First Look: Angelina Jolie shows her darker side in new 'Maleficent' trailer

It's Disney's 'Sleeping Beauty' from the perspective of the villain, with Angelina Jolie playing the part of the big baddie herself.

This new 1m30s trailer borrows imagery from the 1959 original animated feature, cementing Maleficent's status as the Mistress of All Evil.

And where Princess Aurora benefits from her fairy godmothers' blessing, Maleficent has a darker secret to share.

Accordingly, the main attraction will always be Angelina Jolie as a terrible witch, resplendant in period dress suited to the surrounding gothic architecture, while Elle Fanning is presented as the innocent Aurora.

'Maleficent' opens in cinemas 29 May 2014
