Check Out The First Trailer For Maleficent, Starring Angelina Jolie

Submitted by on November 14, 2013 – 10:24 amNo Comment

The first trailer is here for Maleficent, the highly-anticipated Disney retelling of Sleeping Beauty. Based on the original fairy tale, as well as Disney’s 1959 animated classic, the movie stars Angelina Jolie as the titular iconic villain.

Maleficent focuses on the early life of the dark sorceress. According to the synopsis, Maleficent enjoys an idyllic childhood, until her kingdom is invaded. She defends it fiercely, but is betrayed. Seeking revenge, she casts a spell on Princess Aurora, aka the Briar Rose, aka Sleeping Beauty, who is the daughter of the king who ascends to the throne after the invader.

The trailer includes ominous shots of the spinning wheel spindle and of Aurora lying asleep. It also ends with Maleficent raising a barrier of thorns, perhaps to hide the sleeping princess.

At least some scenes of Maleficent are reportedly being reshot. Director Robert Stromberg is a two-time Oscar winner for production design, but this is his first time directing a feature-length film. The film is set for release on May 30, 2014.

What do you think of the trailer? Will you see Maleficent?
