Angelina Jolie takes to the skies in a new trailer for Maleficent, in which she plays the titular role of the evil, beautiful sorceress and Sleeping Beauty nemesis.

The live-action film adaptation of the Disney 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty hits theaters in May 2014, and Jolie's performance is one you won't want to miss ...

We see Maleficent soar through the sky, and swiftly lash her wings at people below as she makes her way to the ground. She is a force to be reckoned with.

Yet in the latest trailer, Maleficent explains why she doesn't fly like the rest of the fairies anymore. "I had wings once. They were strong," she says.

"They were stolen from me."

By whom? The trailer hints at that, while showing us more of Sharlto Copley as well as the aforementioned Sleeping Beauty who will drift off on her 16th birthday.  

A previous Maleficent trailer showed her terrorizing Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora, and featured a rendition of "Once Upon a Dream" by Lana Del Rey.

Angelina's real-life daughter Vivienne Pitt, 5, is set to appear as young Aurora. Check out a photo of the two of them after the jump, as well as more trailers:

The first promotional photo from Maleficent has been released, and it features Angelina Jolie as the titular villain alongside none other than her own daughter.

Her real-life daughter, that is. Vivienne Jolie-Pitt also stars!

Jolie-Pitt stars as the younger version of Elle Fanning's character, Aurora (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty). As we all know, she's the nemesis of Jolie's Maleficent.

Ironic for little Viv, but doesn't she look the part?!

We first saw young Jolie-Pitt in the Maleficent trailer and to hear her mom tell it, she definitely got the part because of her mom. But not the way that sounds.

“The other three and four-year-old [actors] wouldn’t come near me," Angelina joked. "It had to be a child that liked me and wasn’t afraid of my horns, eyes and claws."

"So it had to be Viv."

On Saturday night in Los Angeles, Miley Cyrus kissed Katy Perry.

It was a memorable moment, and the Twitterverse is still abuzz over the celebrity girl-on-girl lip-lock, but it certainly wasn't the first of its kind.

Heck, it wasn't even the first of its kind involving Miley Cyrus, who famously made out with a dancer during a Britney Spears show in Las Vegas late last year.

Indeed, same-sex star smooches have been making headlines for well over a decade now, with Madonna the reigning Queen of this headline-making move.

But it's spread to serious thespians as well, such as Sandra Bullock and... Meryl Streep?!? Click through some of the most famous examples of public girl-on-girl action now:

The latest trailer for Maleficent has been released, and for fans of the animated classic Sleeping Beauty, the May 30 release date can't come soon enough.

Angelina Jolie is electrifying as the title character in this never-before-told origins story of one of the great film villains - Disney's greatest, as the trailer boasts.

An Academy Award winner and one of the planet's most famous actresses, it's not like you'd expect less from Jolie ... but she was born to play this character.

Watch the Maleficent trailer below and you'll see what we mean, even from this very brief tease of what will certainly be one of 2014's box office sensations:

Fun fact: Angelina's daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt stars as young Aurora, Maleficent's adversary, and is the spitting image of Elle Fanning's character.

Viv will even have some lines in the film, according to reports, while older siblings Pax, 9, and Zahara, 8, will also have cameo appearances.

Angelina has joked that her little girl was the best choice for the part largely because any other four-year-old would likely be terrified of her costume.

Almost overlooked in the awesomeness that is the first Maleficent trailer, which dropped yesterday? Angelina Jolie's daughter Vivienne's big screen debut!

It was rumored months ago that Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, who turned five this year, would play a small role. Turns out that role is a young Princess Aurora:

Romping through the fields in pursuit of a butterfly, without a care in the world, Vivienne appears in the first scene of the first Maleficent trailer.

Later, we see the older version of character played by Elle Fanning (below).

Vivienne will even have some lines in the film, according to reports, while her older siblings Pax, 9, and Zahara, 8, will also have cameo appearances.

Jolie also said this summer that she won the part because she wasn't scared of her mother's makeup, which is not a small factor. She's intense!

"Vivienne was the only 4-year-old who wouldn't scream," Jolie joked.

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."

It's too soon to tell, but Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, the famed Sleeping Beauty villain, already looks like that rare, perfect pairing of actor and role.

The film's first poster has been released, and leaves little doubt who the star is: Jolie, as the title character who curses the young Princess Aurora:

The actress is mesmerizing in the horned headdress that her evil, green-eyed, green-faced character was famous for in the 1959 animated classic.

Maleficent opens May 30, 2014, and co-stars Elle Fanning as Aurora.

It isn't a simple live-action Sleeping Beauty remake, though. Jolie's wicked sorceress is front and center in what sounds like an origins story of sorts.

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

Are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt secretly married? Again?!?

Probably not, just like the last time you heard that rumor. But the buzz is ... buzzing again after the beauty was spotted with a new rock on her ring finger!

The Maleficent actress has been wearing a wedding ring - of Pitt’s great-grandmother - since April. It is said to symbolize “their impending marriage."

But a new ring, and a thicker, lighter band no less, has not been seen in photos before Sunday, when she flashed it with Brad on Sydney's Bondi Beach.

Could Brangelina have pulled off a secret wedding ceremony?

Reports are surfacing that Angelina Jolie wants another baby - so badly that after undergoing a double mastectomy, she is willing to risk her life to do so.

Following her double mastectomy in February, which she underwent after learning she’s a carrier for the faulty BRCA1 gene, she vowed to go even further.

Jolie said she would soon need another operation to remove her ovaries to further reduce her cancer risk, though it's not clear when she'll have that.

Family friend Marie Miles reveals that Angelina may be delaying that second surgery because she wants to have another baby with fiancé Brad Pitt.

Just like with the highest paid actors, Forbes has released their list of the highest paid actresses.

Angelina Jolie comes in on top of all actresses after bringing home a whopping $33 million.

Unlike Robert Downey Jr., top earner amongst the men, it isn't as obvious how Jolie was able to still be on top despite not having acted in a major hit in years. 

This past year though, she not only took on next summer's Malificent, but she also wrote and directed In the Land of Blood and Honey. Apparently when your name is Angelina Jolie, you can take a year "off" to deal with health issues and still make more than any other actress in Hollywood.
