Back in 2014, Angelina Jolie stunned us all as the powerful fairy from the Moors in Maleficent. Maleficent proved to be a massive box-office success with almost an $800 million worldwide collection. Hence, it comes as no surprise that 2019 will see its sequel release. Titled Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Angelina is back with a bang along with the returning Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville. The Joachim Rønning directorial will also star Harris Dickinson (replacing Brenton Thwaites), Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ed Skrein and Michelle Pfeiffer, report agencies.
It’s Angelina’s transformation to Maleficent that really intrigued the fans as the Oscar-winner was completely unrecognizable! Disney’s official Instagram page took to IG to share a behind-the-scenes video as Jolie transformed into Maleficent and it’s nothing short of astonishing. In the black and white video, we see the no-makeup Angie being primmed with makeup to turn into the powerful fairy while her hair was styled at the same time. The prominent cheekbones came to place along with the black trademark horns. Finally, the classic red lips were added and what we got was Maleficent, in all her flesh and evil smile!
Disney wrote, “She’s back in black! Go behind the horns as Angelina Jolie transforms into #Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. See the film in theaters October 18!”
During the recently held D23 Expo, Angelina got candid about her upcoming release as she shared, “We really pose the question and fight for belief that what’s different makes you stronger. And what is family? What defines a family is what you believe in and how you love and what you stand for. It’s not just blood and it’s not because you are the same”
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is slated to release on October 17, 2019.
