Forget about those controversy-laden princesses, the online buzz at the moment is for that striking Disney villainess Maleficent.
The vindictive, evil sorceress from Sleeping Beauty takes the spotlight in the upcoming film Maleficent, with Hollywood A-lister Angelina Jolie stepping into the character's dramatic horned headpiece and perfectly draping cloak.
The film doesn't open until May 30, but Disney is offering a taste with the above teaser trailer, in which the sunny princess (Elle Fanning) seeks to lure Maleficent from the forest's shadows.
With that unmistakable silhouette and her gorgeously icy and menacing demeanour, Jolie is delicious in her brief appearance, from those blazing eyes and panther-like circling to the ominously arch tone in her voice.
What do you think folks? Does this look like a promising antihero tale from Disney?
