Brand new Maleficent trailer up

21 January 2014

From rags to witches.

Following last November's teaser trailer, Disney have granted a better look Maleficent, their latest dip into the fairy tale water.

The dark live-action fantasy, a sort-of prequel to Sleeping Beauty, stars Angelina Jolie as the titular witch in an origins story for Sleeping Beauty's chief adversary.

The new trailer gives us plenty of new glimpses of the CGI-heavy movie, which features more than a few nods to Disney's classic 1959 animated feature - for many, the definitive version of the legendary Brothers Grimm tale.

Appearing alongside Jolie will be Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple, Brenton Thwaites, Imelda Staunton, Sam Riley, Lesley Manville, Kenneth Cranham - and Jolie’s daughter, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt.

Maleficent is released in UK cinemas on May 30th, 2014.
