Disney has released the official trailer for the sequel, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil – the Sleeping Beauty retelling.
With more additional characters from Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith and Harris Dickinson as Prince Phillip (replacing Brenton Thwaites in the role) to a revelation of other horned fairies (Chiwetel Ejiofor), depicting that Angelina Jolie’s horned character is not alone in the Sleeping Beautyverse.
The trailer shows a war between Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) and Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer), as Maleficent contradicts to the impending marriage to Prince Phillip: “Love doesn’t always end well,”, “There is no union — there will be no wedding!”
Directed by Joachim Ronning — who was one of the directors of another Disney sequel, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”. 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.
