Maleficent Trailer: Is Angelina Jolie terrifying enough for the role?

By admin | 3 years ago

The first Maleficent trailer by Disney has been released. Although, it’s just a teaser but is sufficient to give you the feel about the movie.

The live action film, directed by Robert Stromberg, is obviously starring Angelina as the title character, something that not too many fans are confident of.


The story follows a Maleficent who was transformed from an innocent young woman into a witch with a brutal heart. The evil witch then casts a spell over Princess Aurora plunging her into a deep sleep that only true love’s kiss could wake her from.

Angelina really looks awesome with the hat of horns on her head, however, the trailer isn’t heavy on the Jolie. Much of the details will be revealed when the full-length trailer comes out. Anyhow, I just wish Disney to have put some extra effort into the movie to make her even scarier in this live-action version.

Earlier this year, Jolie discussed Maleficent at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California where she came on stage in black trousers and a black jumper.

“People with little kids would visit the set and I would think, ‘Oh I’m a Disney character’, and I would go over to the children and say ‘hi’, and they’d scream and run off,” she said laughing.

The supporting cast includes Elle Fanning co-stars as Aurora, Juno Temple and Peter Capaldi. Maleficent is due out to release in the UK on May 30, 2014.
