Watch: Angelina Jolie Casts a Spell in Theatrical Trailer for 'Maleficent'

"I call on those who live in the shadows. Fight with me now!" Following yesterday's teaser featuring Angelina Jolie spreading her wings as the Disney villain Maleficent, the full theatrical trailer has debuted, shining a light on the evil curse she casts on Sleeping Beauty (Elle Fanning) and the sorceress' dark past. This looks like a tragic tale, with Sharlto Copley playing some sort of overbearing king out to end Maleficent's life. There looks to be some cool fantasy action, and Jolie seems to be pretty damn great as the title villain, not to mention her fire-breathing dragon alternate form. It looks rather good. Watch below!

Here's the theatrical trailer for Robert Stromberg's Maleficent, straight from Disney:

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 this summer. Visit the film's official website. Excited?

  • Well I didn't realize Linda Woolverton wrote the script for this. That gives me a little more hope for it.
    • Why?
      Alice In Wonderland? Hmmm.

        This isn't, Alice in Wonderland all over again this is going to be very different than Alice in Wonderland.

    Elle Fannining is so more attractive than her weird look sister, she has a 1970's look, or timelessness about her, Angelina Jolie is looking awfully scary , she was hotter in Hackers, had more flesh to gaze at, now she is a walking bag a' bones..Nice teeth by the way!
