Confirmed: Disney's 'Maleficent II' is in development
Angelina Jolie expected to reprise her role
A Maleficent sequel is on its way as writer, Linda Woolverton, pens new script deal for the second instalment of Disney's modern fairytale. The first instalment took an impressive $760 million at the box office, largely thanks to the star draw of Angelina Jolie, who played the eponymous hero/villain.
Jolie is expected to reprise her role as the magical fairytale character, Maleficent, and is being kept up to date with script development, although she has not yet confirmed that will be signing on for the second film. Perhaps her brood of six children can help Disney out and persuade her to get on board?
