Maleficent 2: The Return of the evil Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie came back in the return of Maleficent 2 after the 2014’s Maleficent proved to be a massive hit as audiences loved the backstory of the “evil” fairy who set in motion the chain of events that would become the beloved Sleeping Beauty tale.
As a beautiful young woman of pure heart, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) has an idyllic life in a forest kingdom. When an invading army threatens the land, Maleficent rises up to become its fiercest protector. However, a terrible betrayal hardens her heart and twists her into a creature bent on revenge…

Angelina Jolie is back in the main role and Elle Fanning returns to play Aurora in Maleficent 2.
Among the new cast, additions are Ed Skrein as a villain and Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith, who looks set to be someone who will take on Maleficent.
