New Maleficent TV Spot Conjures Up A Dream
Angelina Jolie dominates another trailer

27 January 2014  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Disney

It’s been less than a week since the most recent trailer for Disney’s re-telling of Sleeping Beauty, focused on Angelina Jolie’s misunderstood fairy Maleficent. That isn’t stopping the Mouse House from taking advantage of the big Grammy Awards audience to debut a new TV spot featuring Lana Del Rey crooning a slow tempo take on Once Upon A Dream. 

This story sees Jolie's Maleficent grow up in an idyllic forest, only to see it ravaged by an invading army and be betrayed by those closest to her, which poisons her heart. Out for revenge, she curses the baby daughter of the invading king – but as the child grows up (into Elle Fanning), she realises that the youngster may be the key to peace between the kingdoms.

Unlike that last promo (which you can still catch here), this one features longer looks at the film itself, including some of the fantastical creatures the effects team have brought to life and Sharlto Copley’s human king. 

With Robert Stromberg directing and Copley, Juno Temple, Brenton Thwaites, Imelda Staunton, Sam Riley, Lesley Manville, Kenneth Cranham and Jolie’s daughter, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt all in the cast, Maleficent is out on May 30.
