Elle Fanning has been set to star alongside Angelina Jolie in the sequel to Maleficent. The movie, which was a massive surprise success at the box office, was bound to get the sequel treatment. The movie was a more lighthearted portrayal of the Sleeping Beauty villain, and Angelina Jolie nailed the role.
It’s been four years since the movie was released, and for the most part, it has remained pretty quiet on whether or not this movie would ever start production. Well, now we have our confirmation. Elle Fanning took to Instagram to post a fun picture of her and her co-star! Check out the posts below:
Seeing Jolie helm the role of Maleficent again is rather exciting. When it comes to these films, I don’t pay too much attention but her acting is mesmerizing. You can’t help but get sucked into the movies she stars in. Hopefully Maleficent 2 doesn’t get the same treatment that Alice Through the Looking Glass got and completely bomb the box office. We will have to wait and see!
The film hasn’t yet started production but is likely to within this year. The film is directed by Joachim Rønning, while the script is relying on the skill of Jez Butterworth, and Linda Woolverton. Angeline Jolie will return to her role as Maleficent with Elle Fanning and Ed Skrein joining her in the cast! Are you excited for the Maleficent 2? Let us know over at SuperBroMovies! – JB Baker
