The latest trailer for Disney’s big summer tale, Maleficent is now posted online. The film is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty,” revealing the events that hardened her heart.
The film centers on a beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent, who 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.
The film is voiced and stars Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie, along with Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple, Lesley Manville.
Maleficent opens in theaters on May 30, 2014.
