Well, well, well. Maleficent 2 production is underway! Who else is excited to see Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning reprising their roles? Plus we got a look at the cast list, and Michelle Pfeiffer is also joining in the fun.
Michelle Pfeiffer joins the cast as Queen Ingrith. Also joining the production are Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ed Skrein, and Robert Lindsay. Harris Dickinson will be Prince Phillip.
I'm excited that Joachim Rønning will be directing Maleficent 2. I was able to interview him for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. He is a creative director and a nice guy to talk to. I'm thrilled for him to be continuing his work with Disney. Maleficent 2 is written by Linda Wolverton and Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster. The producers are Joe Roth and Angelina Jolie.
Additional cast returning from the 2014 film include: Sam Riley as Diaval, Imelda Staunton as the pixie Knotgrass, Juno Temple as the pixie Thistlewit, and Lesley Manville as the pixie Flittle.
Maleficent 2 picks up several years after the original and continues to explore the complex relationship between Maleficent and soon-to-be Queen, Aurora. Together they form new alliances and face new enemies, all while trying to protect the moors and the magical creatures who live there.
I guess I should make it a point to see the first one then, huh? LOL. I heard great thing about the first one, so I am sure this will be popular.
Another good movie that we will have to go and see. My granddaughter is going to love this movie. Good cast as well.
My daughter and I are SO excited for this movie. We loved the first one. We’ll be seeing this for sure as soon as it comes out.
My family is so excited to see this movie. I know it’s going to be amazing. Can’t wait until it’s in theaters.

I loved Sleeping beauty and was hesitant about the first Maleficent. I’m curious to see how this second movie turns out.
I never saw the first movie but my niece loved it and still talks about it. We will al be happy when this second one comes out and I need to see them both.
Oh wow, I didn’t think the first one did well in the box office enough to merit a second production. I would gladly see it, though!
I am excited for the movie for sure! Michelle Pfeifer is ageless and a great actress too.

I didn’t even realize that a sequel was being considered for Maleficent! Oh what excellent news – and to have Michelle Pfeiffer on board?! It’s going to be an amazing film!
WHAT??? I am so excited about this!! I love the first Malificant movie and I’m sure this one will be just as good!!
Wow! I’ll watch out for this. I love the first Maleficent movie, and I think everyone did. Michelle Pfieffer joining the cast will be another reason for it to be more interesting.
We love the maleficent movie and would love to watch this too. Michelle Pfeifer would be a great addition for sure.
