Get ready for summer 2014, Maleficent will be hitting a theater near you. As a Sleeping Beauty fan, I am thrilled at the release of this movie. It looks like it is going to be a bit more on the dark side and the recent trailer, showcasing “Once Upon A Dream” by Lana Del Rey is oh so haunting! In case you missed it during the Grammy’s here is the new trailer:
In case you want to hear the full version of the song it’s available for free download ONLY on Google Play now through February 3. Award-winning, American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey has recorded a unique reimagining of the renowned fairy-tale tune from Disney’s classic animated film “Sleeping Beauty,” which will feature in the end credits of the upcoming Disney film.
“Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.
The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville. It opens in theaters May 30, 2014! Keep up with all things Maleficent on the website, twitter, facebook, instagram, pinterest, and tumblr!
