‘Maleficent’ Poster: Who’s the Baddest Witch in Town?

Maleficent Poster Featured

The first ‘Maleficent‘ poster is here, courtesy of Walt Disney Studios, featuring Angelina Jolie in all her glory as the famous fairy tale witch from ‘Sleeping Beauty.’

What’s more exciting, however, is that tomorrow will give fans their first glimpse of footage from this live-action adaptation, which retells the classic Hans Christian Anderson-based story from the perspective of the wicked witch. It’s very ‘Snow White and the Huntsman,’ but with a well-respected actress in the lead. We’ve already seen footage from this past year’s D23 Expo, and, as the ‘Maleficent’ poster teases, it’s well worth a look.

Walt Disney Studios describes the film thusly:

From Disney comes “Maleficent”—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.

Among the names rounding out the ‘Maleficent’ cast are Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville. The film is set for release on May 30, 2014.
