The latest Maleficent trailer premiered during the Grammy Awards and now we see why. It featured the debut of the Lana Del Rey song Once Upon a Dream, a track that will feature prominently in the film that features Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, the iconic villain from Sleeping Beauty.
Disney is offering a chance for people to check out the song in full over at Google Play, but only through February 3.
The film explores the previously untold story of Maleficent and how she not only came to be, but how she found herself permanently intertwined with the Sleeping Beauty story. She is driven by revenge that stems from her innate wishes to protect the moors that she rules over. In that effort, she places an irrevocable curse on Aurora, the newborn infant of the human king. As she gets older, she is drawn into the fight between the forest world she adores, and the human world that she is firmly a part of.
Maleficent hits theaters May 30 and is one of our must-see movies of 2014. It also stars Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
And yes, that’s Vivienne Jolie-Pitt in the trailer as the little girl running through the field!
