Disney has just released the first teaser for “Maleficent”, the newest version of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale which features Angelina Jolie as the title antagonist, and Elle Fanning (Super 8, We Bought A Zoo) as the “Sleeping Beauty” princess.
Check it out below!
From Disney’s official synopsis:
“Maleficent is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classicSleeping 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.”
