Disney got their Grammys on last night, taking the opportunity to unveil a music-tinged teaser for “Maleficent” during the show.
Following in the footsteps of the most recent trailer, which spliced in footage from the animated “Sleeping Beauty,” the new spot paid homage to the 1959 classic.
The new trailer (via Deadline) features an eerily beautiful reinvention of “Once Upon a Dream,” this time sung by Lana Del Rey.
Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent kicks things off by breaking up Aurora’s (played as a teen by Elle Fanning) birth ceremony, and the rest of the 90-second teaser has little dialogue.
Brenton Thwaites (“The Giver”) also stars as Prince Phillip, along with the King (Peter Capaldi, “Doctor Who”) and Juno Temple (“The Dark Knight Rises”) as Thistletwit.
“Maleficent” is due out on May 30. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think of Lana’s cover in the comments!
