Disney announced on Tuesday that the filming of “Maleficent II” began. Almost exactly four years after the original hit shows. Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning will again play their roles.
The new film is gaining strength several years after the original, following Maleficenta and Princess Aurora, as they “form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the swamps and magical creatures that live in these marshes.”
Michelle Pfeiffer also officially signed the contract as Queen Ingrith, and Harris Dickinson (Prince Phillip) will play Prince Philip. (Phillip was the lover of the Aurora in the original animated “Sleeping Beauty”).
Fanning celebrated the news by publishing a few behind-the-scenes shots, where she and Jolie are wearing a dressing gown and horns about an actor’s trailer.
