Walt Disney Studios has released a new clip from Maleficent (May 30, 2014), titled ‘Finger Prick.’ The clip, which can be found embedded below, helps explain how Aurora is able to prick herself on a spinning wheel despite King Stefan’s mandate to have them all destroyed. Meanwhile, Maleficent, who is riding atop Diaval transformed into a horse, is racing to the castle until the deed is done, indicating the ties between the two women.
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.
In addition, Disney Interactive has also released this trailer for an upcoming Maleficent branded version of Free Fall as a follow-up to its popular Frozen version:
Maleficent stars Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
