What We Know So Far

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil left us with a cliffhanger ending that hinted at a potential sequel.

This sets the stage for an exciting new chapter in the story.

Filming and Release Date

The Return of the Iconic Cast

Angelina Jolie’s return as Maleficent is already confirmed, but the rest of the cast has yet to be finalized. One key fan favorite is Elle Fanning, who portrays the beloved character of Aurora.

Exploring the Maleficent Universe

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil expanded the Maleficent universe by introducing new elements and characters. We learned that Maleficent’s powers stem from a phoenix, and we were introduced to the Dark Fey, a race of beings living in exile due to conflicts with humans. This rich mythology opens up a world of possibilities for the third installment.

A Clash of Worlds

The second movie saw a clash between the fairies and humans, with Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer) seeking revenge on the magical Moors. The battle between the two groups led to a dramatic conflict, with Maleficent ultimately sacrificing herself to save her kind. However, Aurora’s tears brought her back to life, albeit in the form of a phoenix. The resolution of this conflict sets the stage for new adventures and challenges in Maleficent 3.
