Maleficent trailer

Disney released a new trailer for Maleficent featuring a haunting cover of “Once Upon a Dream,” by Lana Del Rey from the 1959 animated film Sleeping Beauty.

Angelina Jolie stars as Maleficent, a gorgeous sorceress who was once the land’s protector and is now its greatest threat. Look for crazy spells, grass-root monsters, and lovely fairies in this tale fueled by anger, hate and revenge.

The film also stars Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville. Maleficent opens in theaters on May 30, 2014.

Here’s the official synopsis for Maleficent:

From Disney comes “Maleficent”—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.
