Disney changes gears from Superhero to Fantasy and drops the sequel to Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent, a film that came way back in 2014. Now after 5 years the sequel Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is ready to be screened and we can’t wait for more.
The trailer brings back Angelina Jolie in the avatar of Maleficent (A horned fairy) and a Godmother to Princess Aurora whom she brought up like her own child.
The upcoming sequel brings the twist in the story of Maleficent, which turns Maleficent against her daughter Aurora who wants to marry Prince Phillips (now played by Harris Dickinson) and settle down.
Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer) is shown to be quite enthusiastic to make Aurora her daughter in law which doesn’t sit well with Maleficent. She retaliates against the idea as she has a very fair reason not to trust humans after what happened to her in the first movie.
The trailer has shown a big battle between the forces of Maleficent and Queen Ingrith but the biggest revelation came at the end when she came face to face with another horned fairy played by Chiwetel Ejiofor. She discovers that she is the only one of her kind and we are left wondering how the reunion will turn out.
This time the Maleficent story revolves around her past and how it affects her relationship with Aurora. And how meeting other horned fairies would impact her life and future.
The film is directed by Pirates of Carribean: Dead Man Tell No Tales famed Joachim Ronning and produced by Angelina Jolie, Joe Roth, and Duncan Henderson. It will weave magic in theatres on October 18, 2019.
