Disney’s Maleficent II Starts Filming; Full Cast Confirmed

<img src="https://https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Angelina-Jolie-in-Maleficent.jpg" /><p>Disney has officially begun filming the live-action sequel to <em>Maleficent</em>, which is now formally titled <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/maleficent-2/"><strong><em>Maleficent II</em></strong></a>. The original <em>Maleficent</em> was released in theaters in 2014 and stars Angelina Jolie as the eponymous horned fairy, opposite Elle Fanning as Sleeping Beauty herself, Princess Aurora. <em>Maleficent</em>, unlike the Mouse House's 1959 animated <em>Sleeping Beauty</em> film, paints the titular villain in a far more sympathetic light, portraying her as more of a victim of circumstance who turns evil after suffering a horrific betrayal at the hands of her childhood sweetheart – Aurora's own father, King Stefan (Sharlto Copley).</p><p>Since King Stefan, in classic Disney villain fashion, fell to his death at the end of <em>Maleficent</em>, Copley won't be reprising his role in the sequel. Jolie and Fanning are both back, however, and are joined in <em>Maleficent II</em> by big name actors like <a href="https://screenrant.com/maleficent-2-michelle-pfeiffer-cast/">Michelle Pfeffier as Queen Ingrith</a>, a new addition to the story. Also joining the <em>Maleficent</em> ensemble in the followup is Jolie's <em>Salt</em> costar and <em>Doctor Strange</em> veteran <a href="https://screenrant.com/maleficent-2-cast-chiwetel-ejiofor/">Chiwetel Ejiofor</a> as a character whose name remains under-wraps for the time being, but is rumored to be a romantic foil for Jolie's (formerly?) dark fairy in the film.</p> <strong>Click to continue reading <a href="https://screenrant.com/maleficent-2-cast-synopsis-filming/">Disney's Maleficent II Starts Filming; Full Cast Confirmed</a></strong><br /><br /> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://screenrant.com/maleficent-2-cast-synopsis-filming/">Disney's Maleficent II Starts Filming; Full Cast Confirmed</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://screenrant.com/">ScreenRant</a>
