The Disney Channel have aired a new trailer of sorts for Maleficent, and the sneak peek contains plenty of great new footage from  Robert Stromberg’s movie featuring the untold story of the iconic villain from the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty.

The video compares footage from the original cartoon to shots from the live-action feature, and it appears as if Disney have done a great job of bringing the world to life, especially with the casting of Angelina Jolie as the titular character.

Maleficent also stars Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Miranda Richardson and Imelda Staunton, and is set to be released on May 30th, later this year.

Maleficent explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 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 (Jolie) cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora (Fanning) 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 land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.
