Disney’s one of the most iconic villains is back!
Disney has dropped the first trailer for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil which finds the flying sorceress Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) teaming up with Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning) again.
Disney announced that the sequel to Maleficent will be included in its hefty 2019 live-action line-up in early March. The first movie was a dark take on the tale of Sleeping Beauty, from the villain’s point of view with a twist.
The trailer of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil picks up a few years after the events of Maleficent, as the horned fairy joins forces with Aurora as they work to protect the magical lands. The film will explore their complex relationship as the trailer hints at the evil intentions surfacing in Maleficent. The film looks high on CG and visual effects to bring Sleeping Beauty’s fantasy world alive.
Joining Jolie and Fanning in the film are Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith, Harris Dickinson as Prince Phillip, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ed Skrein, and Robert Lindsay in undisclosed roles.
The Mistress of Evil, Maleficent casts her spell in theaters on 18 October 2019.
