Yesterday Disney announced that they had officially begun production on the fairy-tale spin Maleficent, and offered the first photo of Angelina Jolie in the role of the villainous sorceress. Now, we’ve got a whole gallery of photos from the set, which includes Jolie leading a herd of cows and rams Moisés-style.

The Robert Stromberg-directed fantasy also stars Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.

This movie is described as the untold story of Disney’s most beloved villain Maleficent from the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty. The film reveals the events that hardened her heart and drove her to curse the baby Aurora.

It seems like it’s becoming more and more popular to tell the “untold” story of the villains and witches we hated so much growing up. Most recently we got Queen Ravenna’s side of things in Snow White and the Huntsman. But Maleficent probably won’t go as dark as that, will it?

Regardless of how dark this movie gets, Jolie looks as stunning as ever. She’s just that kind of woman. Her look is pretty scary, but it also feels like a cross between Dumbledore and Loki, don’t you think? Check out the set photos below:

Maleficent hits theaters in 2D and 3D on March 14, 2013.
