Angelina Jolie is fiercer than ever in the new poster for “Maleficent.”

The A-list star is playing the titular character in this twisted take on the Disney classic “Sleeping Beauty,” due out on May 30, 2014.

According to the official press release, the first trailer for the film will be unveiled Wednesday morning at 9am ET.

Disney’s official “Maleficent” Facebook page describes the movie as the untold story of one of their most iconic villains.

Though she began as a naïve young woman, a “ruthless betrayal” destroys her happiness and her heart, leading her to curse a royal baby named Aurora.

“As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom – and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.”

Elle Fanning stars as young Princess Aurora, with “The Giver” star Brenton Thwaites as Prince Phillip and Juno Temple (“The Dark Knight Rises”) as Thistletwit.
