Disney Channel Debuts An Official Sneak Peek Of Maleficent, Starring Angelina Jolie

Walt Disney Pictures has come to offer some reprieve for one of the greatest villain of all time. In their upcoming feature-length presentation the studio is aiming for what Wicked has done for Broadway, to show the audience that no one is intrinsically evil and sometime do the things they do just because of the present and past circumstances.


This Robert Stromberg-directed movie with a twist to the famous Sleeping Beauty movie turns the spotlight to the titular character Maleficent. Angelina Jolie fills in the shoe of the villainess, and she will be joined by Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville. The movie was based on the screenplay written by Linda Woolverton.

Watch the new revealing sneak peek of Maleficent.


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.
