In a new TV spot, the icy Maleficent deigns to allow us another glimpse into her magical kingdom of intrigue, and it doesn't disappoint.

A riot of magical beasts are revealed including sprinting tree figures, lumpen so-ugly-their-cute elves, serpentine dragons and, of course, the most magnificent creature, Angelina Jolie herself.

Check out the 30 second teaser below:

For those of you who have been sleeping under an ancient curse for the last few months, here is an official synopsis to get you up to speed;

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

Maleficent is directed by Robert Stromberg and it will fly on coal black wings to theaters all over the kingdom on May 30th 2014.


Will Maleficent be the best live action Disney film so far?
