Fans of the enchanting and darkly captivating world of Maleficent have been buzzing with anticipation as they eagerly await news of the release date for Maleficent 3. The film series, centered around the iconic Disney villainess, played by the incomparable Angelina Jolie, has left audiences enchanted with its unique take on the classic Sleeping Beauty tale.

As the clamor for the third installment grows, the burning question on everyone’s mind is: When can we expect the release of Maleficent 3?

When Will Maleficent 3 Be Released?

According to WSJ Magazine, Maleficent 3 is happening, and Angelina Jolie has officially joined the project. Despite expressing a wish to retire from acting, the Oscar winner is scheduled to reprise her role as the legendary villain from Sleeping Beauty.

Though there have been speculations about a Maleficent 3 film, Disney has yet to confirm any of these. Though this may appear to be bad news, the House of Mouse has done nothing to quell these reports, thus there is still hope for the Fae’s continued story.

If Disney approves it conversations with star Angelina Jolie would need to take place, writers would need to be hired, and a director would need to be sought. For a huge endeavor like this, all of this takes time. If it goes ahead, it won’t be until the fall or winter of 2025.

However, we think that ‘no news is good news.’ We haven’t heard anything about any official planning, so there’s a chance it won’t happen.

Who Will Be in the Cast of Maleficent 3?

We are convinced that Maleficent 3 would not be made if Angelina Jolie did not star as the eponymous evil. We’d also like to see Elle Fanning and other familiar celebrities return.

Here is the list of expected cast members in season 3:

  • Angelina Jolie as Maleficent
  • Elle Fanning as Aurora
  • Chiwetel Ejiofor as Conall
  • Sam Riley as Diaval
  • Ed Skrein as Borra
  • Harris Dickinson as Prince Phillip

What Will Happen in Maleficent 3?

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil concludes with a battle between the troops of the Dark Fae and Ulstead. Maleficent nearly murders Queen Ingrith but saves her life after hearing Aurora’s pleadings for mercy.

Unsurprisingly, Queen Ingrith seizes the opportunity and shoots an arrow at Maleficent, but the strategy backfires as the Dark Fae leader transforms into the mythical Phoenix. Queen Ingrith 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 how Mistress of Evil sets up Maleficent 3, the second installment gives Queen Ingrith a feeling of closure. Still, the character might return, if only for Pfeiffer’s on-screen personality and franchise appeal as a baddie.
