See Angelina Jolie in her element as the Evil Witch in new Disney movie, Maleficent.

Disney has released the first picture of Jolie as the evil sorceress Maleficent in the updated film version of Disney's classic 1959 tale Sleeping Beauty.

Angelina Jolie's eyes take on an unnerving yellow hue to portray the Disney film's evil queen, Maleficent, in the first look at the star in character, above

The Oscar-winning star's depiction will reveal what turned the villain to the dark side and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora, aka Sleeping Beauty.
