Angelina Jolie Really Looks The Part Of Maleficent In New Teaser Trailer Released By Disney

Every villain (or villainess, for that matter) has a back story. They are not always outright evil, but some aspect in their lives may have just urged them to be so... The same principle applies with Maleficent, the villain of the classic animated 1959 movie, Sleeping Beauty. And the upcoming Disney movie may very well tell her story why Maleficent became what she would most known to be -- one of the greatest villains...


Maleficent is directed by Robert Stromberg based on the screenplay written by Linda Woolverton. The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville. Jolie is also one of the executive producers, together with Don Hahn, Matt Smith, Palak Patel and Sarah Bradshaw.

Check out the new trailer of Disney's Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie.


From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.

Here are some stills from the trailer of Disney's Maleficent.

Walt Disney's Maleficent will be released in theaters on May 30, 2014.
