Maleficent and Aurora are about to experience one hell of a fallout in the sequel.
A big new trailer has arrived for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, which this time finds our titular dark fairy (Angelina Jolie) losing it when Aurora (Elle Fanning) announces she is to marry Prince Phillip. It’s not just the impending marriage that’s got her peeved, but also the new mother figure that’s come into Aurora’s life: the conniving Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer).
We get a solid amount of plot in the new look below, including a reveal of Maleficent’s own kind. “You’ve spent years caring for a human,” says a new character played by Chiwetel Ejiofor. “Now it’s time to care for your own.”
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, also starring Ed Skrein, Sam Riley, Harris Dickinson, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville, arrives in Australian cinemas on October 17 and hits the US on October 18.
