 makes one hellluva witch!

The actress looks gorgeously wicked in Disney's latest "Maleficent" poster, which was unveiled on Monday.

In the artwork, the villainess stands out against the white backdrop, sporting an elaborate black headpiece. Her pale skin, red lips and intense green eyes starkly contrast her dark wardrobe.
 
Makeup artist Rick Baker used prosthetics to achieve Maleficent's razor-sharp cheekbones.

"Angie liked the way Lady Gaga had her makeup done with the triangular forms under the skin," he told Entertainment Weekly. "We had to make them very light and removable." Baker also used a prosthetic nose and ears to complete Jolie's scary transformation.

The Oscar-winner admits that playing one of the most storied characters is more than just getting the right look. 

"Maleficent was always so elegant. She was always in control. And to play her was difficult," the brunette beauty says. "I worked on my voice a lot. She's bigger than me. She's on a different level of performance than I have ever done. She's very still. She's very sure of her voice. I kept playing with these different types of British voices, making my voice darker and scarier."

The film, which will be launching into theaters on May 30, also stars Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Brenton Thwaites, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville.
