First poster for Maleficent

Maleficent is the newest Disney live-action adaptation from Sleeping Beauty. It stars Angelina Jolie in the title role and will tell the classic tale through the eyes of the villain. Maleficent will be followed by other live-action adaptations for Cinderella and Cruella de Vil. Robert Stromberg is making his directorial debut.

In addition to this poster, which looks pretty darn good, we will be getting the first trailer tomorrow. Also starring alongside Jolie are Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, and Juno Temple.

Here is the synopsis:
"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."
