As if her massive horns and cut-glass cheekbones weren’t intimidating enough, Angelina Jolie‘s Maleficent has revealed yet another bizarre feature: wings. Her big, dramatic flappers have just been unveiled for the first time in a new image, banner, and trailer for Maleficent.

As cool as the wings look, though, they don’t necessarily sound that fun to wear. In the accompanying interview, Jolie compared the experience of flying around on set with the wings to that of being “a puppet.” Hit the jump to watch Jolie take flight in her magnificent Maleficent wings.

Maleficent - Angelina Jolie (1)

With about two and a half months to go until the release, Disney has released two more Maleficent posters — one for the U.S. and one for the overseas market. Both feature Angelina Jolie‘s fairy tale villainess and her piercing gaze, but only one takes pains to point out that this is also a Sleeping Beauty movie. Compare and contrast the two after the jump.

The live-action fairy tale craze continues this summer with Maleficent, an origin tale of sorts for one of Disney’s most famous villains. And although star Angelina Jolie laughs that it’s “really funny when people say you’d be obvious for a great villain,” these new Maleficent images prove that she is indeed the perfect choice to play the Mistress of All Evil.

Also featured in this latest batch is Aurora a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty, in two different forms: as a teenager played by Elle Fanning, and as a small child played by Jolie’s daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt. Check out all the photos plus a Maleficent EW cover after the jump.

Maleficent 3

Disney’s last trailer for Maleficent was a strange thing that cut together footage from Robert Stromberg’s new movie with clips of the original animated Sleeping Beauty, in which Maleficent made her debut. The music there was strangely bright, making the real tone of the film difficult to pin down.

This new 90-second look at the film features much of the same footage, and also some new clips. More crucially, it is set to a new version of ‘Once Upon a Dream, ‘ recorded by Lana Del Rey. The song makes for a more appropriate soundtrack for the footage. Check out the long TV spot below. Read More »

Maleficent (header)

In Disney’s original Sleeping Beauty, the divide between good and evil was a pretty clear-cut one. Aurora and her beloved Prince Phillip were good, kind people, and Maleficent was a horrible being who cursed an innocent baby to death. But the studio’s upcoming Maleficent suggests that the “real” story may not be so simplistic.

In the Robert Stromberg-directed film, Maleficent (played by Angelina Jolie) starts out every bit as pure and sweet as any Disney princess, until the destruction of her forest kingdom causes her to turn bitter and hateful. The newest promo contrasts the Mistress of All Evil we know from Sleeping Beauty against the complicated woman that Maleficent shows her to be. Watch it after the jump.

Maleficent

In the original Sleeping Beauty, there’s little debate that Maleficent is one nasty fairy. She curses a child to death; she kidnaps a prince; she refers to herself as “the Mistress of All Evil,” for crying out loud.

But Disney’s upcoming Maleficent aims to muddy that perception a bit. In this live-action retelling, Maleficent (played by Angelina Jolie) starts out as a perfectly sweet gal before tragedy hardens her heart. The first trailer for this dazzling fantasy has just hit the web, and you can watch it after the jump.
