It’s been a while since we’ve seen any news from Maleficent 2, the sequel to the very popular reimagining of Sleeping Beauty. Starring Angelina Jolie, the film pictured the title character as a protagonist who was wronged by a scheming king who took her wings away thereby taking her powers away. She would eventually get them back, and like most fairy tale endings, they all lived happily ever after.
But there was no way that a huge success like that wouldn’t be followed up with a sequel. And that’s what we are getting. The sequel has a brand new title and now will go by Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. Not only that, but there is a new release date and a teaser poster. Check them all out below.
Netflix has announced a massive voice cast for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, a prequel series based on Jim Henson‘s 1982 hit The Dark Crystal.
The voice cast is led by Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Nathalie Emmanuel, who play the show’s three Gelfling heroes (seen above), named Rian, Brea, and Deet. But there are so many more familiar names involved, as well.
You can find the lengthy list of who else is voicing characters in Age of Resistance below, along with the full images of the three lead characters.
The live-action adaptation of Maleficent, the Angelina Jolie-starring vehicle, was one of the first of many films to go from animation to live-action. And since its release, the studio has been working on getting a sequel off the ground.
Now that is happening. Production for Maleficent II has started, and there are a couple of new casting announcements. The first is that Michelle Pfeiffer will be joining Jolie and Elle Fanning, both of whom are reprising their respective roles. More on the story below.
A couple of years back now we found out that Kung Fu Panda 2 and Kung Fu Panda 3 director Jennifer Yuh Nelsonhad signed on to direct The Darkest Minds. The movie, which was written by Chad Hodge (Good Behavior, Wayward Pines), is an adaptation of author Alexandra Bracken‘s novel of the same name, which is part of an existing trilogy (with a new book on the way) that will no doubt be used in sequels should this perform well at the box office.
Now 20th Century Fox has released an official trailer for the movie, which stars Amandla Stenberg, Harris Dickinson, Skylan Brooks, Miya Cech, Mandy Moore, and Gwendoline Christie. Producing is Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Arrival) and Dan Levine (Arrival, Along Came Polly).
