Watch: Bow Down To Angelina Jolie With 3 Clips From 'Maleficent'

The month we’re getting monsters, mutants and “Maleficent.” Disney‘s summer blockbuster is resting on the exaggerated cheekbones of Angelina Jolie and nostalgia for “Sleeping Beauty” and three clips from the film are here showing off both in spades.

As you know, the movie is a kinda prequel, tracking the story of the evil Maleficent before she was quite so evil. But still, she’s a helluva presence, making a variety of woodland creatures bow down to her greatness, or just vamping around a castle like she owns the damn place. And then there’s the nod to the animated film, with Elle Fanning pricking her finger on a spinning wheel, while Maleficent can’t make it there in time to save her. Will this all work? Does this story really need to be told?

Guess we’ll find out on May 30th. Watch below.
