The third trailer for the upcoming live-action retelling of Disney's Sleeping Beauty is here, and this new Maleficent fix reveals more than any of the previous trailers have.
The official "Legacy" trailer offers up some fond, nostalgic memories, with references to the 1959 animated movie, the fairy trio, a younger Maleficent, and baby Princess Aurora.
Take a look and see what you think:
In the words of Angelina herself, "how wonderful" indeed!
So, you thought that the wicked witch who curses Sleeping Beauty to prick her finger on a spindle and die after she is turned away from a royal christening is just the "queen of evil"? Think again...
Jolie's witch will be a more sympathetic character than the original figure: her heart is hardened by the ruthless destruction of her peaceful forest by a marauding army, driving her to seek revenge. She later sees that her persecution of the invading king's daughter (Elle Fanning) may be the wrong move, as the child offers her best chance of a truce between kingdoms. Excited?
