Walt Disney Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for their 2014’s Maleficent which is based on La Belle au bois dormant by Charles Perrault, Little Briar Rose by The Brothers Grimm, and Sleeping Beauty by Clyde Geronimi, Les Clark, Eric Larson, and Wolfgang Reitherman. The film is directed by Robert Stromberg and stars Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Brenton Thwaites, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Miranda Richardson, and Imelda Staunton. Maleficent is scheduled to hit theaters beginning on May 30, 2014.
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.
