Disney has released a batch of new high-resolution Maleficent images from director Robert Stromberg’s upcoming fantasy-adventure film.  The pic 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.  As we get closer to the pic’s release date, more and more visual effects shots are being completed.  Thus far this looks to be a very VFX-heavy outing, and these new Maleficent images give us a look at some of the CGI creatures—both big and small—that populate the fantasy tentpole.

Hit the jump to check out the new Maleficent images.  The film also stars Elle FanningSharlto 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.

    I hope the movie is good, but why did they decide to make the fairies so ugly looking? They look way too CGI.

      This movie looks way too CGI. Heck, even the actors look CGI!

    I really want to like this movie but i just cant help but to think it should be titled… “Maleficent: The Untold Story of the Evil Fairy Who Is Actually Good.” They’ve already done this with Wicked and Oz: the Great and Powerful. I dunno, i just think that if Maleficent was a cold hearted, hateful, wench instead of being a victimzed tragic figure, I would be more invested in this movie. But hey, it’s Disney we’re talking about and its for kids, and they are going to ride the villain misunderstood prequel gravy train until it derails. Until they make a Disney villain truly evil from a nefairious objective…I’ll just wait for this to come on TV when im folding clothes or something.

    Frankly, the fairies look like they’re suffering from Progeria. Maybe that’s Disney’s attempt to make them look somewhat more “realistic” and “real-world.” LOL.

    This movie is going to be really, really bad. Like your typical Angelina Jolie film level bad.

    And just think, she could have been in Gravity.
