As Walt Disney Studios nears the release of its mysterious and beautiful Maleficent movie, the more footage Disney is slowly unveiling. When Walt Disney Studios released the first Maleficent trailer, the titular character, played by the mesmeric Angelina Jolie, was hidden within the thick of the forest. We heard her speak two very small lines, we saw her silhouette - that revealed she would have the very same horns that adorn the animated Maleficent, we saw her gruelish green eyes, her harsh cheek bones and the evil staff on which her raven Diablo perches. It was tantalising and enchanting. Disney had viewers exactly where they wanted us, wanting more and especially more footage of Jolie as this wicked villainess.
As the Maleficent movie premiere approaches more Maleficent magic has emerged; new movie posters are shared online, a revamped 'Once Upon a Dream' soundtrack, sang by Lana Del Rey, is unveiled. More narrative to this haunting tale is revealed and trailers revealing more of the terrifying and fantastical Maleficent character surface.
This week, not only have Disney released another Maleficent trailer, showing off the evil fairy's impressive wings (wings she once had before they were stolen from her) and the louring Maleficent dragon in which she transforms into, but the Disney parks have also announced news of a special sneak peek of the chilling fairytale airing daily at Disney's Hollywood Studios ABC Sound Studio in Walt Disney World Florida and at Disney California Adventure Park's A Bug's Life Theatre, beginning the 18th April.
Walt Disney Studios Maleficent comes to cinemas the 30th May. However, if you're Disney bound for the Easter festivities, be sure to watch this special Maleficent preview at either of America's Disney parks before it hits the big screen!
