We have already been treated to the first Maleficent poster this week, and now we can take a look at the first trailer.

Yes, Angelina Jolie is back as one of the most iconic of Disney's villains in the Robert Stromberg directed movie.

This is a 2014 film that we are already excited about as we cannot wait to see this character explored further on the big screen.

Here is the first teaser trailer for you to take a look at:

We have seen some of the most famous fairy stories brought to the big screen in recent years with the likes of Snow White, Hansel & Gretel and Jack and the Beanstalk all give a live action makeover.

Maleficent boats an all star cast list as Jolie is joined by , Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton and Juno Temple.

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.

It is always great to see a Disney movie hit the big screen and we are excited to see Angelina Jolie strut her stuff in this exciting role.

Maleficent is released May 2014.
