Maleficent Trailer Released: First Look at Angelina Jolie as Disney Villain!

by at . Comments

The first Maleficent trailer has been released, and while it only offers a brief glimpse of Angelina Jolie as the title character, she makes the most of it.

As we saw in the Maleficent poster, which also debuted this week, she is clearly the perfect fit for the live-action version of the Sleeping Beauty villain.

In the below teaser, Elle Fanning's Aurora speaks to the mysterious sorceress, who reveals her piercing green eyes (and signature horns) at the end ...

Maleficent opens May 30, 2014, and is not your run-of-the-mill live-action remake of Sleeping Beauty. Jolie and her character's origin are the focus.

The official plot synopsis reads: “A beautiful and pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom."

"One day, 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."

This is the 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.”
