Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG | 97 Minutes

Directed by Robert Stromberg, Maleficent explores the untold story of Disney’s iconic villain from the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty and the betrayal that ultimately turned her once-pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) places a cruel and irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn child, Aurora.

As the child grows, Aurora (Elle Fanning) is caught in a middle of an age-old conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her destiny. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

Angelina Jolie made an appearance today at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA at the live-action panel for the exclusive first look from her upcoming film, Disney’s Maleficent. A description of the footage is located at the end of this post.

Jolie wowed the crowd at D23, as they erupted upon her entrance, when she joined Sean Bailey, President of Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production, on stage.
