You guys. Remember that first look we got of Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, like, a billion years ago? Well, the first poster of Maleficent is here, and it is jaw-dropping. Seriously. Look at that thing. LOOK AT IT. Who else wants a pair of crazy yellow-green contacts and a leather headdress in their wardrobe, stat? I feel like she’s staring into the deep, dark depths of my soul. For reals.
The only thing that would make me more excited about this movie right now would be a look at the rest of the cast. I mean, seriously—Elle Fanning as Aurora? Miranda Richardson as the Queen? Peter Capaldi, AKA the 12th Doctor, as the King? Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton, and Lesley Manville as the fairies? Vivienne Jolie-Pitt in her debut role as Young Aurora? What’s not to love?
Sadly, we still have a little ways to go before we get to see the whole thing in all its glory; the movie isn’t due out until May 30, 2014. But good gravy—I don’t know about you, Bettys, but I can’t wait!
Now excuse us while we go relive some of our favorite fairy tale villainess memories. And also rewatch “Spell Block Tango.” And, y’know, spending the rest of the day geeking out over all things Disney. Squee!
UPDATE: There’s a trailer now! Here, check it out:
I’m not sure how I feel about Elle’s questionable accent, but hot damn, does the rest of it look amazing!
