The latest trailer for Disney's Maleficent is called "Dream," and it features a lot of beautifully captivating new footage from the Robert Stromberg-directed film. It also features a haunting rendition of the song "Once Upon a Dream" from the original Sleeping Beauty animated movie. It really adds a touch of eerie awesomeness to the trailer.
The film has an amazing cast that includes Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Miranda Richardson, and Imelda Staunton. I really like everything that I've seen for this movie so far, so my expectations for it are growing. I think it will live up to them though.
Maleficent is 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.
The movie will be released in theaters May 30th, 2014.
