WATCH: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning Talk ‘Maleficent’ in New Featurette

“There is evil in this world – hatred and revenge,” says Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent in the new featurette for the upcoming Disney film.

The origin of this evil in the world of the animated classic “Sleeping Beauty” is precisely what Disney’s live action “Maleficent” sets out to explain.

The “Legacy” featurette includes behind-the-scenes interviews with Jolie and Elle Fanning, who plays Princess Aurora, as they discuss their views of this new take on the Disney villain.

“We’ve respected the classic. We’ve tried to bring you what you love about this story,” Jolie explains. “We also hope to bring a world that you’ve never seen before.”

Screenwriter Linda Woolverton says the new movie explores Maleficent’s past, her motives for cursing Aurora and more – all from the villain’s point of view.

“This film gives us an opportunity to find out the history of Maleficent and what drove her to the dark side,” says helmer Robert Stromberg.

“Maleficent” bows in theaters May 30.
