Maleficent 3 Release Date: Everything We Need to Know!

Will there ever be a Maleficent 3? Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil was not a box office smash, so will there ever be a Maleficent 3? Angelina Jolie plays the main character in the franchise, which is based on the famous Sleepy Beauty story. Maleficent premiered in 2014, and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil will be released in October 2019.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil follows up five years after the death of King Stefan, the father of Aurora (Elle Fanning), the “Sleeping Beauty” who now reigns as Queen of the Moors. The young woman intends to marry her beloved Philip, Prince of Ulstead (Harris Dickinson), but she is unaware of how much his mother, Queen Ingrid (Michelle Pfeiffer), despises the Moors, fairy culture, and, in particular, Maleficent.

Maleficent 3: Mistress of Evil Characters & Cast

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil delves into Maleficent’s fight with the power-hungry Queen Ingrid. The plot of the film features a subplot about Maleficent’s Dark Fae ancestry, which leads to a final conflict that does not end well for the Queen of Alstead. Here’s everything you need to know about Walt Disney’s Maleficient 3.

Will Maleficent 3 Be Made By Disney?

Based on the success of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Disney is likely to approve the third installment. The original Maleficent, which cost between $180 and $260 million to produce, grossed over $750 million in theatres and garnered mainly positive reviewer reviews.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, on the other hand, has not met projections at the box office (less than $500 million at the time of writing). However, once 2019 comes to a close, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil may barely edge above the $500 million barrier, securing a profit for the studio. Given that ordinary moviegoers have responded well to the sequel, and that there is always the possibility of increased merchandising income, it appears likely that Disney will continue through with Maleficient 3.

When Will Maleficent 3 Be Released?

Maleficient 3 will not be released until 2022, at the earliest, due to the franchise’s ambitious production scope. If Disney maintains its current development timeline, a 2024 release date appears to be the most likely. Maleficient 3 will very certainly have a new director, following the replacement of Robert Stromberg by Joachim Running for the sequel.

Fans should expect Linda Woolverton to rewrite the screenplay, although Disney may choose to stick with the pattern from the first film and have Woolverton write it herself. Noah Harpster and Micah Fitzerman-Blue co-wrote the sequel’s script, and it’s worth noting that Jez Butterworth (Ford v Ferrari) was hired for a re-write at one time. In general, critics and average moviegoers tend to enjoy the franchise’s visual appeal, but the script proved to be a source of concern for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’s detractors.

What Could The Story Of Maleficent 3 Be?

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil concludes with a battle between the troops of the Dark Fae and Alstead. Maleficent nearly murders Queen Ingrith but saves her life after hearing Aurora’s pleadings for mercy. Unsurprisingly, Queen Ingrid seizes the opportunity and shoots an arrow at Maleficent, but the strategy backfires as the Dark Fae leader transforms into the mythical Phoenix.

Queen Ingrid panics and throws Aurora down a castle cliff, but Maleficent/Phoenix saves the day and swiftly transforms the Queen into a small goat. In terms of Maleficent 3, the sequel delivers a feeling of closure for Queen Ingrid.

Still, the character might return, if only for Pfeiffer’s on-screen personality and franchise appeal as a baddie. The third film will most likely focus on Aurora and Philip’s marriage, with a new villain capable of commanding the screen like Jolie. According to critics, moviegoers are anticipating that Maleficent 3 will be more focused on plot than spectacle.
