First trailer for Disney's Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning

As promised yesterday, the teaser trailer for MALEFICENT has been released online on the Facebook page for the film. It is a teaser, so the trailer isn't that long, but it does give us a decent look at Angelina Jolie as the iconic Disney villain.

"Don't be afraid."


"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."

Am I sold on MALEFICENT? No, but I wasn't that high on similar films like OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, and Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND either. I'm sure there are people that can't wait to see this, and Angelina Jolie will probably be a fantastic Maleficent, but I'm just not that excited for MALEFICENT. The teaser really didn't do too much for me, however a great full trailer could change my mind.

MALEFICENT will hit theaters on May 30th, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: MALEFICENT is Robert Stromberg's directing debut, but he did win two Oscars for "Best Art Direction" with his work on AVATAR and ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
