Angelina Jolie Talks Maleficent at D23 Expo

Angelina Jolie made a surprise appearance at the D23 Expo to discuss her upcoming film, Maleficent. The film will tell the story of Sleeping Beauty from Maleficent's perspective.

Angelina says, "Every since I was a little girl Maleficent was always my favorite. No surprise. I was terrified of her but I was so drawn to her and I wanted to know more about her. I wanted to know what she was like and who she was. She had this elegance and grace and yet she was so cruel. She was just wonderfully deliciously cruel."

Angelina also says little kids were terrified of her on the set. She says one little kid said, "Mommy, please tell the mean witch to stop talking to me."

The film is set for a July 2, 2014 release. Angelina wore all black to the D23 Expo. Take a look:
