I don’t know about you guys, but I was a little freaked out the first time I say the trailer for Maleficent in the movie theater, because Angelina Jolie looks like she walked out of the damn animated movie Sleeping Beauty with her portrayal. The awesomeness of Angelina Jolie is foremost on the mind of the cast and crew of Maleficent in a new featurette for the film. Along with that, Disney’s released five new character posters, which paints kind of a dark picture of the pending events in the film, which I guess is apropos when the villain is the main character.
Here’s the freaturette courtesy of Comic Book Movie:

The fates have yet to be kind to these modern fairy tale re-imaginings/adaptations; Alice in Wonderland was kind of a mess that looked like Tim Burton barfed computer effects all over the screen, and Snow White and the Huntsman felt like half an idea that ended at “let’s combine Snow White with The Lord of the Rings.” Hopefully, Maleficent will deliver as advertised.
Maleficent is in theaters everywhere May 30.
