After a spectacular poster debut, the trailer for Maleficent is here. Angelina Jolie plays the title villain, the sorceress who dooms Aurora (aka Sleeping Beauty) with a prick of her finger to the spindle. Elle Fanning stars as the princess, and I'm already hooked by the pair. This looks like a dark, scary version of Disney's classic tale — exactly what Maleficent herself would have wanted. Also exciting is that we get a glimpse at little Vivienne Jolie-Pitt as a young Princess Aurora! Surprise, she's adorable.
This is, of course, Maleficent's side of the story, which means we see more of her than what we already know. The trailer showcases not only the two main characters, but the warped vines that imprison Aurora. At one point, Aurora asks Maleficent to come out, and tells her not to be afraid. Maleficent's response: "Then you'll be afraid." Chills! Maleficent comes out May 30, 2014, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
