From Disney comes “Maleficent” — 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.
Angelina Jolie looks wickedly enchanting in the first looks we are getting of Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty” spin-off, “Maleficent.”

“Maleficent” will be released in theaters May 30, 2014.
