Maleficent: New Wicked Trailer Airs During The Grammy Awards (Video)

Tonight, the people at Walt Disney have given us an all new look at their upcoming epic tale Maleficent.

The trailer aired tonight during the 56th Annual Grammy Awards on CBS.

Just in case you haven’t heard the story of this epic tale just yet, here is the official synopsis of the film courtesy of Walt Disney.

“Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.”

There are always two sides to every story. We say the tale of Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty. Maleficent shows us the side of an otherwise misunderstood villain Maleficent.

Here is a look at the brand new trailer for the upcoming film Maleficent.

The film will be the first directorial effort by director Robert Stromberg. The film stars Angelina Jolie as the storied Disney villain. Maleficent also stars Elle Fanning as a young Princess Aurora, as well as Juno Temple, Sharlto Copley, Brenton Thwaites, Peter Capaldi, Miranda Richardson, Imelda Staunton, and many more.

Maleficent is scheduled to be released on May 30, 2014.
