Jolie is but the latest in a long line of actors who have tried their hand at bringing the menace of Disney's animated villains to life onscreen.
Below, we take a look back at our favorite live-action Disney baddies. Which is your favorite?
Dustin Hoffman: Captain Hook
Playing a villain is nearly always an occasion for hamming it up, and Hoffman has a whole hog's worth of fun turning the dreaded pirate Hook into a foppish, sneering dandy.
Alan Rickman: Sheriff of Nottingham
Movie: Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
Rickman's dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham injects a much-needed dose of levity to Kevin Costner's occasionally portentous Robin Hood. When he cancels Christmas, he's as cartoonish as any old wolf.
Glenn Close: Cruella De Vil
Movie: 101 Dalmations
From boiling bunnies to skinning puppies, Close's career has not been kind to cuddly animals.
Angelica Huston: Rodmilla the Wicked Stepmother
Movie: Ever After
In this naturalistic Cinderella adaptation, Huston brings just enough humanity to the evil stepmother role to make her verbal barbs sting even sharper.
Christopher Walken: Hessian the Headless Horseman
Movie: Sleepy Hollow
His IMDb quote page may be sparse, but Walken still steals this Tim Burton film with his wordless performance as the head-chopping Hessian.
Helena Bonham-Carter: The Red Queen
Movie: Alice in Wonderland
Though calling this a "live-action" performance might be a stretch, HBC's CGI Queen has the proportions and the petulance of an overgrown baby. With a noggin that big, no wonder she's obsessed with cutting them off.
Charlize Theron: Evil Queen Ravenna
Movie: Snow White and Huntsman
A year after Young Adult, Charlize Theron found a simpler way to ideal with aging: sucking the souls out of her kingdom's young women.
Julia Roberts: The Evil Queen
Movie: Mirror Mirror
The silliest performance on this list, Roberts plays Mirror Mirror's evil stepmother not as a super villain, but as a frustrated comedienne – the Elaine Benes of fairy land.
