#29: Eva Green as Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty
Sleeping Beauty’s antagonist, Maleficent, has already spawned a few spinoff movies – the most popular one featuring Angelina Jolie – but we think more could be done if the award-winning actress ever stepped down from the role. No one said the redemption of a Disney villain would be easy or short!
Having already starred in several Tim Burton films – who’s known for darker and bizarre interpretations of classic stories – Eva Green is well-established to play the role of Maleficent in a dark fantasy setting. She’s already worked with Disney through the 2019 retelling of Dumbo, which couldn’t hurt either.
