Maleficent prepares for battle in two new clips and the latest featurette from the anticipated Walt Disney Pictures film. The clips include ‘Fairy Godmother’ and ‘In The Clouds,’ and the featurette is titled ‘On The Battlefield.’
‘Fairy Godmother’ features Aurora and Maleficent coming face-to-face in the Moors. ‘In The Clouds’ showcases the title character using her massive wings to carry her through the Moors and above the clouds. ‘On The Battlefield’ allows audiences to go behind the scenes as the cast and filmmakers create one of the biggest battle scenes in the film.
‘Maleficent,’ which will be presented in Digital 3D, was helmed by first-time feature director, Robert Stromberg, and written by Linda Woolverton. The film stars Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
The following official synopsis for ‘Maleficent’ has been released by Walt Disney Pictures:
‘Maleficent’ explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic ‘Sleeping Beauty’ and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.
