Following on from the initial teaser, a brand new trailer for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil has been unveiled.

The sequel, which picks up the story several years later from the 2014 original, promises even more drama than ever before. The beautiful trailer sees Aurora getting engaged to Prince Phillip, with Queen Ingrith prepared to take Maleficent’s place as a “proper mother figure” to Aurora. However, Maleficent is having none of it and as you can imagine, she doesn’t go down without a fight and even comes face to face with members of her own species.

The official movie synopsis reads, “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is 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. The film 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.”
