Angelina plays Maleficent, "the mistress of all evil," who was of course featured in the animated Disney classic Sleeping Beauty. This film will tell the story of Sleeping Beauty from her perspective and will reveal "the events that hardened her heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora," according to a press release.
