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:
