A first look at the Sleeping Beauty with her Prince Charming and Angelina Jolie's wicked sorceresses coming to visit the king are among the new footage seen in the new sneak peek.
A trailer for Disney's live-action "Maleficent" has arrived online, featuring some new footage including the moment when Elle Fanning's Sleeping Beauty is about to be awakened with a kiss by her Prince (Brenton Thwaites). It also teases a scene where Angelina Jolie's evil witch visits the king and casts her spell on an infant Princess Aurora.
The film explores the origins story of the iconic villain from a beautiful, pure-hearted young woman who turns into a cold-stoned sorceress due to a ruthless betrayal. Hell bent on revenge, she faces an epic battle with the invading king's successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn daughter.
Helmed by first-timed director Robert Stromberg, the dark fantasy film is slated to hit theaters nationwide on May 30, 2014. Juno Temple and Peter Capaldi are among the supporting cast members.
