Maleficent 18

Disney have released a series of new character posters, promo clips and the first featurette for Maleficent.

We also have an IMAX poster for the Disney movie, featuring the stunning Angelina Jolie as the classic Sleeping Beauty villain. The promo clips meanwhile (along with the featurette) include interviews with the cast and crew along with some brand new footage from the highly anticipated release.

Maleficent will give fans a look at the other side of Sleeping Beauty. What made this classic villain from that movie the way she is today, and what took her from being one of the fairies to the evil and wicked woman we saw in that classic animated feature?

Maleficent will hopefully answer all that and more, but for now, let us know what you think of this new promotional material in the comment section below!

“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.

Starring Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville, Maleficent is directed by Robert Stromberg and opens on on May 30th, 2014.
