Angelina Jolie Confirms ‘Maleficent 3’ Despite Wanting out of Hollywood

Disney officially greenlights ‘Maleficent 3,’ starring Angeline Jolie. Jolie has confirmed her return as the iconic Maleficent in the third installment based on Disney’s beloved animated classic, Sleeping Beauty.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Jolie, known for her roles in “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” and “Tomb Raider,” has already signed on for the live-action Maleficent 3. However, despite her commitment to the film, she expressed interest in potentially stepping back from Hollywood.

Plot details and additional casting for “Maleficent 3” remain under wraps. Still, Jolie’s involvement ensures another exciting chapter for fans of the franchise.

While specific details are scarce, it’s likely that Elle Fanning will reprise her role as Sleeping Beauty, along with Harris Dickinson as Prince Phillip and Sam Riley as Diaval.

Amidst Disney’s evolving strategy to prioritize its self-owned intellectual properties, “Maleficent 3” signals the studio’s commitment to its established franchises. Disney aims to strengthen its lineup with projects like the upcoming Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, while some previously planned reboots like the Spiderwick Chronicles have been redirected from Disney+.

As of now, “Maleficent 3” awaits an official release date, promising to captivate audiences once again with its enchanting tale.
