Disney’s providing a behind-the-scenes look at the new action-adventure film Maleficent with a featurette focusing on Angelina Jolie’s lead character. “We all know the story Sleeping Beauty, so we know Maleficent. We know what happened at that christening,” says Jolie, “But we’ve never known what happened before.”
Directed by Robert Stromberg, Maleficent will arrive in theaters on May 30, 2014.
In addition to the new video, Disney also announced a new “Embrace Your Inner Evil” sweepstakes in which fans can enter for a shot at winning a trip to the film’s world premiere. Disney’s asking fans to recreate Maleficent’s laugh and then post the video using the #MaleficentLaughSweeps tag on Instagram. For more details and the official rules, visit the film’s official Facebook page.
Maleficent explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic Sleeping Beauty and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.
