The Maleficent sequel is currently in the midst of filming, and co-stars Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie are having a blast with it.
Maleficent 2 is currently being filmed in London, and Elle (who plays Aurora) took this opportunity to take a few amazing photos of the pair for their Instagram fans.
Soon after the first film was released in 2014, Jolie was quick to suggest that a second film may be in the mix, which was officially confirmed in 2016. Filming has finally started 2 years later.
Disney have released the official synopsis of the plot, saying it’s “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.”
We’re going to see some big names in the cast list including Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingris, Harris Dickinson as the Prince, and Ed Skrein as the new villain. Other actors include Jenn Murray from Fantastic Beasts, Kae Alexander from Ready Player One, and Hollyoaks star Fernanda Diniz.
