Angelina Jolie is on her way back to cinemas with plenty of flamboyance and style as the one and only Maleficent and this time this dark fairy will weave plenty of magic in the much anticipated sequel, Maleficent 2: Mistress of Evil.
Watch the exciting new trailer below:
Here’s the full synopsis:
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 2 continues 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.
Director Joachim Rønning weaves his magic this time and the visuals look out-of-this world in this fantastical fairy tale which finds Angelina Jolie’s horned fairy Maleficent once again teaming up alongside the Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning) as they come under attack from a dangerous new enemy.
Facing down Angelina Jolie this time is Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith and there’s will be a battle for the ages as the lines of good and evil square up. Just as to how Pfeiffer’s Queen Ingrith will play into the story still remains to be seen, but from this first look trailer it appears that she has very ill intentions towards Maleficent.
As for how Maleficent will fare this time is anyone’s guess as the former film re-wrote how audiences saw Maleficent and while she was shown to be capable of great good, it appears that her own devastating powers might lead to some very questionable actions as she balances with the ideas of good and evil, and just how these two radically different forces define her.
With it’s incredible visuals, stellar casting and action-packed fantasy narrative, Maleficent 2: Mistress of Evil will make for a very exciting cinematic experience that Walt Disney fans will be very eager to watch when it arrives in cinemas on October 17.
