The dark fairy spin-off of Sleeping Beauty will arrive just before Halloween this year and we can’t contain our excitement.
Angelina Jolie is back to reprise her role as Maleficent, but this time the winged creature is the mother of the bride. Disney dropped the trailer for Maleficent: The Mistress of Evil which reveals the evil fairy attempting to ruin the wedding of Aurora (Elle Fanning) and Prince Phillip. The trailer also unveils actress Michelle Pfeiffer, who will play Prince Philips mother and the queen of the kingdom next door. Maleficent and the queen are at odds and will fight for their loved ones till the very end.
Disney gives an official description of the film, noting: Maleficent: Mistress of Evil picks up several years after Maleficent and will “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.”
In an extended version of the trailer, after being saved by a horned creature like herself, Maleficent is brought to a clan of horned fairies alike, with the revelation that she is not the only one left of her kind.
Maleficent: Mistress of All Evil will hit theaters October 18th.
