She may not have been the first Disney villain but 1959 brought us one of the greatest Disney villains- Maleficent, from Sleeping Beauty. Now, starting May 30, 2014, we will find out the reason(s) Maleficent was the way she was in the live action take of Sleeping Beauty. Who is to play the "Mistress of all evil"? Angelina Jolie will be bringing Maleficent to the big screens come next May.
From Disney comes “Maleficent”— the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty”. A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.
I know I wouldn't put pure-hearted woman and Maleficent in the same sentence with only seeing Sleeping Beauty but the movie Maleficent will give us an insight as to what happened to that pure-hearted young woman to cause her to become the horned headdress wearing, Mistress of all evil that we saw in Sleeping Beauty.
You can see Angelina Jolie as Maleficent in the first teaser trailer for Maleficent below.
