Disney has released the first teaser trailer and a chunky synopsis for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil – sequel to the 2014 film that gave us a backstory for the infamous Sleeping Beauty villain.
Angelina Jolie returns in the title role alongside Elle Fanning as Aurora, and their relationship is far from simple.
"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, Maleficent II 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."
Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones, Deadpool) is set to join the sequel as a currently unnamed villain, while Michelle Pfeiffer will play Queen Ingrith.
