Maleficent Teaser Review

And it's finally here! This morning, Disney unveiled the trailer for it's next fairy tale live action adaptation, Maleficent. Starring the always stunning Angelina Jolie, here we get a first glimpse of the wicked fairy and her plans for Princess Aurora (played by Elle Fanning.)

First off, this is truly one of the best teaser trailers I've seen in a very long time. The selection of clips were excellent, giving us the perfect glimpse of the world building done for this Sleeping Beauty retelling. 

You can easily tell director, Robert Stromberg (who is known prior for his visual effects work on James Cameron's Avatar) really has nailed the world of everyone's favorite Disney villain. The colors are truly breathtaking, along with the sequence that ends the teaser: the famous thorn fence. Everything here just works. 

My only sight disappointment is the costumes. Jolie's looks fine, but nothing has truly wowed me in this department (similar to the way I felt with Oz: The Great and Powerful.) But probably when a full trailer is released, my opinion will change greatly. 

But that aside, really - I think this could be a gem of a theater going experience. 

What are your thoughts on the teaser? Comment below!
