"Maleficent 2" In 2020

Director Joachim Ronning's "Maleficent" sequel at Disney, starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning, is now targeting a May 29, 2020 release:

"Maleficent" (2014), directed by Robert Stromberg from a screenplay by Linda Woolverton, starred Jolie as 'Maleficent' with Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville in supporting roles.

Maleficent is an evil fairy and self-proclaimed 'Mistress of All Evil', who, after not being invited to a christening...

...curses the infant 'Princess Aurora' to "prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die" before the sun sets on Aurora's sixteenth birthday.

Loosely inspired by the twisted fairy godmother character in author Charles Perrault's original fairy tale and the adapted Disney animated feature "Sleeping Beauty" (1959) ...

"...'Maleficent' portrays the story from the perspective of the antagonist, depicting her conflicted relationship with the princess and the ruler of a corrupt kingdom..."
