I’ll admit it and say that I wasn’t the biggest fan of Maleficent when I saw the first preview. I’m a big enough Angelina Jolie fan, and she honestly looks like she has Benjamin Button disease. She is literally aging backwards! Anywho, the latest trailers and pictures that I’ve seen have been getting me pumped about this film.

Below, we have a lot of new pictures that features some of the mythical creatures in the film, including a DRAGON! Check them out!

Here’s the synopsis:

[box_light]“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.[/box_light]
