Cinemagoers flocked to the theatres to feast their eyes upon the reimagining Walt Disney's 1959 animation 'Sleeping Beauty', which sees Jolie look as compelling as she does frightening when portraying the domineering cold-hearted Queen.

The fantasy depicts a prequel and "untold story" of one of Disney's most villainous characters ever, the 38 year-old actress brilliantly portrays how the Queen became wicked and the events that led her to cursing young Princess Aurora (played by Elle Fanning).
