MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL trailer – Angelina Jolie is back as the iconic Disney villain

The 2014 Angelina Jolie-headlined MALEFICENT movie helped kick off Disney’s live action adaptations of their animated classics, and was mostly well-received by critics and fans… something that can’t be said for Tim Burton’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND, despite its huge box office take, and the fact it already spawned a sequel. Now MALEFICENT is getting a sequel, bringing back Jolie along with Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora, Sam Riley as Diaval, Imelda Staunton as Knotgrass, Juno Temple as Thistlewit, and Lesley Manville as Flittle. MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL adds in Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith, plus Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ed Skrein, Robert Lindsay, and Harrison Dickinson. This sequel is directed by Joachim Rønning and hits theaters this October. Check our the first teaser trailer below.

“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is 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. The film 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. The film is directed by Joachim Rønning from a story by Linda Woolverton and a screenplay by Linda Woolverton and Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster, the film is produced by Joe Roth, Angelina Jolie and Duncan Henderson with Matt Smith, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Michael Vieira serving as executive producers.
