Disney premiered a new trailer for Maleficent, the live-action adaption of the Disney version of Sleeping Beauty. We see a lot more of Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, and it is impressive. The new look at the film was first shown as an ad during Sunday night’s Grammy awards show. The first look trailer was pretty hard to judge the film by; this new trailer seems give a lot better look at what to expect from this new film.
Honestly, the firs trailer did not look great. It was interesting, but it did not make me feel real good about this film. The new trailer changes all that. Now I am impressed. Now I will be seeing this day one. I questioned Jolie’s ability to pull off this role based on the last trailer. Well, I am sold on this now. Now I believe Angelina Jolie is doing a great Maleficent.
The new trailer features a haunting Lana Del Rey cover of the Sleeping Beauty song “Once Upon a Dream.” It also bodes well for this film that it is written by Linda Woolverton and Paul Dini, and produced by Don Hahn. The film releases theatrically May 30, 2014.
So, what do you think? Has Jolie pulled off Maleficent?
