Disney is dropping a new trailer tomorrow for Maleficent, and they've released this quick clip as a teaser. Looks like we're going to get some really serious detail on the origins of one of the most revered Disney villains ever. They also released their third "Legacy" trailer for the film, showing the new footage in the context of the original animated classic. Check out both trailers below!
“Maleficent” is 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.
Maleficent is directed by Robert Stromberg, and stars Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Miranda Richardson and Imelda Staunton. In theaters May 30, 2014.
