The premiere of Disney's hotly anticipated "Maleficent" is still more than two months away, but the excitement is rising at a rapid pace.

A third trailer for the film was released on Tuesday, and it shows a whole new side of Angelina Jolie's title character. In the 2014 iteration of the story, Maleficent is shown to have once been a winged creature, whose flight was "stolen."

The haunting clip makes the film's antihero seem sympathetic for about a second, before reminding us that she's actually quite terrifying. And if Jolie's character somehow doesn't frighten you, her fire-breathing dragon certainly should.
