Angelina Jolie Spreads Her Wings and Files in New ‘Maleficent’ Clip
This latest clip from Maleficent film features Jolie’s character having a relaxing time flying through the fantasy world.
For everyone involved, it was important to honor the animated classic. “I think it was both the greatest pleasure and extreme challenge to have such an extraordinary original, and we wanted to make sure we did justice to it and paid respect to what was done before,” Jolie said during a press conference in Paris May 8.
Maleficent is 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.
Watch the clip above and behold! Will you be seeing Maleficent once it is releases in movie theaters on May 30th?
