MALEFICENT - Official "On The Battlefield" Featurette

Walt Disney Pictures have just released a fifth featurette for their upcoming film, Maleficent. Hit the jump to even more new footage from this retelling of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, that stars Angelina Jolie as an evil-horny sorceress.

“Maleficent” is 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.

Maleficent is being directed by Robert Stromberg, based on a screenplay by Paul Dini and Linda Woolverton. The cast includes: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Miranda Richardson and Imelda Staunton. Will land in theaters May 30, 2014.

Sick of sympathetic villain treatments. I don't need to see the origins of all my favourite villains (Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Doctor Doom, Maleficent, etc.). Just give me VILLAINS! Save their backstory for the actors trying to understand the role.

This Disney movie will be just as dark as True Detective.

Can I have my 4 minutes and 41 seconds back RetroFit? Because Patton Oswalt might be the least funniest fking person I've ever heard.

Maleficent looks good. I don't like seeing rehashed material (Snow White bullshish), but with Angelina in it I think it could be decent.
