son of the human king. Veteran visual effects artist Robert Stromberg will direct.
