After getting a pretty good look at Angelina Jolie as Maleficent Yesterday, when the poster was released, we now have the full trailer. We can’t wait to see how director Robert Stromberg will re-imagine a terrifying green-skinned, horned, baby-targeting fairy as the heroine in the tale. This is of course the tale of 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.
Here’s the trailer:
