Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne must be seeing their mom in a different light these days.
Donning horns, yellowed eyes and blood red lipstick, Angelina Jolie looks every bit the evil sorceress depicted in Disney's 1959 animated feature Sleeping Beauty.
In this updated version, the focus switches to the events that hardened Maleficent's heart, leading her to curse the baby Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), played by Elle Fanning.
Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton and Sam Riley also star in this Wicked-like take on the classic fairy tale, which began filming in London on June 13 and is expected to run through the summer.

It's a bad, bad, bad, bad, world.
Angelina Jolie will star as Maleficent, the evil queen of Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty, in a live-action update of the 1959 animated-feature version, this time told from the perspective of the original mean girl. It is set to be released March 14, 2014, it was announced Monday.
"It's not anti-princess," Jolie told Entertainment Weekly about the film, Maleficent. "But it's the first time they're looking at this epic woman ... I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn't mean she can't have other [warmer] qualities."
She added, "It's a really great script. I'm having a lot of fun. I've already got my horns fitted. My kids are very happy."
