Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Actress Michelle Pfeifer teased her new royal role for fans on Instagram. The 60 year old actress unveiled her character, Queen Ingrith, in the upcoming Disney flick ‘Maleficent 2’ co-starring Angelina Jolie as the title character and Elle Fanning as Aurora.
The ‘Maleficent’ sequel is a spinoff to the popular Disney classic ‘Sleeping Beauty’ where it is set as a prologue on how the evil queen Maleficent came to curse Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) and her Kingdom. The movie earned $758.5 million in the box office and scored an Academy Award nomination for Best Costume Design.
Jolie hinted on a sequel in 2014 and was only officially confirmed the year after. In addition to the follow up, Pfeifer has joined the cast as a queen but details about her role have not yet been revealed.
She captioned her tease on her newly created Instagram,
“A little tease of Queen Ingrith #Maleficent2.” She can be seen half-faced with her blonde hair pulled back. Her flawless face made up in a smokey eye and red lips whilst framed in a headdress of pearls.
Other teases for the upcoming movie have only been revealed by Elle Fanning on her Instagram where she is seen taking candid selfies on set in a bathrobe with Jolie photobombing her in full Maleficent garb. She wrote on the caption, “ultimate photobomb.”
The cast will also include Harris Dickinson as Prince Phillip (replacing Brenton Thwaites who was unable to reprise his role due to scheduling conflicts), Chiwetel Ejiofor (who previously worked with Jolie on ‘Salt’), Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, Lesley Manville, and Ed Skrein.
The film is set to release in 2020.
