Have you heard that production is underway for Maleficent II?! I absolutely love this first movie and can’t wait to see this sequel! I think Angelina Jolie did a fantastic job as Maleficent! I think one of my favorite parts was when she would refer to Aurora as “beastly”.
Since we are a part of the Disney Movie Blogger network, here is some fun and just released information about Maleficent II!

Synopsis of Maleficent II:
A fantasy adventure that picks up several years after “Maleficent,” in which audiences learned of the events that hardened the heart of Disney’s most notorious villain and drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora, “Maleficent II” continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen, as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.
