The ‘Maleficient’ Sequel Begins Shooting And We Are Enchanted | Film News
Once upon a dream, Maleficient 2 officially began filming: the fairytale continues and it is once again brought to you by Disney.
Elle Fanning, who will be stepping back into Princess Aurora’s shoes, shared selfies on Instagram with costar Angelina Jolie: “It’s bring your mom to work day on the #Maleficent2 set!!!!!” she jokingly captioned alongside a shot of the duo.
The 20-year-old recently opened up about the prospect of reprising her role as Sleeping Beauty following the 2014’s smash hit Maleficient : “I’ve never done a sequel before, so it should be fun to revisit a character many years later. That is something I’m very excited for. Also, being reunited with Angie is pretty cool. She’s just a powerhouse on set; the way that she works, she just has this power and respect around her”.
In addition to the many cast members who will return from the original movie — that includes Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville — a nice lineup of new actors are expected to be joining the film, such as Michelle Pfeiffer, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Robert Lindsay and Harris Dickinson.
That’s what we call a dream come true.
