One clip from ‘Maleficent’ has been released, showing Angelina Jolie in the title role crashing the christening of Princess Aurora, and now two more clips have been unveiled.
The first shows Maleficent returning to her forest home, presumably after losing her wings to King Stefan as one of her forest friends gasps “Your wings…!” and earlier clips revealed that Maleficent seemingly lost her powerful wings in a conflict of some kind.
Check it out below:
The second trailer shows Maleficent on horseback, seemingly to intercept Aurora from pricking her finger on the spindle that Maleficent herself cursed her to. Apparently, the dark fairy had a change of heart after interacting with the young princess and wished to reverse her own spell, but was unable to get to the castle in time.
“Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.”
The movie opens on May 30th and also stars Elle Fanning,Sharlto Copley, Brenton Thwaites, Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton and Lesley Manville. It is directed by Robert Stromberg.
