“Maleficent” is back! The new Disney live action film “Maleficent – Lady of Evil” will arrive in theatres on October 17th, starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning. And we see the beautiful and evil Maleficent challenge the new entry Michelle Pfeiffer.
After the 2014 film directed by Robert Stromberg the new feature continues to explore the complex relationship between Maleficent and the future Queen as they form new alliances and face new opponents to protect the forest and the magical creatures that inhabit it.
The weather was kind to Malefica and Aurora. Their relationship, born of betrayal, revenge and finally love, has grown and is strong. Nevertheless there is still hatred between men and magical creatures.
Aurora’s marriage with Prince Philip is a reason for celebrations throughout the Kingdom and in neighbouring lands, as the wedding will unite the two worlds. An unexpected encounter, however, will give life to a new powerful alliance. Malefica and Aurora will meet on opposite sides of a Great War that will test their loyalty and bring them to wonder if they can really be a family.
From the cast of the previous “Maleficent”, including Sam Riley in the role of Fosco, Imelda Staunton in the role of the fairy Giuggiola, Juno Temple in the role of the fairy Verdelia and Lesley Manville in the role of the fairy Fiorina, there are also Michelle Pfeiffer in the role of the Queen Ingrith, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ed Skrein and Robert Lindsay, while Harris Dickinson plays Prince Philip.
