The Mistress of All Evil is coming back to the big screen!
Angelina Jolie will be returning for Maleficent 2, Disney announced on Monday, April 25 after months of speculation. The 40-year-old actress previously starred as Maleficent in 2014's hit live-action film Maleficent.

The news of Angelina's return to the franchise is somewhat of a shock considering the mom-of-six has been lackluster about the idea in the past. "I don't know [if I would reprise my role]," she told USA Today two years ago. "I enjoyed [making the movie]. I just feel like we did this one thoroughly and I don't think there [will] be another."
The upcoming film — the release date has yet to be announced — will reportedly be penned by Linda Woolverton, who wrote the first movie.
