Following on from yesterday's poster reveal, Walt Disney Pictures has now released the first trailer for Maleficent, the upcoming live-action reimagining of Disney's 1959 animated classic Sleeping Beauty, which stars Angelina Jolie as the iconic villain; check it out after the official synopsis....

"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. »
