Angelina Jolie is back as Maleficent, the Disney villain who practically invented "tfw big mood."
Robert Stromberg's 2014 live-action film Maleficent explored the classic tale of a princess (Elle Fanning) who, on her sixteenth birthday, pricked her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fell into a deep sleep from which she would never awaken, thanks to a vengeful and powerful fairy by the name of Maleficent (Angelina Jolie). It was a pretty big hit for Disney so, even though the story wrapped up nicely, a sequel is on the way later this year.
The follow-up film finds Maleficent plunging back into a vintage dark mood after clashing with Michelle Pfeiffer's Queen Ingrith over the ongoing issues surrounding the protection of the moors. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Robert Lindsay, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, and Juno Temple also star.
Mistress of Evil also has a fresh director
