New ‘Maleficent’ trailer reveals more details, the fairies and Angelina Jolie as ‘evil’

A new trailer for the Angelina Jolie-starring Maleficent has been released. The new footage ties directly to the Disney classic animated feature Sleeping Beauty.

angelina-jolie-stars-in-new-teaser-poster-for-maleficentMaleficent finds the King’s palace for the baby princess’s christening; the prince (Brenton Thwaites) approaching a bed where the enchanted Aurora (Elle Fanning) lies sleeping.

Fans get the first good look at the CGI fairies as Maleficent exacts revenge for her lack of party invitation by cursing the newborn with death-by-spindle.

The high point of this new peek at the film is Angelina Jolie: her lips, the cheeks and the creepy horns which appear to be part of her actual skull.

“There is an evil in this world,” the dark fairy declares. “And I cannot keep you from it.”

The film feels like a combination of  Oz The Great And Powerful and Jack the Giant Slayer.

Directed by Robert Stromberg and co-starring Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), Peter Capaldi (the new Doctor in Doctor Who) and Sam Riley

Maleficent will be released on May 30, 2014.
