Angelina Jolie Is Looking Forward To Her Role As Maleficent

Angelina Jolie dishes on her upcoming role as Maleficent.

Fairytale flicks are the hot thing in Hollywood right now from Snow White to Sleeping Beauty. Angelina is set to star in the latest one – a version of Sleeping Beauty, titled “Maleficent”. The mom of six explains that she’s not necessarily the villain.

“It’s not anti-princess, but it’s the first time they’re looking at this epic woman [in a different way]. I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other [warmer] qualities. You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is. It sounds really crazy to say that there will be something that’s good for young girls in this, because it sounds like you’re saying they should be a villain, [Maleficent] is actually a great person. But she’s not perfect. She’s far from perfect.”

Angelina says she loved the script right away and her kids are thrilled:

“It’s a really great script. I’m having a lot of fun. I’ve already got my horns fitted. My kids are very happy.”

Maleficent is set to start filming soon and will be out in theaters in 2013. Due out first are the two twists on Snow White: “Mirror Mirror” and “Snow White and the Huntsman“.
