Maleficent Movie Clips Released To Tease Us All

The release of Maleficent is so close we can almost taste it, and just to whet our appetite that little bit more, some new clips and behind the scenes snippets are here for our viewing pleasure. One of the most hotly anticipated films of the year, Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie in the title role, tells the tale of the wicked fairy from the beloved Disney Classic, Sleeping Beauty.

The live action film, also starring Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley and Imelda Staunton, explores how Maleficent’s once pure heart turned cold, and why she came to curse the infant Aurora.  In the four clips from the film below, we get a glimpse of how majestic and powerful Maleficent really is, and also, intriguingly, we see her riding rapidly toward the castle, seemingly trying to reach Aurora before she pricks her finger and falls into her deathlike slumber.
The second clip takes us behind the scenes, giving us a glimpse of what appears to be a battlefield, and some beautiful shots of Fanning as Aurora. We also get to see more of the three good fairies, Flora, Fauna and Merryweather as they raise Aurora out of harms way deep in the woods.  
The final clip gives us a look at the musical score being recorded, and it sounds absolutely stunning. I have my tickets booked already, and I’ll be eagerly waiting in my seat come Wednesday, hoping to be thoroughly entranced and entertained.
