Angelina Jolie proves that she is a dark, fire-breathing force to be reckoned with in the eerie new trailer for Disney’s ‘Maleficent.’ Watch the just-released clip right here and let us know what you think!
Featuring an extra fierce Angelina Jolie, Disney’s latest trailer for Maleficent is a roaring ride into the world of Sleeping Beauty — the part of the world that we’ve never seen before, until now. The highly anticipated fantasy flick is coming to theaters on May 30 — we can’t wait!
‘Maleficent’ Trailer: Angelina Jolie & Elle Fanning Are Absolutely Epic
The new trailer starts off much like the previous one, with the haunting first notes of Lana Del Rey‘s rendition of Disney’s original 1959 Sleeping Beauty theme song, “Once Upon A Dream.”
It then progresses to give us more insight into the twisted fairy tale, showing Angelina’s Maleficent casting a spell on Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning) that will lure the unwitting beauty into her infamous sleep when she turns 16.
This new two-minute thrill ride takes us deep into Maleficent’s world, from her totally creepy cackle, to the unveiling of her enormous black-as-night wings, to her awesome transformation into a fire-breathing dragon that wreaks havoc on Princess Aurora’s court.
Also interesting is Maleficent’s mysterious relationship with Aurora — does she love her or does she hate her?
We’ll have to see the film to find out, but this totally awesome trailer already gives us the feeling that there is more to the evil queen than meets the eye.
Cast of Disney’s ‘Maleficent’ Includes Dakota’s Little Sister, Elle Fanning
Aside from our eagerness to watch the gorgeous Angelina in action, we also can’t wait for Dakota Fanning‘s little sister Elle! Everyone is anticipating an amazing performance from the 15-year-old actress. And considering her past roles, albeit small, in films such as We Bought A Zoo and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – not to mention her brilliance in this latest Maleficent trailer — we couldn’t agree more that Elle is going to smash it!
We’re also excited about the film debut of Angelina’s daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt as a young Aurora! How sweet that mother and six-year-old daughter will share the screen. We have a feeling it won’t be the last time.
