After grossing of $240 million at the domestic box office alone, Maleficent was a hit in 2014; but after four years fans have still been asking when they can expect a sequel.
Maleficent 2 was announced among other announcements from Disney, including the fact that one of Marvel’s upcoming movies (which has not been named is due to be moved from July 30, 2021 to February 12, 2021. That being said, Maleficent 2 is scheduled for May 29, 2020 and though the release is still a couple of years away, according to Walt Disney Studio’s Twitter it is already in production!
But where would Maleficent 2 be without Angelina Jolie? Not to worry: Both Jolie and Elle Fanning will be returning in the 2020 sequel alone with Michelle Pfeiffer, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Ed Skrein. Though, sadly, Robert Stromber, the directed of the 2014 Maleficent, is not part of the crew; Joachim Ronning, known for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, will take his stead.
Regardless, whether you are a fan of the first film, the actors, or fantasy in general Maleficent 2 is sure to be yet another Disney hit.
