The mystery of 'Malificent's' missing wings revealed in teaser trailer

The tale of "Sleeping Beauty" is well-known, but one question has remained unanswered until now: Why doesn't Malificent, the title character in Disney's upcoming live-action film by the same (starring Angelina Jolie in the title role), have wings? The answer was revealed in a teaser trailer released on Monday.

Malificent is, after all, a fairy, albeit an evil one. The answer to the question above is the she did have wings. However, as Jolie says, “They were stolen from me."

The wings, which remind us more of the wings of a raptor -- perhaps even a vulture -- being huge, black-feathered, and ominous-looking -- can be seen in the embedded video.

“Maleficent” will open in theaters on May 30.
