Some more Maleficent news for you...
Coming Soon reports that tomorrow, anyone at a Disney Park (on either cost) will be able to see a sneak peek of Walt Disney Studios' Maleficent. It will play daily in RealD 3D at Disney's Hollywood Studios in the ABC Sound Studio and at Disney California Adventure park.
Meanwhile, the studio has released a new featurette for the film. The new take on a classic villain debuts on May 30. It stars Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
Here's a synopsis: Maleficent is the untold story of Disney's most iconic villain from the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty. A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land's fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king's successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent's true happiness as well.
