New trailer for Maleficent released

A new trailer for the Angelina Jolie-starring Maleficent has been released, and this time we get comparisons to her cartoon counterpart.

Providing a handy reminder of Disney’s original (and wonderful) Sleeping Beauty , the trailer also hints that this live-action version of the fairytale is also a reinterpretation of the character we know and hate.

Was Maleficent really just a wicked old witch, or was she a misunderstood forest dweller who suffered a ruthless betrayal?

This trailer suggests the latter, but we remember the original story well, so we’re reserving judgement for now.

Check out the magic and marvel for yourselves:
