Maleficent: Mistress of Evil trailer — Angelina Jolie must protect Elle Fanning from new threats in Disney's sequel
Directed by Joachim Rønning, Maleficent:Mistress of Evil returns with Angelina Jolie as the titular evil witch, and Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora for the sequel to 2014 box-office hit
Disney has released the official trailer of Maleficent:Mistress of Evil, a sequel to the global box office hit Maleficent. Directed by Joachim Rønning, the film features Angelina Jolie as the titular evil witch and Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora, who fans know from the classic tale of Sleeping Beauty.
While the first instalment ended with a reconciliation between the black horned witch and Princess Aurora, the sequel shows their peace at stake when Maleficent forbids Aurora to marry Prince Philip. "Love doesn't always work out well," warns Aurora's godmother. "Trust me, let us prove you wrong," the princess counters, then proceeds to plan her wedding, incurring Maleficent's wrath.
The new footage also shows Michelle Pfeiffer’s character as Prince Philip's mother Queen Ingrith, who attempts to stake her claim as Aurora’s guardian. With these new alliances, Aurora and Maleficen are pulled apart to opposing sides. It is a test of their loyalties, further causing them to question whether they can truly be family.
Later in the clip, Ingrith tells Aurora, “Maleficent is a threat to everyone. We will do our best to protect you.”
