Maleficent crashes a christening...
Walt Disney has released the first clip from Maleficent, recreating the moment from Sleeping Beauty where the sorceress (Angelina Jolie) shows up to Princess Aurora's christening uninvited to spread a little dark magic. Check it out below!
The film also stars Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville and opens on May 30th. The film tells the story of Disney's Sleeping Beauty villainess. 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.
