Teaser Debut: ‘Maleficent’

Maleficent

Angelina Jolie awakens from her slumber to star in Disney’s re-imagined take on the Sleeping Beauty legend, Maleficent.

Jolie takes on the title role, playing a more sympathetic version of the evil Queen who sends Sleeping Beauty (a worrisomely accented Elle Fanning) to the land of nod.

Though this newly released teaser looks a tad darker than other recent fairytale do-overs (such as Alice in Wonderland and Snow White and the Huntsman), there is a sense of overwhelming familiarity here.

Perhaps production designer Robert Stromberg – making his directorial debut – will show us something new in the eventual full-length trailer.

The picture also stars Sharlto Copley, and will hit cinemas May 2014.
