Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne must be seeing their mom in a different light these days.

Donning horns, yellowed eyes and blood red lipstick, Angelina Jolie looks every bit the evil sorceress depicted in Disney’s 1959 animated feature Sleeping Beauty.

In this updated version, the focus switches to the events that hardened Maleficent’s heart, leading her to curse the baby Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), played by Elle Fanning.

Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton and Sam Riley also star in this Wicked-like take on the classic fairy tale, which began filming in London on June 13 and is expected to run through the summer.
