Disney has two new clips out to tease the upcoming release of ‘Maleficent‘. This is their live action take on the retelling of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ with a focus on the origin of Maleficent herselt who is portrayed by Angelina Jolie’s (‘Salt’, ‘Wanted’) in the film. While I’m not usually one for Disney films (Marvel not included), I would be lying if I didn’t say that with each new clip that they release for this film it would really appear that this is the role Jolie was born to play. I have a feeling there is going to be a huge want for her to portray villains going forward in films after this was is released. At least I hope so!
First up we see a “Pretty Bird” and a chance to see Aurora and Diaval meet in the Moors:
In this clip, we see Princess Aurora discover tht Maleficent is the evil fairy that she has been warned about. A snippet of this clip has been seen in prior trailers but here is an extended version of the scene:
Now that you’ve seen the clips, here’s some behind the scenes footage as well!
What do you think of the latest footage from the film? Are you excited to see ‘Maleficent’ on the big screen? Do you think they are doing a proper take on the story that turns her so evil? Share your thoughts below!
Maleficent” is 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.
