That’s a wrap on Maleficent 2 – and what a ride it’s been! A big thank you to this amazing UK crew for spending the summer with me at Pinewood Studios – so close to Heathrow, yet so far away 🙂 I hope you all get some well deserved time off before your next adventure ✨✨✨ #maleficent2 @disney

Here is the films official synopsis.
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.
Maleficent II will hit theaters on May 29, 2020.
