‘Maleficent’ — WATCH Angelina Jolie In New Trailer

We’ve already seen Angelina Jolie get her wings in an earlier Maleficent trailer, but a brand new clip shows where the story all started.

“There was a legend of a dark and powerful fairy and her curse on a sleeping beauty,” the trailer begins, zooming through the cartoon facade from the original 1959 Disney movie. “You know the tale. Do you want to know the truth?”

Sleeping Beauty (Elle) appears out of the nostalgic animation, prompting the evil fairy (Angelina) to come out of the woods.

“I know you’re out there. Don’t be afraid,” Sleeping Beauty says to which Maleficent responds, “I am not afraid.”

As the story goes (and previous trailers have shown), the princess is unaware that Maleficent is out to get her, but Angelina stampedes throughout and finally, screams from the middle of green fire, “This curse will last tip the end of time. No power on earth can change it!”

Maleficent hits theaters on May 30.
