There were some big names in the music industry pulling in the ratings for this year's 56th Grammy Awards, for the older generation no doubt it would have been the Beatles, but for the slightly younger viewers we have no doubt that the dynamic Jay - Z and Beyonce duo was pretty much the whole attraction. However, whatever the reason 28.5 million viewers tuned into CBS for the Grammy's on Sunday didn't matter to Disney, the strength was in numbers and moments after the new Maleficent trailer aired during the award ceremony viewers took to Twitter to tweet their excitement.
The new trailer reveals more Maleficent footage, more of Angelina Jolie, and finally a soundtrack, that will immediately sound familiar, although different. It's a new rendition of the original Sleeping Beauty Disney Classic 'Once Upon a Dream', indeed made dreamy and haunting sung by Lana Del Ray. The unveiling of the soundtrack, now available on iTunes and Google Play, got just as much attention as the beautiful but deathly Maleficient Angelina Jolie embodies so well.
In the new trailer you will notice the Maleficent dragon - the fire breathing creature Maleficent eventually transforms into. How similar does the dragon look to the Maleficent Steampunk Dragon that will be parading in the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade this spring?
The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade will debut this spring at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park. Disney's Maleficent will be released in UK cinemas on the 30th May 2014.
