Disney has released the trailer for the hotly anticipated flick, 'Maleficent 2: Mistress of Evil.'
Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning return as the dark fairy Maleficent and Princess Aurora, respectively. The sequel comes five years after the release of 'Maleficent,' the dark story of 'Sleeping Beauty.'
The fantasy adventure 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. The film continues to 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.
As well as Jolie and Fanning, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sam Riley, Harris Dickinson, Ed Skrein, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville also star in the movie.
'Maleficent: Mistress of Evil' opens in U.S. theaters on Oct. 18, 2019.
