Another amazing thing that surprised everyone is how it managed to reach over $700 million at the box office by just having $180 million as their budget.

Pressure is now on the team to make its sequel as good as or better than the first one.
Maleficent Takes Two
After almost 4 years of waiting, the fans will finally get what they have been waiting for, the news about Maleficent 2 finally happening.

Disney also confirmed it on their official Twitter account by sharing Fanning’s pictures on set with Angelina Jolie. The 20-year-old actress shared a photo of her and Jolie on the set with the caption, “It’s bring your mom to work day on the #Maleficent2 set!”
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. The film is said to be led by director Joachim Ronning, who was the man behind another Disney film, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.”
Disney has yet to announce when exactly the release date of this much-awaited film will be. However, there are rumors that it will actually be out in the summer of 2020 since the cast has already started filming.
