Disney has shared the synopsis for the sequel to ‘Maleficent’ which you can read below:
“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is a fantasy adventure that picks up several years after “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.”

We know that for Maleficent, “love doesn’t always end well” as she so clearly states in this trailer, and it seems that preventing her child from getting married will be a cornerstone for the film. Having Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith vying for guardianship over Elle Fanning’s Princess Aurora should also be fun to see play out on the big screen.
