Maleficent: Watch Angelina Jolie In Action

Sleeping Beauty fans have been given a glimpse of the new film Maleficent which tells the tale of Princess Aurora's battle with her wicked nemesis.

The new trailer shows the character, played by Angelina Jolie, with her large wings for the first time.

"I had wings once, and they were strong," Maleficent says. "But they were stolen from me."

Jolie's daughter Vivienne plays the young Aurora in the film while Elle Fanning takes on the role of the grown-up princess.

The trailer also features a clip of the villain placing the curse on baby Aurora: "Before the sun sets on her 16th birthday, she will fall into a sleep-like death!"

The clip also gives a hint at why the villain's heart may have turned to stone many years ago.

Maleficent also stars Imelda Staunton, Lesley Manville and Juno Temple as the three pixies Knotgrass, Flittle and Thistlewit.

The film is released in the UK on May 30.
