People are now wondering who will join them in this sequel, but it has been confirmed that veteran actress Michelle Pfeiffer will actually be joining this much-awaited sequel as Queen Ingrid, there is not much detail that was revealed who her character really is, so obviously the fans will just have to wait and see whether she will be a queen in the human world or the fairy world.
Another addition in the film may be Academy Award nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor, who is said to be set as Maleficent’s love interest, however, this has neither been confirmed nor denied by anyone involved into the film. However, Jenn Murray from “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them,” and David Gyasi of “Interstellar,” are both confirmed to be joining the sequel. The raven Diaval who is portrayed by Sam Riley will also be back for this upcoming film.
