A new teaser trailer has been released for Disney's most iconic villain "Maleficent", starring the luminous and talented Angelina Jolie. The film attempts to show the other side of the classic "Sleeping Beauty" tale, showcasing the betrayal and origin of why Maleficent turned on the kingdom and princess.
Synopsis: From Disney comes "Maleficent"—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.
