Lord knows that Disney needs a big hitter next year, given the disaster that was The Lone Ranger which grossed $260 million worldwide against an estimated $220 million production budget plus an additional $150 million marketing budget.

Speaking at the Disney D23 Expo 2013, Jolie said: "We felt it was very important to get it right and we think we did. The nice thing about joining the Disney family is that we've all been fans since we've been kids...and as a mother there is something very nice knowing you can take your kids to a Disney film and you know it's got something good for them in it...it's not going to hurt them.
"When I got the chance to play her I was very excited but very nervous."
Maleficent is set for release on May 30, 2014. No doubt the DVD and Blu-Ray will be out for Christmas. Kerching.
