Disney’s released a new look at Angelina Jolie getting all evil in Maleficent, the upcoming film that focuses on the Sleeping Beauty villain. The new trailer for the May 30, 2014 release shows off a little bit more of the relationship between Maleficent and Aurora (played by Elle Fanning). The new video also provides a glimpse at Maleficent’s evil powers.
 
Directed by Robert Stromberg, the cast also includes Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville.
 
The Plot:
 
From Disney comes Maleficent—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.
