Angelina Jolie Gets Chaotic in New ‘Maleficent’ Trailer

Screen Shot 2014-01-21 at 1.15.33 AM

I have to say, when I saw the first trailer for the live-action adaptation of Disney’s villain Maleficent, I wasn’t overly impressed.  It looked like a cool idea, to tell the origin of such a wicked villain; but the trailer’s footage didn’t do it for me.

Maleficent will bring Disney’s eponymous Sleeping Beauty villain to life, retelling the classic story with focus on the witch’s decent to evil.  Maleficent will be played by Angelina Jolie, and the film will see supporting roles from Ell Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple and Brenton Thwaites.  Written by Paul Dini and Linda Woolverton, with rewrites from John Lee Hancock, writer of Disney’s most recent film Saving Mr. Banks, Maleficent may end up being one big surprise.

After seeing this new trailer, I have been sold.  The footage contains a lot of dark magic, more of Aurora’s part, and a lot more fantasy sequences.  The special effects look stunning and I’ve been convinced that this movie could have more potential than I originally thought.

What do you guys think of the latest footage from the upcoming Disney fantasy film?  You can see the trailer below:
