This post is all about Maleficent, the self proclaimed Mistress of All Evil which is now main character in an epic Disney movie premiering today, 30th of May 2014.
For those of you not familiar with Maleficent, she is the chief villain – the wicked and thirteenth fairy goodmother – in the 1959 movie Sleeping Beauty. When she as the only one of the fairy goodmothers not gets invited to the christening of Princess Aurora, Maleficent turn up only to give her gift: a spell which says Aurora will die at the age of 16 after pricking her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel. Thanks to one of the other goodmothers, Aurora only falls asleep but can only be awakened by a kiss from her one true love.
Until now, we don’t know much about Maleficent and why she is the only goodmother not welcomed to Auroras christening. It seems Disney is about to reveal the full story of Maleficent and why she becomes wicked, dark, evil and have a raven named Diablo. Angelina Jolie is the perfect actress casted for portraying the Queen of Evil. We’ll come back to that later in this post. In one of the released teaser trailers (which gave us goose bumps!), Maleficent unfolds her epic presence in her own forest kingdom, when she comes home to sit on her lonesome throne. Check it out here (and you should, because both the music and the scenery is pretty darn Black Metal):
By now, you probably agree with us when we say we’re really stunned by the aesthetics of the movie and the movie art. Just look at these pictures:

And last but not least, Angelina Jolie on the blue(!) carpet, which just proved our statement regarding her being perfect for the role as Maleficent:
