WATCH: Maleficent spreads her wings in new banner and teaser trailer

March 17th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Disney has released a new teaser trailer and banner for director Robert Stromberg’s upcoming film Maleficent. The new banner and teaser both focus on Maleficent’s impressive wingspan, which Jolie’s narration tells us was lost for some unstated reason.  A full-length trailer for the pic will be unveiled tomorrow, which should give us a more solid idea of what to expect from the film since the previous trailers have simply focused more on the tone and atmosphere.

The film 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.

The Robert Stromberg directed film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.

Maleficent is set to hit theaters on May 30th, 2014.
