Having grossed over 700 million worldwide it was inevitable that a sequel would happen.
Pre-production has already began on Maleficent 2 with Joachim R∅nning, who is best known for directing Pirates of the Caribbean, stepping in as director while Joe Roth returns as a producer. Linda Woolverton is also back to create the screenplay alongside Jez Butterworth, who has worked on such movies as Spectre and Edge of Tomorrow.
This time around Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning are joined by Ed Skrein (Deadpool) who is set to play a villain, while Michelle Pfeiffer is in talks to sign on as the Queen.
It’s not yet known where the story will pick up in the sequel but we will find out soon enough as filming is set to start later this year.
