The Disney Channel debuted a brand-new 90-second sneak peek at Angelina Jolie in the live-action fantasy epic Maleficent, which offers new footage and goes out of its way to make sure you'll pronounce the title right when you buy your tickets at the box office (Mal-Fuss-Int). Watch as Disney's greatest villain places a curse on the newborn Aurora, setting in motion the legacy that we've come to know as Sleeping Beauty.
Maleficent is 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.
