Disney First Look: Angelina Jolie As “Maleficent”

MaleficentStarring Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley and Elle Fanning, “Maleficent” is the untold story of Disney’s most iconicvillain 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.

MALEFICENT releases in theaters on May 30, 2014!
