The Kingdom Hearts 3 Rumor:

Although this is just a rumor for now, Kingdom Hearts 3 creative director and the production team of Maleficent have hinted that Angelina Jolie is both interested, and willing to work out a deal to voice Maleficent in Kingdom Hearts 3. Angelina Jolie is a huge video game fan, having portrayed Lara Croft in several Tomb Raider movies.
In an interview Angelina Jolie claimed that she used to enjoy killing Lara Croft when playing the Tomb Raider video game. The actress, who played the iconic character in 2001’s Tomb Raider movie and its sequel Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, said she liked the way Croft sounded when she died in the game.

She added, “I only eventually played the role because it’s about a very strong woman,” she said. “It was exposing, but in a way where I thought, ‘I really like what she represents as a woman’, and so if I’m exposed in that way it’s okay.”

She added: “When I agreed to play her, I didn’t realize how much of an icon she was. There are magazines on where she went to school, and the music she liked… it’s very bizarre!” Angelina Jolie voicing Maleficent in Kingdom Hearts 3 would definitely bring a bit more spark to the game. We have reached out to Square Enix to see if the rumor was indeed true or false, we will keep you updated as we get more information in.

    I would really rather she wouldn’t. We already have an established character in the Kingdom Hearts universe, changing the Maleficent we have now from the original Sleeping Beauty one to the new Angelina Jolie one would completely change her character. The one we have now is evil, while Jolie’s character isn’t.

      What if they went the middle ground route, had Maleficent go through a heel-face turn, and her resulting form made her look like a middle ground version of the two designs using the art style of Sora, Riku, etc?

    I would not buy the game if they reworked Maleficent to be the version from the new movie.

    They dont mean to use her version of the character, just her voice, because she did a much better job at voicing Maleficient than the actual voice actress.

    I actually watched both Maleficient and Sleeping Beauty back to back and then watched some Maleficient’s parts in Kingdom Hearts games and I must say that I was horrified by the work the voice actress did.

    Angelina Jolie’s voice suits the character much better, they don’t mean her looks.

    Jolie’s voice would be real great for the game if she was to do the voice acting. Though I doubt anyone would decided to change Maleficent’s model as well, a remodel wouldn’t be the end of the world (not desired but not the end of the world). Of course no one is suggesting they rework her model, at least I don’t think so…
