First Teaser Trailer for Disney's 'Maleficent' Starring Angelina Jolie
"I know who you are. You've been watching over my my whole life…" Disney has revealed the first teaser trailer for Maleficent, directed by Robert Stromberg starring Angelina Jolie as the classic "wicked fairy godmother". In the trailer we also meet Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora, who is cursed by Maleficent to "prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die" before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday. As expected, there's plenty of dark, brooding shots of Jolie as Maleficent, taunting the girl. "Then you'll be afraid." I also dig the kind of Tron-like vibe of the music and fantasy feel. Not bad, I'm curious to see more.
Here's the first teaser trailer for Robert Stromberg's Maleficent, direct from Disney's YouTube:
Robert Stromberg (a production designer on Alice in Wonderland and Avatar) is making his directorial debut with Maleficent from a script written by Linda Woolverton (The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast). Angelina Jolie plays the title villain from the classic Disney film Sleeping Beauty in this live-action spin that also stars Sharlto Copley (District 9), Elle Fanning (Super 8), Sam Riley (On the Road), Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), Juno Temple (Atonement) and more. Disney sends Maleficent to theaters everywhere in 3D on May 30th, 2014 next summer. Visit their website. How does that look?

I'll probably check this out. Sleeping Beauty scared the shit out of me when I was a kid.

Fan of Maleficent, wickedest Disney villain ever, but this trailer is, like literally, Snow White & The Huntsman's Robert Stromberg style http://youtu.be/ebSZOlCnXq0

Looks great. As an aside, Disney should have to start paying a tax on every visual effects shot they produce. That'd be the end of the national debt issues in the US.
