Angie as a wicked fairy, and Elle as a pretty princess, and an actual grim rendition of a Grimm tale, Oh my! The “Dream” trailer for Maleficent was released on Sunday, and it has me sold – very much so. I mean, my college-aged self is kind of hyperventilating and stuff, just like a little girl wearing a tutu for the first time! Excuse my immaturity, friends. It is still inside me just like those Russian nesting dolls and it is coming out like a tiny volcano right now (shudder). It’s just that Disney makes THE best fairy tale movies. For example: Beauty and the Beast! And Tangled! And Frozen! And this fairy tale film is starring real people onscreen – not just any real people, mind you, but real people like Angelina Jolie. Again, this trailer has me eager to see this movie!
Release date: May 30, 2014
The untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman with stunning black wings, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army of humans 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 king of the humans 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 to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.
