Angelina Jolie promises Disney’s “Maleficent” will be “very different from what people are going to expect” in a new behind-the-scenes featurette.

“We’ve respected the classic, we’ve tried to bring you what we love about this story. We also hope to bring a world you have never seen before,” Jolie, who plays the titular wicked witch, says in the newest preview (above). “It’s a very beautiful story, and I think it’s very different from what people are going to expect.”

Screenwriter Linda Woolverton (“The Lion King”) stresses that the May 30 release isn’t “just a retelling” of Disney’s classic animated fairy tale, “Sleeping Beauty,” it’s a “reinvention” that allows audiences to see “Maleficent’s point of view” before and after she curses Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning).
