Sneak Peek at 'Maleficent'

– by Kellvin Chavez

maleficent- Walt Disney Pictures has released (via the Disney Channel) a Sneak Peek at Maleficent, starring Academy Award®–winning actress Angelina Jolie.

The film also co-stars Sharlto Copley (“District 9”), Elle Fanning (“Super 8”), Sam Riley (“On the Road”), Imelda Staunton (“Vera Drake”), Miranda Richardson (“The Hours”), Juno Temple (“Atonement”) and Lesley Manville (“Secrets & Lies”).

Maleficent was directed by two-time Oscar®-winning production designer Robert Stromberg from a screenplay written by Linda Woolverton (“The Lion King,” “Beauty and the Beast”).

This is the untold story of Disney’s most beloved villain, Maleficent, 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.

Check out the sneak peek below.

Maleficent hits theaters on May 30, 2014.
