Art showcase: Maleficent

Maleficent, by Nebezial

Because Maleficent, that’s why. Apparently there’s going to be a Maleficent movie, and it’s generating some fanart like this. Except Angelina Jolie is playing her. I can’t think of Angelina Jolie as anything but Tomb Raider, even now …

  1. Have you looked at the pictures online of Angelina as Maleficent? If they are any indication I think she’s going to be awesome in the role.

    You know, there is a part of me that wants to rebel against all this retelling of classic fairy tales, a part of me that wants to scream at Hollywood for turning to existing stories instead of putting out more original work (remaking Spiderman? Totall Recall? really?), but the fact is I adored Snow White and the Huntsman and I am finding myself really excited about Maleficent. Maybe because the original fairy tales were so much darker than the Disney-fied versions that have permeated our culture, and even if these aren’t true to the originals at least they are capturing that original darkness.

  2. I too have my skepticism about Jolie in this role, but I had the same feeling when Heath Ledger played the Joker in The Dark Knight. When I saw the movie in theater, I nearly fell out of my seat in surprise at how awesome he was. After that, I became a lot more reluctant to let my first impressions dictate my expectations.

  3. oh mi gosh… that dragon… so… detailed. Wow. That must have taken some time. Nice contrast of a dark sophisticated lady with this raw prehistoric power. Hadn’t even heard about the movie idea. Interesting. Hope that the story can be done well. At least the fanart is awesome.
