India Eisley Cast As Young Angelina Jolie In The New Disney Movie, Maleficent
With her dark hair, porcelain skin and full lips, we’ve always thought Amy Juergens’ younger sis on The Secret Life of the American Teenager India Eisley looked just like a younger version of Angelina Jolie. Well, it seems we weren’t the only ones that’ve noticed her similarities to the award-winning sex symbol – she’s been cast as young Angelina in the upcoming Disney film, Maleficent.
The Sleeping Beauty reboot is still in the early stages of casting, but both India and Angelina are confirmed to take on the title role of the villainous Queen.
“It sounds really crazy to say that there will be something that’s good for young girls in this, because it sounds like you’re saying they should be a villain,” Angelina told Entertainment Weekly. “[Maleficent] is actually a great person. But she’s not perfect. She’s far from perfect.”
Will Maleficent really rock the ridiculous horned headpiece that she does in the original Sleeping Beauty? Of course!
“The horns are the horns — you can’t deny them. You have to have horns,” said Angelina.
Do you think India looks like a younger Angelina? Are you excited to the ABC Family star take on a darker role?
