By  | 

It’s not an easy task to bring a beloved cartoon to real life, but when it works, the results are certainly magical. Take for instance the upcoming live-action tale of Disney villain Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie.

We were first introduced to this world of characters in Sleeping Beauty, but now we’ll not only get to see them in REAL life, but we’ll get to know more about Maleficent before Sleeping Beauty ever showed up. This certainly isn’t the first time a cartoon turned live-action movie had people talking. So, in honour of Maleficent’s release on May 30, we thought we’d round up eight of the best live-action movies based on cartoons for your viewing pleasure. Check them out below by clicking through the gallery!

This post written in partnership with Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie, in theatres May 30 and is part of Teen’s Ultimate Villainess Week.
