Angelina Jolie's portrayal of the sorceress is chilling

Disney released a new trailer for the highly anticipated Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie (and her razor-sharp cheekbones). It’s glossy, highy stylized and oh-so-deliciously dark. The 1.31 minute trailer finally gives us a tiny peek into Angelina’s portrayal as the titular character. Grammy nominee Lana Del Rey’s haunting voice lilts hypnotically on The Sleeping Beauty theme song, lending an eerie quality to an already unsettling trailer. 

"Since I was a little girl, Maleficent was always my favourite," Angelina said. "I was terrified of her, but I was also drawn to her. I wanted to know more about her. She had this elegance and grace, yet she was wonderfully, deliciously cruel."

Maleficent retells the fairytale from the perspective of the sorceress and focuses on the events that prompted her to curse the infant princess. Elle Fanning and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt also star in the film which is due for release in late May. We can't wait.
