Disney has released a teaser trailer for the new dark fantasy film Maleficent, opening in theaters May 30, 2014.
The film offers up a new spin on the classic 1959 tale Sleeping Beauty.
In the original fairytale, Maleficent (also known as the mistress of all things evil) places a deadly curse on Princess Aurora.
However, unlike most Disney films, this story will be told from the villain’s perspective.
The new trailer features a young Princess Aurora speaking to a stranger hiding in the darkness.
“I know who you are,” Aurora says.
“You’ve been watching over me my whole life. I know you’re there. Your shadow, it’s been following me ever since I was small. Don’t be afraid.”
I am not afraid,” the dark figure replies.
Aurora exclaims, “Then come out.”
Suddenly, a sinister looking Maleficent slowly emerges from the dark shadows and says, “Then you’ll be afraid.”
Maleficent stars Angelina Jolie as the evil Maleficent and Elle Fanning as innocent Princess Aurora.
