First Featurette For Disney’s ‘Maleficent’ Starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning

Disney has released a new featurette for Robert Stromberg’s ‘Maleficent.’ The new featurette includes previously-unseen footage, as well as interviews with Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, screenwriter Linda Woolverton, and director Robert Stromberg.

I watched the movie and came up with some ideas that revealed more about the character, created a past for her that led to the moment where she curses Aurora, then takes us past that moment from Maleficent’s point of view. It’s a reinvention, not just a retelling of the same story.” says screenwriter Linda Woolverton

This film gives us the opportunity to find out the history of Maleficent and what drove her to the dark side,” says director Robert Stromberg.

Check out the video below:

Official synopsis:

“Maleficent” is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army 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 invading king’s successor 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 perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.

Directed by Robert Stromberg. Stars Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, and Imelda Staunton. ‘Maleficent’ hits theaters May 30, 2014.
