Okay, so unless you've been residing on a desert island, you're probably aware that Disney will be releasing an EPIC film on May 30, 2014. And Angelina Jolie plays the most intimidating Disney villainess of all, THE Maleficent. (Did you just get the shivers? I sure did!) I think that Angelina has a certain quality that makes her absolutely perfect for this role. She can be sweetness and light when she needs to be, but Angie's also got a dark side that she's pretty well-known for. I, for one, cannot WAIT to see her tackle this role!
"Maleficent" hits theaters on May 30, 2014. But I do have some brand new footage to show you. First, check out this "Light and Dark" featurette. Then, you can check out the "Finger Prick" clip right below it!
"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.
The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
“Maleficent” is produced by Joe Roth and directed by Robert Stromberg, with Angelina Jolie, Michael Vieira, Don Hahn, Palak Patel, Matt Smith and Sarah Bradshaw serving as executive producers. Linda Woolverton wrote the screenplay. “Maleficent” opens in U.S. theaters on May 30, 2014.
