Angelina Jolie as Madame Leota by ARTIST-SRF Angelina Jolie as Madame Leota by ARTIST-SRF
Welcome, Foolish Mortals.  Did you know that Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, Lady Tremaine from Cinderella and Madame Leota were played by the same person?  That's right, they were all voiced by actress Eleanor Audley.  Except Madame Leota's face was actually played by Disney Imagineer, Leota Tombs.  Now you may be asking, what does this have to do with Angelina Jolie?  Well, I've seen her in Maleficent, and despite the negative reviews it's been getting, I actually enjoyed the film.  And no one could play a better live action version of Maleficent than Jolie herself.  So if Gullimero Del Toro were to direct The Haunted Mansion remake, he should cast Angelina Jolie as Leota.  I think she could play it scarier than Jennifer Tilly ever did.

I dunno. Angelina seems scary enough with Brad Pitt. I don't think this'll help her case.

That seems more fitting. As long as Jennifer Tilly of whatever the heck her first name is isn't the casting choice.

The one problem I have with this casting is they'd have to give Leota a sympathetic backstory, one where her being sealed into her crystal ball is not karmic punishment like it was in the first comics (she murdered Gracey's fiancee by luring her into a gator swamp), because Angelina Jolie doesn't play villains.

Her performance wasn't the issue, it's the screenplay and the contractual demands Jolie has.

Have you seen Maleficent? they totally made her the "victim." Mainly by making everyone else either a fool or a jerk

I don't know. She had to fight just to wear the costume she wore in Malificent because Disney wanted her in something more "modern" and "sexy."

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one.  But I kind of wished that the good fairies weren't CG at all, and I wish that Stefan was a little sensitive to his wife's passing .

I also wish that it was Maleficent who turned into a dragon in the live action version, but if they did that, Disney would probably have to make her die a villain again.

Yeah it was the raven guy(whose name was hard to remember) who turned into a dragon this time.

Not bad, I really love it! Actually it's a pretty nice concept, but as for Angelina being chosen as Madame Leota, I think I prefer Jennifer Tilly.

Don't mention it, and well, maybe because I've seen enough movies of her to know that she can be incredibly scary when she wants to, while Angelina, no matter how much she tries, she can't really convince me that she's evil (although I agree that Tilly's performance as Madame Leota was a bit comical, but then again the movie was a family comedy, I do believe that with a more serious movie, she could portray her really well).

Last night... total disappointment. And it's not Angelina's fault, it's the story itself. Trying to give her a tragic origin is just plain redundant, especially because she's pure evil. It's a film not worthy to watch in 3D, and in some ways, an offense to Disney fans, especially the purists. If I were you, I would wait to download it from the net.
