Conceptual Artwork ©Disney 2014

Gushing over the concept art for Maleficent over and over? Guilty. The official Evil is the New Black blog, which gave us our first doses of the concept art (see the growing gallery embedded below), has now posted yet another image seen here which features Maleficent as she approaches King Stefan’s castle. Perhaps most interesting, however, is that the castle itself appears to take some direction from another castle: Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland, which was so-named not because of its resemblance to any structure in the 1959 animated film, but simply to promote the film (well before it opened, no less).
