Earlier this month we shared with you a brief teaser for Disney’s “Maleficent”. That teaser had a certain children’s movie vibe to it which was complemented with the addition of a cheesy narrator. However, the newest trailer drops all of that for a more intense presentation.
The trailer features a lot of footage we’ve seen before, but now it is accompanied by a chilling rendition of “Once Upon a Dream” sung by Lana Del Ray. There are also a few brief glimpses of a large scale battle between humans and forest creatures. “Maleficent” certainly seems to be aiming for a larger scope than I had previously expected.
“Maleficent” is being directed by Robert Stromberg from a script by Paul Dini and Linda Woolverton. The film stars Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, and Elle Fanning. It hits theaters on May 30, 2014.
