As darkness fell over the “Kingdom” tonight, Maleficent made a surprise appearance in Fantasyland to greet a few lucky guests. Until beauty sleeps, there is no rest for the wicked!
Disney’s “Maleficent” opens in theaters May 30.


  • I would prefer a more true to character Maleficient 🙂

  • awesome! wish we were still in Disney for this event – maybe next year!!!Disney sure is spectacular in every way – never stop imagineering please!!

  • She bears a striking resemblance to Angelina. And she’s very good at playing the part.
    And Nicole…the next time Disney releases Sleeping Beauty from the Vault, it’ll be a sure bet that you’ll see a Green-faced Maleficent in the parks to promote it.

  • Where can I get those fabulous horns?

  • Yes, it is supposed to be promoting Jolie-ficent. (Rather like when the live-action 101 Dalmatians came out, and we had both the animated and Glenn Close versions of Cruella DeVille at the parks.)
    Come to mention it, was the animated Maleficent out that night as well with the villains, or was she “green” with envy? 😉

  • Danielle I would have to disagree with ya. I would have to say she looks Fantasmic!!! Yes I agree with Valerie Maleficent from the new movie coming out.

  • I think she is supposed to be the Angelina Jolie-movie version?

  • Nope, and I think she looks quite fantastic!!

  • Is anyone else bothering by the fact that she is not green? -sigh-
