Meet Maleficent… and get to know her better on Wednesday morning.
This is the first look we’re getting at Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent, the evil witch at the heart of the classic Sleeping Beauty fable that flips the script – Wicked style – to tell its story from the perspective of the story’s villain. Directed by Robert Stomberg, Maleficent will show audiences what happens in this character’s life to gradually harden her heart, forcing her to cast a devious curse on Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning).
Walt Disney Studios will release the first full trailer for Maleficent on Wednesday morning. Look for it on Fandango as we continue to get you ready for this anticipated family film.
Due in theaters on May 30, 2014, Maleficent costars Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley, Juno Temple, Brenton Thwaites and Peter Capaldi as King Kinloch.
But the story is Jolie, starring in her first film since 2010’s The Tourist with Johnny Depp. What was it about Maleficent that convinced her to tackle another acting project? We’ll know more when we see the film’s trailer. For now, what do you think of this menacing, icy poster?
