Sporting magnificent and intimidating black wings, Angelina Jolie soars in Maleficent, the upcoming live-action origin story of the deliciously cruel villain from Disney's animated classic Sleeping Beauty. In this new teaser (out a day before the full trailer is unleashed), the deceptively kind character explains why she no longer flies. Judging from the footage shown, perhaps that's a good thing...
Maleficent explores the untold story of Disney's most iconic villain, tracing the betrayal that ultimately turned her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and to protect her moors, she places an irrevocable curse upon the king's newborn infant, Aurora, who grows to be caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy.
Also starring Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville, Maleficent opens in theaters on May 30.
