What made Maleficent so damn evil? Well, the latest full-length trailer for Disney’s fantasy spectacle, starring Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie as the titular “Sleeping Beauty” villain, is suggesting it had something to do with the loss of her wings. Which was supposedly “stolen” by King Stefan (Sharlto Copley), and his actions appears to be the reason why Maleficent cursed his daughter, Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning), with a wicked spell that will transpire on the sunset of her 16th birthday — of course, Maleficent will tell her side of the story right before the young curious princess falls into a “sleep-like death!”
“There is evil in this world … hatred and revenge,” Maleficent warns Princess Aurora in the above clip. Little does she know that the wicked fairy was actually referring to herself.
Directed by Robert Stromberg, the award-winning production designer/ VFX artist of “Avatar” and “Alice in Wonderland,”
Whether in action movies or not, Angelina Jolie still kicks ass!
“Maleficent” will start spreading its wings on May 30th.
