Walt Disney Pictures has unveiled the first image of Angelina Jolie as Maleficent in their new live-action drama of the same name. And she looks suitably scary.

The film focuses on the untold story of the Disney villain, famous for her deliciously evil role in  1959’s Sleeping Beauty.

The movie is directed by  Oscar-winning production designer Robert Stromberg, making his directorial debut. Maleficent is written by Linda Woolverton who helped pen The Lion King and  Beauty and the Beast.

A starry cast joins Jolie with Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville all attached.

Maleficent will be released March 14th,  2014. So just a small wait till then!
