The Disney Channel debuted a brand new sneak peek for Maleficent Friday night, starring Angelina Jolie as the iconic horned sorceress.

The trailer for the live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic Sleeping Beauty (1959), shows clips of the fairies granting wishes and spells to baby Aurora, as well as Maleficent’s unpleasant arrival.

The trailer also includes footage of Prince Phillip (Brenton Thwaites) planting the infamous kiss on a sleeping Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning).

A most notable clip shows how Maleficent came to be the most feared horned sorceress.

Maleficent explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty" and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

Maleficent also stars Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Miranda Richardson, and Doctor Who’s newest Doctor Peter Capaldi.

Maleficent hits theaters May 30, 2014.
