Disney has released a new clip and featurette from director Robert Stromberg’s fantasy adventure Maleficent.  The film tells the story of how the titular Sleeping Beauty villain turned antagonist, as Angelina Jolie plays a woman whose betrayal sets off a drive of revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides.  This new clip shows the “finger prick” scene with Elle Fanning’s Aurora, and while the film continues to look stylistically impressive, I’m curious to see if we’ll finally get a compelling fairy tale adventure film or if this one will join the ranks of snoozers like Alice in Wonderland and Snow White and the Huntsman.  As for the behind-the-scenes featurette, Stromberg and Jolie discuss balancing the light and dark aspects of the film.

Hit the jump to watch the Maleficent clip and featurette.  The film also stars Sharlto CopleySam RileyImelda StauntonJuno Temple, and Lesley Manville.  Maleficent opens in 2D and 3D on May 30th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Maleficent:

“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.
