Last night the Disney channel debuted a new sneak peek of their upcoming villain origin film 'Maleficent' during the premiere of the TV movie 'Cloud 9.'

Disney's 'Maleficent,' a retelling of 'Sleepy Beauty' told from the perspective of the villainous witch, was bumped up from its July 2, 2014 release slot and to May 30 of the same year.
