In an interview years ago, Niall Horan (in One Direction at the time) made an offhand statement and said ‘today was a busy week for us’. Fans of pop culture can relate to that statement today, more than ever.
News is dropping left and right, really big news at that, and it’s sort of hard to keep up. From the Andrew Lincoln leaving The Walking Dead to Jamie Foxx taking on the role of Spawn and Jessica Chastain joining the cast of IT: Chapter 2, we’ve been overwhelmed today. Some has been a bit heartbreaking while other news has been exciting.
In terms of excitement, news broke today that Maleficent 2 is in production and a new cast member is joining the film. Michelle Pfeiffer will take on the role of Queen Ingrith. Not much is known of her character yet but we imagine we’ll find out more as the weeks progress.
Maleficent saw Angelina Jolie bring a more vulnerable side to the Disney villain. Instead of being a diabolical evil, it’s the world around her that led her to her character’s pain and the actions that followed. It was a performance that allowed for more of Maleficent’s story to be told in a way that would capture audiences around the world. A story we can’t wait to see.
Elle Fanning shared a photo on set with Angelina Jolie with the caption ‘It’s bring your mom to work day.’
The two look like they’re having a blast. In a separate post, Disney shared the first photo from the production set, with three chairs in a beautiful setting. Seriously, we’d love to curl up there with a good book.
Maleficent 2 has no set release date yet, but it’ll definitely be worth the wait.
‘…but I knew him’
