Disney has released another full trailer for Angelina Jolie's Maleficient. It's called "Legacy," and it includes some fun new footage. The movie was directed by Robert Stromberg, and it looks beautifully dark. I don't know if you remember, but the original animated film was actually nightmarish. Most of the old Disney films were! They don't make them like that anymore.
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.
The film also stars Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Miranda Richardson, and Imelda Staunton. It will be released in theaters on May 30th.
