So, Maleficent is starting to warm up on me. It’s the geek inside that gets all giggly when he sees a Dragon come to life, or a faery do some magic, or Angelina looking hotter than she’s ever been with wings and horns on her head. The footage that’s been coming out lately has made the movie look really good, and the featurette and clip below only solidify that fact. Check out a new featurette and a spot that shows off an ‘awkward situation’ between Angelina Jolie and Sharlto Copley.
Here’s the featurette

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]
