Angelina Jolie is positively "Maleficent" in the live-action movie's first trailer.
The 38-year-old Oscar winner is at her baddie best as the evil mistress in Disney's re-telling of its classic "Sleeping Beauty" story.
Rather than focus on Aurora, the princess antagonized by Maleficent, the 2014 update is all about the villain as it explores how she came to be so wicked.
The teaser trailer released on Wednesday doesn't tell us much about how exactly it's going to present "Sleeping Beauty" from Maleficent's point of view, but it does introduce its main stars: Jolie as Maleficent, her youngest daughter, Vivienne, as a toddler Aurora, and Elle Fanning as the princess in her older years.
The film, directed by Robert Stromberg, arrives May 30, 2014.
