The teaser begins with Maleficent walking through a crowd, ready to bestow her "gift" on princess Aurora. After a full-body shot of her conjuring up evil magic, in the form of green smoke, Maleficent disappears.
But she's later shown walking menacingly through the forest and summoning up grass-and-branches-covered monsters, which later do battle with armored knights unleashed by the castle.
"There is evil in this world, hatred and revenge," Maleficent says in a voiceover as Aurora is mesmerized by a spindle.
The teaser ends with an evil laugh from Maleficent.
Maleficent hits theaters on May 30.
