‘Maleficent’, launched in 2014 and was an enormous public success – with revenues of 750 million dollars worldwide. It was meant as a return of the studio in the fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty” with a version seen but from the perspective of the villain, played by Angelina Jolie.
Angelina Jolie was involved in the project by starring and being the executive producer, but also in costume design and aesthetics of the main character. Is not yet known who will be the director of the second part of the film. Robert Stromberg is the one who made the first ‘Maleficent’.
Disney took advantage of the announcement made monday to confirm that prepares to release sequels and other successful movies of the studio as ‘Cruella de Vill’ ( Emma Stone), ‘Dumbo’ (directed by Tim Burton), ‘Tinker Bell’ (Reese Witherspoon) or ‘Mary Poppins 2’ (Emily Blunt and Lin – Manuel Miranda) and ‘The Jungle Book 2’ (again with Jon Favreau as director).
