The tale of Sleeping Beauty is one of the most well-known fairytales, with the 1959 animated Disney classic of the same name often held as the most well-regarded telling of the story. When Disney themselves, however, announced plans for a live action telling of the story, many were intrigued, particularas it promised a different perspective, filtering the story this time through the eyes of the antagonist Maleficent. Interest was further piqued with the casting of Angelina Jolie in the lead role, where she’ll be joined onscreen by Juno Temple, Elle Fanning, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, and Sharlto Copley. The first trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.
