AceShowbiz - Michelle Pfeiffer has offered a glimpse of her character in "Maleficent 2". The 60-year-old actress took to her Instagram account to share a photo of her character, Queen Ingrith, in the long-awaited sequel to the 2014 hit movie.
The photo only shows half of Pfeiffer's face, which is captured in close-up range. She looks regal with an elaborate headpiece featuring a beaded medallion above her ear with pearls and beads hanging down from it. She appears to wear a silver gown.
Queen Ingrith is described as the wife of King John and the mother of Prince Phillip, whose kiss of true love helped reverse the sleeping curse on Aurora in the first movie. Despite her relation to a protagonist character, it seems that Queen Ingrith is set as an antagonist character since early casting report said that she would set up some epic scenes between her and Angelina's dark fairy Maleficent.
The official synopsis for the "Maleficent" sequel has not been released yet, but the movie will continue to explore the complex relationship of Maleficent and Aurora as they face new threats to the magical land of the Moors.
Angelina Jolie returns as the titular dark fairy, while Elle Fanning reprises her role as Aurora. Other returning actors include Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville. Harris Dickinson replaces Brenton Thwaites as Prince Phillip, with Ed Skrein, Chiwetel Ejiofor and more being added to the cast in new roles.
The movie was filmed in London over the summer of 2018, under the direction of Joachim Ronning. The script is written by Linda Woolverton, Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster, with Jolie and Joe Roth serving as producers.
The fantasy drama film is set to head to theaters across the nation on May 29, 2020.
