Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil #3

Disney has released the first teaser trailer for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, the sequel to the hugely successful Maleficent. Angelina Jolie returns to play the titular scorned winged sorceress who cursed Princess Aurora to be put under eternal sleep that can only be dispelled by a kiss. But unlike the traditional live-action adaptations, the film took a much different approach by having the film take place from Maleficent’s perspective and exploring why she was bitter towards the kingdom and the young princess.

Now she’s back, along with Elle Fanning, who reprises her role as Princess Aurora. Joining them will be Michelle Pfeiffer as a new character created for this film. Check out the new trailer and six new images from the film below.

Disney Maleficent Angelina Jolie

It’s been a while since we’ve seen any news from Maleficent 2, the sequel to the very popular reimagining of Sleeping Beauty. Starring Angelina Jolie, the film pictured the title character as a protagonist who was wronged by a scheming king who took her wings away thereby taking her powers away. She would eventually get them back, and like most fairy tale endings, they all lived happily ever after.

But there was no way that a huge success like that wouldn’t be followed up with a sequel. And that’s what we are getting. The sequel has a brand new title and now will go by Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. Not only that, but there is a new release date and a teaser poster. Check them all out below.

Maleficent

Honestly, this took a lot longer than expected, but it’s better late than never. Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie as the titular character, was one of last summer’s biggest blockbusters. It wasn’t the first Disney live-action adaptation of an animated classic the studio has released, but its huge success has helped launch a slate of live-action adaptations of animated movies that includes this year’s Cinderella, next year’s The Jungle Book, and upcoming films like Beauty and The Beast, Pete’s Dragon, Mulan, Dumbo, Winnie The Pooh, and much more.

Of course the $758 million worldwide box office gross was more than enough reason for Disney to put a Maleficent 2 into development, but not much has changed since the film’s release. Now we are getting word that Disney is in fact developing a sequel, but some of the key members of the creative team might not be returning. More on the story below.

A new poster for Maleficent has been released by Walt Disney, featuring Angelina Jolie as the feared villainess.

The movie is something of a prequel, and also a retelling of Disney’s classic 1959 animated feature, Sleeping Beauty, taking the film’s primary antagonist, Maleficent (Jolie), and telling the story of who she was before, how an act of betrayal turned her heart to stone, and why she ultimately cursed a young princess named Aurora.

This past December we found out that Disney was moving forward with a sequel to the box office giant Alice in Wonderland, which scored over $1 billion, bringing back screenwriter Linda Woolverton to work on a sequel for the movie.

At the time, it was unclear whether or not director Tim Burton or stars like Johnny Depp or Mia Wasikowska would be back, and we’re still not sure about most of those names. What we do know is that Burton will not be directing—though it’s unclear if he might return as a producer or not.

Instead, Disney has hired James Bobin to direct the sequel, which is currently going under the working title Into the Looking Glass.

Maleficent is now set to arrive in theaters on March 14, 2014, so anyone who’s been excited to see the movie will have to wait a bit.

The live-action retelling will star Angelina Jolie as the dark fairy Maleficent, Disney’s “ultimate villain.” It will tell the story of how she came to be, and what eventually led her to curse the main character of Sleeping Beauty, Princess Aurora.
