Disney’s Magnificent Maleficent is Back!
The movie poster for Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil dropped via Twitter on March 6, 2019. Much like the villainess herself, it is simplistic and yet dramatic. The poster is very dark with the vibrant silhouette of the Mistress of Evil.
The most important part of this tweet, is that it lets us know the fated day of Angelina Jolie’s return to the role of Maleficent and that day is October 18, 2019. So far, much about the movie is being kept under wraps. We know that Elle Fanning will be coming back as Queen Aurora, and that Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville will be returning to their roles. Some new names that will be hitting the cast list are: Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Skreinand, and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
The short description we get from Disney is below.
“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 IIcontinues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy (Angelina Jolie) and the soon to be Queen (Elle Fanning), as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.”
