I’m sure we’re all familiar with the old Disney classic of Sleeping Beauty. I’m sure I’ve seen it hundreds of times. But this is a new take on the tale — actually starting apparently well before the classic tale begins exploring how Meleficent became evil.
I’ll tell you, in the teaser trailer, and now in this trailer, it sure seems like Angeline Jolie is the perfect actress to play Maleficent. I’m kind of looking forward to seeing if this film is any good.
The untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman with stunning black wings, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army of humans 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 king of the humans 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 to Maleficent’s true happiness as well
