Is Disney’s Maleficent here yet?
We can expect a full length trailer for the upcoming Disney film, Maleficent, tomorrow. Meanwhile, get a sneak peak at this new promo in which Angelina Jolie’s character confesses to having wings once, like the other fairies. The highly-anticipated Maleficent is set to tell the backstory of the villain to the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty. As Entertainment Weekly stated, fans of the original film know that the character Maleficent is more than a dark sorceress, she’s actually a dark fairy. It appears that in expanding her mythology, Disney will reveal why, as a fairy, this classic villain never possessed wings like the others (i.e. Flora, Fauna and Merryweather).
It was pretty easy to guess, based on previous trailers, that Maleficent’s origin story will set the stage for the vengeful curse placed on Aurora — and it appears that the loss of her wings was possibly one of many inciting incidents behind the Dark Fairy’s cruel prediction.
Catch the movie on May 30, 2014!
