Right? Guess again. Disney has released a new poster for the upcoming sequel to Angelia Jolie’s Maleficent which reveals the movie’s new release date and full title: Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. The highly anticipated dark fantasy flick will now hit cinema screens on October 18th 2019, a huge jump up the calendar from its original May 29th 2020 release date.
The story has been described as:
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 II” 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.”
This is exciting news. The original Maleficent, despite altering the famous backstory of its chief antagonist was widely applauded by fans and critics alike and is well worthy of a sequel.
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil will cast a spell over its audience on October 18th.
