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.

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.”
