Angelina Jolie Confirmed to Return for 'Maleficent 2'!

Angelina Jolie Pitt is officially returning to star as the villainous Maleficent in the sequel to the 2014 film.

It was announced that the actress would be returning months ago, but the news was just confirmed by Disney as they announced a whole slate of upcoming movies.

Disney has staked out several release dates including July 28, 2017, April 6, 2018, August 3, 2018, December 25, 2018, and December 20, 2019. It is not officially known when Maleficent 2 will be released, though IMDB has May 9, 2017 listed.

Also returning to the Maleficent franchise is Linda Woolverton, who wrote the script for the first film and will take on the duties again.

    Excellent news!

  • busted

    I’m looking forward to seeing her on screen again. It will be interesting how they continue the story.. and YES Angie is going to make major B A N K On this one. Even more than the first. And of course Can’t wait to get my dvd of By the Sea.

    I wonder if she finalized things when she and the kids came back to LA for a few days. I would still like her to do that movie with Graham King.. Unforgiven. It sounded interesting.

  • Observer2

    What makes this news any different than when it was announced a few months ago? Just that Disney has slated dates with no movie titles to go along with them.

    Well, it got us a new thread. LOL

  • Observer2

    Hi FALP!

    We don’t even rate a hello, FALP? :(

  • ali7

    Lol true it was The Wrap which announced months ago that Angie maybe star M2 but in this press release Disney is not confirming that Angie will return for the sequel

  • Bumble

    well at least JJ got her name right this time

  • GroundControl500

    Guess I’ll post this here as well.

  • Observer2

    Is that a boobie cup?

    Errr, that didn’t come out right. LOL

  • GroundControl500

    Curious as to what the storyline will be. I wonder if it will end with another baby being born or maybe having to protect a bunch of kids as in JP kids. They ALL need their SAG cards.

  • wika

    MTE…. I can’t really see it being released in May 2017 though, for some reason.

  • GroundControl500

    Oh, no. It’s as important as a First Place and a Gold Medal and World’s Most Beautiful. Trust me.

  • Observer2

    No, Disney put holds on release dates through 2019. So, who knows.

    We don’t even know how far in the development process it is. Or if the script is even finished and does Angelina like it.

    Look, how long it took Maleficent to get in front of the cameras after it was first announced.

  • Observer2

    No offense, but, none of that sounds good to me. LOL

  • Observer2

    I’ll have to pass, as one of those titles puts me in the vicinity of Ticky. LOL

  • GroundControl500

    Me neither. It could be a M2D trans story – Mal to Dragon.

  • sandra

    So no Maleficent ?

  • wika

    When was it first announced again? So IMDB is talking out of their ass? LOL

  • Observer2

    LMAO!

    I’d love it if she went all evil on us.

  • GroundControl500

    I just received devastating news. My favorite restaurant in town is closing In May. ๐Ÿ’”

  • wika

    Thanks for the new pics of Brad! Man looks too mighty fine. So, so yummy LOL! But knowing who lizzy caplan is playing in the movie, the scene is REALLY a spoiler.. FFS LOL…

  • Angela Johnson

    2017 seems kinda early to me. 2018 seems more like a plausible date.

  • wika

    It’s too vague. They don’t even have the director announced LOL…

  • Observer2

    It was announced in June of 2015.

  • Observer2

    Got you in the feelz?

    I’m sorry because that sucks when that happens.

    What kind of restaurant is it?

  • Observer2

    They didn’t give any of the dates a film to go with them.

    They just listed all of the movies that Disney has in development that might fill those slots.

  • Observer2

    That’s what the Daily Fail should be named.

    The Daily For Fvcks Sake. LOL

  • sandra

    Variety is saying that Maleficent 2 is confirmed. The IMDB date is obviously wrong. I just saw that WWZ 2 is set to be released in June 2017. I also doubt about that release date.

  • wika

    It’s bad enough we know who’s going to die first no thank you to sony hacks and now this other character….. well at least it gets me prepared; I’ll remember to bring a box of tissues LOL

  • Observer2

    The Daily Fail is where failed “journalists” go for a career. LOL

  • Dawne

    Yeah, the ones that bang their prof to get a pass.

  • Observer2

    Just because it’s confirmed doesn’t let us know how far in development it is.

    They don’t have a release date for it. They just held a bunch of dates for a live action movies from the studio.

    There is no director attached. There is no start date for filming announced. There is nada.

    That’s why I asked, what makes this different from when it was first announced back in June?

  • Observer2

    So, not only do they bang their professor to get a pass, but, said professor than hires them for The Daily Fail? LOL

  • sandra

    Unless Angie doesn’t want to do it I bet Mal 2 will be a priority. Its Angelina Jolie we are talking about here.They know that overseas will make a shit of money.

  • wika

    And those dates are in 2018 and 2019. Wonder where IMDB managed to crap 2017 from…

  • busted

    I think more that some outsiders come in to try and take the kingdom. Wonder if some of the other cast will return. That would be great. One of my favorite scenes was when she was battling the King..

  • http://thecompletehistoryofbradandangelina.blogspot.com/ Lady Valeria

    I can’t wait for the second one to come out!!!! I always steal my aunt’s dvd of it, lol!

  • sandra

    So if Uni gave Charlene 10 millions just imagine how Angie will get if this is a new deal.

  • Observer2

    Where do they manage to crap out a lot of what they post?

    Anyone can send things to IMDB and they’ll post it.
