“I had wings once. And they were strong, but they were stolen from me,” the film’s official Twitter captioned with the striking image.
JJJ FUN FACT: Maleficent was always a fairy! Read the excerpt from the original fairytale by Charles Perrault below:
“When the christening ceremony was over, all the company returned to the king’s palace, where a great banquet was held in honor of the fairies. Places were laid for them in magnificent style, and before each was placed a solid gold casket containing a spoon, fork, and knife of fine gold, set with diamonds and rubies. But just as all were sitting down to the table an aged fairy was seen to enter, whom no one had thought to invite — the reason being that for more than fifty years she had never quitted the tower in which she lived, and people had supposed her to be dead or bewitched.
By the king’s orders a place was laid for her, but it was impossible to give her a golden casket like the others, for only seven had been made for the seven fairies. The old creature believed that she was intentionally slighted, and muttered threats between her teeth.”
Opening on May 30th, Maleficent is told from the perspective of the villainous Maleficent and looks at the events that hardened her heart and drove her to curse young Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning).
