Walt Disney Studios has provided us with nine new high-res versions of recently released stills from Maleficent (May 30, 2014), which has been added to the beginning of our gallery embedded below. Although a couple of the stills actually came from the Dream trailer aired during the Grammys, there are some bonified gems in the new set including an endearing shot of Mama Angelina and daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt as a very young Aurora.
Maleficent explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic Sleeping Beauty and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. 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.
Maleficent stars Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
