Angelina Jolie: New ‘Maleficent’ Trailer Released

By: Kimberly Ripley - March 18, 2014

Angelina Jolie flies in a new trailer touting her upcoming film Maleficent. The Disney drama is set to hit theaters in May, and also stars Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora. A new take on Sleeping Beauty, Jolie tells the fairy tale from the wicked witch’s point of view. It tells the story of why she casts the evil spell on Princess Aurora.

The film’s newest trailer features a clip where Jolie and Fanning’s characters are in the forest talking.

“All the other fairies fly, why don’t you?” Aurora (Elle Fanning) asks Maleficent. “I had wings once, they were strong,” the villainess replies as the clip cuts to Jolie flying. “But they were stolen from me. There is evil in this world. Hatred and revenge.”

“Is it true? Are you Maleficent?” Sleeping Beauty says with fear in her eyes as Jolie’s character touches an evil finger to her lips.

Angelina Jolie recently talked about the physically challenging scenes required in order to pull off her role. She even agreed to do yoga, but she didn’t like it.

“She made me do yoga,” she said of her longtime stunt coordinator Eunice Huthart. “And I have no patience for yoga. It’s not something I do easily, because I’m not a still person. But I was forced to do yoga because [to fly] you have to have your core strength to be able to hold yourself.”

As with every role Angelina Jolie plays, her role in Maleficent is no doubt polished to perfection. The mom of six is known for doing everything to the very best of her abilities and those abilities seem to only increase with time.

Will you be checking out Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning in Maleficent when it hits theaters in May? Do you think the film will be a bit too frightening for young children?
