Disney’s Maleficent is certainly a great idea, but Disney knows its still got to convince a few people about taking one of its greatest classics – Sleeping Beauty – turning its world live-action and telling things from the point of view of the earlier movie’s villain.
Following yesterday’s great be-winged banner comes a brand new trailer, which you can watch right here.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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.’
It’s due in cinemas this May.
