Walking in to see Maleficent in the theater back in 2014, I certainly didn’t know what to expect. However, the juxtaposition provided by Angelina Jolie (Maleficent), Elle Fanning (Aurora), and Director Robert Stromberg definitely sent my imagination soaring, and heightened my anticipation for each of the Disney live-action remakes that followed.
Admittedly, Maleficent II Director Joachim Rønning has a tough act to follow for the sequel, but — judging simply by the social media surrounding the film — this movie remained a labor of love.
A bit of a peek at the set design for the wrap photo:
And Elle Fanning shows off her golden locks one last time. Note her t shirt.
I remain cautiously optimistic for this go-around, particularly because of the inclusion of Michelle Pfeiffer and Juno Temple. However, we have quite a while to wait, as the movie doesn’t debut until May 2020.
