Meleficent Trailer #2

The first trailer for Meleficent set up a foreboding, creepy fairy tale of an innocent girl coming face to face with a dark and powerful force in the guise of a bewitching woman (pun intended). Now, a new trailer surfaces, utilizing music that speaks more of wonder than horrors and imagery that mirrors classic Disney over..say..Hansel and Gretyl: Witch Hunters. It's a HUGE shift in tone I don't think anyone saw coming, but maybe this new trailer says more about the film than the previous trailer hinted at? An interesting turn of events, to say the least. Hit the jump and watch...

From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” 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.

Sooo..happy happy vs eeevil. Still excited for Maleficent or is the shift in tone enough to make you turn your back? Hit the comments and tell us!
