Whether you were a fan of the Mistress of All Evil’s stand alone film or not, it looks like we can expect the sequel to 2014’s Maleficent sooner rather than later.
It was announced on Friday, January 12th that Jolie would begin filming Maleficent 2 on April 16th. This announcement came after Jolie’s decision to pursue Disney’s sequel instead of Universal’s The Bride of Frankenstein. Universal is hoping to relaunch their iconic monster films with their “Dark Universe,” but with The Mummy‘s less than stellar performance at the box office, it seems like Jolie’s decision was a simple one.
There’s still no news on an official release date. We do know Norwegian director, Joachim Rønning, has signed on alongside Jolie. Stay here at The Geekiverse for all updates on this film.
Are you excited about this news? Is Maleficent your favorite villain? Do you think there should be a sequel or was the original just not good enough? Let us know!
