Everytime I see a new post on this thread, I'm hoping it's to announce the cancellation of the sequel. I thought Disney would have learned already after how Alice's sequel did.

I just realized, if we use the Beauty and the Beast argument for Maleficent having an evil sounding name but not being evil, it doesn't work because we are not supposed to think the Beast's "evil" form is good. The curse is if he doesn't find love he will live in that form forever and having to live in that form is seen as a bad thing. We only accept the Beast being human as right. Maleficent can't do that with the name.

Hopefully he plays a villain who isn't fully irredeemable, because I could totally see him and Jolie having chemistry together. That's unlikely though, because he played a narcissist in Deadpool and I can see them slotting him into the same type here. Too bad. The man is gorgeous, forgive me.

I love Pfeiffer so this is good news to me. Hopefully, her role will be a meaty one.

I love her, too, and it's weird because a lot of people thought she should play Maleficent! I think Jolie was the better fit, though.

I love her as well although I doubt even her inclusion will get me interested in this. Unless she's playing a character like Eris from the Dreamworks Sinbad film. I have no love for that film at all but I loved Eris. Always wish Pfeiffer could have played a Disney villain.

I like Michelle Pfieffer. I remember posting years back on this forum when I was still in middle school that I wasn't a fan, but my opinion's definitely changed over the years. :lol: Both her and Skrein are good casting decisions, imo. Perhaps Pfieffer will play Maleficent's mother? I wanted Jolie from the moment Maleficent was announced to be in the works and I was ecstatic when she was cast (and I thought she did a fantastic job). I never could see Pfieffer in the role of Maleficent myself, but I wouldn't mind her playing a role within the film.

Queen Ingris will be an antagonist to Maleficent but I'm assuming she won't be a villain since Ed Skrien's character is reportedly the villain of the movie.

Quote:
[The sequel] brings back star Angelina Jolie as the title character of Maleficent, as well as Elle Fanning as Aurora. If a deal closes, Pfeiffer would play the role of Queen Ingris an antagonist to Jolie's Maleficent. THS has also learned that production on the film will begin on May 1 in London.

Director Joachim Rønning (without directing partner Espen Sandberg) is helming the film from a script by Jez Butterworth. Butterworth most recently worked on the script for Disney’s other villain film in development Cruella.

No, not at all. I wonder if it'll do even worse than Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Perhaps Skrein plays a subordinate to Pfeiffer's character?

I suspect Pfeiffer will be the real villain, while Ed Skrien will be redeemed at the end and will be Jolie’s love interest as Disney’s Divinity first mentioned. Maleficent wasn’t very lucky in love in the first film, so I imagine they maybe want to compensate her in the sequel. Perhaps he has “turned to the dark side” because of some traumatic event similar to Maleficent’s case and only seeks revenge, and she will help him turn good again. That's my guessing, but maybe they have something completely different planned.

They've recast Prince Philip!

Harris Dickinson Joins Cast as The Prince in Recasting

Source: http://variety.com/2018/film/news/harri ... 202795643/

I liked Harris Dickinson in Trust and Clique, so I'm fairly happy about this casting.

Also, Michelle Pheiffer's character will be prince Philip's mother! Interesting. Maybe they're adapting the second part of Perrault's version of the fairy tale, where the prince has an evil mother who wants to kill his and Sleeping Beauty's children?

Ugh. I hate it when they recast characters. I hope they at least try to make him look like the character as portrayed by Brenton and use the same hair style and eye color.

I doubt they'll go as far as having his mother want to eat their kids (could you imagine? :lol: ) but it would be interesting to see how they'll adapt other story elements from Perrault's version.

Aw, I loved Thwaites as the prince! :( I wonder what the reason for the re-cast even was? He must've been busy with another film, because he just worked for Disney as recently as PotC: Dead Me Tell No Tales last year.

Scheduling conflicts. He's starring as Robin on DC Universe's upcoming series "Titans".

I don't think there's ever been an adaptation of this part of the story so I would be mildly interested if they went that route. It's clearly a big role so I can see them setting her up as a rival for Maleficent but since they did confirm that Ed Skrein is the villain, she might not be playing the big bad after all.
