'Tsum Tsum' from Disney JapanEarlier this year Late last year, Disney Store Japan significantly raised the kawaii-ness bar when they introduced ‘Tsum Tsum’ to the market. Often likened to bits of sushi by admirers, the stackable chibi-inspired plush (available in three different sizes) bring a whole new form to Disney favorites. Since launch, the collection has grown to include collections of its own based on films such as Alice in Wonderland, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio and more. Most recently, Disney Store released an entire Easter collection featuring the Disney characters sporting bunny ears as well as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. The collection has been so well received, that it also inspired a free-to-play mobile app matching game for Apple iOS and Android devices.

How Special Effects Make-up Transformed Angelina Jolie Into ‘Maleficent’

Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) Ph: Film Still ©Disney Enterprises, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

By now it should come as no surprise that the appearance of the titular character in Maleficent takes her cues from the villain in the Disney animated classic, Sleeping Beauty. Yet for all the similarities the ‘two’ characters share, there were challenges and decisions made when bringing her to life that affected her appearance.

Arguably the most glaring difference would be Maleficent’s skin tone. Whereas Disney Legend Marc Davis imagined her flesh to be decidedly green, the character portrayed by Angelina Jolie takes on a far more pale complexion. Rick Baker, the legendary special effects makeup artist, was responsible for Maleficent’s appearance and explains that the skin color decision was made to keep Maleficent to appear more ‘relatable’ and not ‘too creature-like,’ emphasizing the intent to keep Maleficent ‘pretty and attractive.’

FIRST LOOK: Pax and Zahara Jolie-Pitt in ‘Maleficent’

Pax and Zahara Jolie-Pitt in 'Maleficent' © DisneyWell, technically it’s more of a second look. When we shared two dozen newly released hi-res stills from Disney’s Maleficent (May 30, 2014) yesterday, we also inadvertently also gave a glimpse of Jolie-Pitt family members Pax and Zahara in their uncredited roles.

Seen here as participants in the coronation scene as mama Maleficent briskly passes by, the pair portray a prince and princess escorted by their ‘mothers’ who — as it turns out — are their real-life tutors, according to an interview Jolie recently gave to Entertainment Weekly.
