Angelina Jolie Talks About Haunting ‘Maleficent’ Role in New Featurette


If you cannot wait until May 30 to see Maleficent, this new featurette will certainly satisfy your craving for the film.

The two minute clip, which was released on Thursday, begins with Lana Del Rey‘s haunting version of “Once Upon A Dream” and includes interviews with Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning as they discuss their views of recreating Disney’s most iconic villain.

Maleficent provides a fresh take on the classic Disney story of Sleeping Beauty from the villain’s point of view and the story behind why she became so evil.

“We’ve respected the classic. We’ve tried to bring you what you love about this story,” Angelina, who plays Maleficent, says, “We also hope to bring a world that you’ve never seen before.”

Admittedly, Elle, who plays Princess Aurora, revealed that she was never “scared” of Maleficent in the original Disney film but more “intrigued with her.” The 16-year-old also talked about what fans can expect in the upcoming film, “It’s the classic story of Sleeping Beauty plus so much more.”
