Maleficent Teaser Trailer And Banner Show A Winged Angelina Jolie

The next Maleficent trailer is coming in one day, and to keep our appetites primed for its arrival, Disney has released a teaser trailer and a new banner, both of which show off another aspect of Angelina Jolie's character. We've seen the claws and the horns. Now there's a giant set of wings to go with them.


As Maleficent can be heard saying in the teaser, "I had wings once. They were strong. They were stolen from me."

The Maleficent Twitter has been promising the arrival of something today, and the teaser appears to be it, along with this banner, which shows off Maleficent's magnificent wings. Click the image below for a bigger version...

Directed by Robert Stromberg, Maleficent will reveal the untold story of Disney's iconic villain from the classic Sleeping Beauty. They say there are two sides to every story, and this is apparently Maleficent's. Jolie's character is driven by revenge as well as the fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides. This leads her to place a dark and irrevocable curse on Aurora, the king's newborn daughter. According to Disney's official description, "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."

It might be safe to assume that having her wings stolen from her is part of why Maleficent is seeking revenge. Perhaps the full trailer, which arrives in a day, will reveal a bit more about the history of this feud and what led Maleficent to target Aurora. Maleficent arrives May 30.
