Jolie is Maleficent
Those who tuned into this years Grammy Awards were in for a treat as Disney debuted a brand new 90 second trailer for new Disney epic, Maleficent.The untold story of one of Disneys most iconic villains from the classic Sleeping Beauty, depicted by Angelina Jolie.
The trailer features an incredibly haunting cover of the original ‘Once Upon A Dream’ by Lana Del Ray, an eerie tune which we actually wouldn’t be out of place in a horror movie! A tune which we feel will become rather iconic in time. This, coupled with some of the new action-packed footage is quite breathtaking and we can’t wait to see how it unfolds on the big screen.
From what we’ve seen Jolie is mesmerising, her un-nerving beauty and powerful presence is what fairytales are made of.
Alongside the story of Jolie’s Maleficent we see hints of Elle Fanning’s Princess Aurora and the war that’s waged across the kingdom. It seems as though it may be dark fantasy action at it’s best, with a shower of spine-tingling Disney magic.
“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.”
