Disney is currently working hard on Maleficent 3! Actress Angelina Jolie confirmed this in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. Although she still keeps a lot under lock and key, we can at least look forward to a new sequel.
In 2014, Angelina Jolie took on the role of the evil Maleficent from the animated film Sleeping Beauty for the first time. The live-action was an immediate success and the second part of the Maleficent series followed in 2019.
Not from Sleeping Beauty
In the series, the story of Princess Aurora is told from the perspective of the evil fairy Maleficent. In the 1950s animated film, this villain had cursed the princess, causing her to fall into a deep sleep. In the ‘real’ parts it is slightly different and went deeper into Maleficent’s background.
In the Wall Street Journal, Jolie now confirms that the third part is indeed in the works at Disney. Perhaps quite striking, because the actress actually no longer wanted to be so involved with films and series.
Unfortunately, Jolie hasn’t revealed anything about the filming, cast members, or even a possible release date. All we know at this point is that a third installment of Maleficent is in development! The other two parts can be streamed on Disney+ until then.
