Based on the recently released teaser trailer, we’ve got high hopes for Angelina Jolie‘s turn as Maleficent. So evil. So glamorous. It’s a dream come true for every kid who was equal parts terrified and captivated by the Sleeping Beauty sorceress. And now we’ve got a hankering for some more animated baddie updates. Here are five more villains Disney should consider reinventing in live-action.
With Disney Theatricals’ stage production of The Little Mermaid, we’ve already had a taste of a live-action Ursula. Plus, there’s a juicy backstory that got the Sea Witch from King Triton’s palace into her creepy underwater cave and we wouldn’t mind seeing that play out in an Ursula-centric prequel.
Highly underrated and forever quotable, The Emperor’s New Groove had a flawless foe in Yzma. But it would be near impossible to find an actress worthy of succeeding the peerless Eartha Kitt, whose playful performance made the whole thing sing.
A more demented Miss Hannigan type, The Rescuers‘ Madam Medusa would be a prime part for any comedienne to sink her teeth into.
