Angelina Jolie has looked the part even before we saw yesterday’s official poster. Now, hear her sound the part. It’s eerie!
Being a teaser, there really ain’t much going on in this Maleficent trailer, but it does set one hell of a mood. It’s got the stunning visuals which are a Disney staple. I like how the castle of Disney’s logo, which is Sleeping Beauty’s, is actively worked into the trailer. And how about those spooky towers of spinning wheels?
It’s a little weird to me that Maleficent is just hanging out in the woods and that’s how Sleeping Beauty comes and finds here, but again, this a teaser, what we see may very well not even be in the movie. But how about Jolie!? Doesn’t she sound just like Maleficent from the 1959 Sleeping Beauty!?
Maleficent stars Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville. In theatres May 30th, 2014
