Check out a new trailer for Robert Stromberg’s “Maleficent,” starring Angelina Jolie as the evil Queen. Well, she’s actually not all that evil. Or is she? This is apparently a “re-visioning” of the “Sleeping Beauty” story, but told from the point of view of the queen. See, she’s not bad. It’s Disney that got it wrong! Well, the first time, anyway. This is Disney correcting their mistake. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Whatever the idea behind this, getting Angelina Jolie to star was a damn brilliant move. She looks almost as great as Charlize Theron was in “Snow White and the Huntsman.” I wasn’t the only one rooting for the evil Queen in that movie, was I?

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.

Starring Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville.

Mali does what she do this May 30, 2014.

      Not really. It has all the hallmarks and nods to the original, even the brightly colored fairies. No I think this is more going back further than the original, giving Maleficent a fleshed out background to go with her iconic status, as well as telling a live action version of their classic version of the story. This looks so good. I can’t wait to take my daughter.

        Yeah this is more like The Great ANd Powerful Oz. An origin story for the villain of a popular tale.
