Maleficent Poster

Disney’s most iconic villain, Maleficent from 1959’s classic Sleeping Beauty, will finally have her back story told when Disney’s Maleficent opens in theaters May 30, 2014.


Angelina Jolie stars as Maleficent, a beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, leading an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until the day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent will rise to be the land’s fiercest protector, but ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that starts the process of turning 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.


Enough with the teases. Check out the trailer below:

Maleficent also stars Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville and is directed by Robert Stromberg.

Watching the trailer I got a huge Oz (the latest movie) vibe. A CGI extravaganza with no substance. Lets hope the movie is better than the Oz movie.

@Don. I imagine you are basing Oz off of your own personal opinion, because the movie did excellent box office wise.


i felt like it was a lot like Oz The Great and Powerful too!
