First Poster and Release Date “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil”
Did you forget that Maleficent 2 was still in the works? With all of the amazing movies Disney is releasing, it kind of did slip my mind. But Disney wanted to remind everyone by releasing the films first poster and also a release date.
Jolie is back in the role of Maleficent, while Fanning will be back as Princess Aurora. They will be joined by Harris Dickinson, who is replacing Brenton Thwaites as Prince Phillip, while Michelle Pfeiffer and Chiwetel Ejiofor have also joined the film.
The sequel is described as “a fantasy adventure that picks up several years after Maleficent, in which audiences learned of the events that hardened the heart of Disney’s most notorious villain and drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora, Maleficent II continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen, as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.”
Directed by Joachim Rønning (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales), the Maleficent sequel — which centers on Disney’s famed evil fairy first seen in the classic Sleeping Beauty — boasts a script by Linda Woolverton, Micah Fitzerman-Blue, and Noah Harpster and sees cast members from the 2014 movie, Elle Fanning (Aurora) and Sam Riley (Diaval), return alongside Jolie. The sequel also adds Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith and Harris Dickinson will play Prince Phillip. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ed Skrein, and Robert Lindsay are also joining the cast.
The dark fantasy flick will hit theaters Oct. 18, 2019.
