Maleficent (2014) - Teaser Trailer
Robert Stromberg’s Maleficent teaser trailer features Disney throwing Angelina Jolie in the role of an evil witch who was not always evil. The graphics are spectacular and their is always such beauty surrounded by the darkness. I love how they reveal the characters in this teaser trailer. Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) is watching Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning) all her life and Princess Aurora finally decides to talk to Maleficent and make it known that she knows. Aurora tells her to show herself and that she (Maleficent) should not be afraid only to have Maleficent reply that if she were to step out then Princess Aurora would be afraid. Disney nailed it with these scenes because I have to see the full film now. Maleficent opens in theater this upcoming March 21, 2014.
Synopsis:From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn 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.
