This morning, Disney released the full length trailer for Maleficent: Mistress of All Evil, a continuation of the 2014 Sleeping Beauty prequel, and it’s safe to say we’re in for a wicked adventure. Angelina Jolie is back as her iconic, horned titular character while Elle Fanning returns as the sweet-natured Princess Aurora.
The two-minute clip opens with Prince Phillip (Harris Dickinson) proposing to Aurora. “Five years ago, I thought I lost you forever,” he says. “There is no curse that could ever tear me away from you.” Alas, their happy news is hardly met with glee from Maleficent.
“Love doesn’t always end well,” she warns, later shouting, “This is no union! There will be no wedding!” A happily ever after isn’t the only thing that seems to be tearing apart Maleficent and Aurora. There’s also Michelle Pfeiffer’s Queen Ingrith—Aurora’s soon-to-be mother-in-law—who hopes to unite the neighboring kingdoms at any cost. Cue the magical war.
