Take a look at the new Maleficent 2: Mistress of Evil movie poster.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is a fantasy adventure that picks up several years after the first Maleficent, in which audiences learned of the events that hardened the heart of Disney’s most notorious villain and drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora. The film continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil also stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Elle Fanning, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ed Skrein, Robert Lindsay, Harris Dickinson, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville.

The new film is directed by Joachim Rønning from a story by Linda Woolverton and a screenplay by Linda Woolverton and Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster. It is produced by Joe Roth, Angelina Jolie and Duncan Henderson with Matt Smith, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Michael Vieira serving as executive producers.
