I've been dying for this since I first heard about it, and these trailers just have me chomping at the bit harder. Maleficent is my favorite villain of all time. I think Jolie in this role will be perfect. And can we talk about Lana Del Ray`s hauntingly gorgeous rendition of "Once Upon a Dream"? It gives me chills. Yes, I`m geeking out over it. Don`t judge.

Neither revisionist nor prequel. It's just the Sleeping Beauty story. That`s all I see from the trailer. Could be more but it just looks like a live action version of the cartoon.

@bordo What makes this "revisionist?" It seems to be more of a prequel, telling Maleficent's back-story, and HER perspective on the story we all know. I doubt they`ve revised the story much, just expanded on it.

I feel indifferent about Jolie as an actress (she's not bad; there are better and worse actresses out there) and I feel the hype about how sexy she is is slightly over-rated but... she looks f*cking PERFECT as Maleficent. I want to see this movie just so I can check out how well she plays the role. I hope she does well!!!
