Angelina Jolie captures the essence of the evil sorceress Maleficent in a new Disney trailer.

Angelina Jolie is at her evil best in a new trailer for Disney’s “Maleficent,” the retelling of the Brother’s Grimm classic “Sleeping Beauty” from the evil sorceress’s point of view. Can she do evil!

Jolie stars in the Robert Stromberg-directed fantasy along with Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, Lesley Manville and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt.

The new trailer, released today (Mar. 18) shows Maleficent in all her glory. She not only soars in one scene on a pair of black wings, but also makes an appearance as the fire-breathing dragon.

Fanning, 15, also makes an appearance as her character Princess Aurora, who Maleficent has cursed, unbeknownst to the princess.

“I shall bestow a gift on the child,” Maleficent tells the quivering king. “Before the sun sets on her 16th birthday, she will fall into a sleep-like death!” she decries in a billow of green smoke.

As always, Disney’s special effects are always a star, and the new trailer contains some stunning visuals, including Maleficent working her evil magic, casting spells, making people disappear and raising a huge army out of her dark forest.
