Magnificent? More like Maleficent! On Wednesday, March 6, Walt Disney Studios tweeted the official promotional poster for Angelina Jolie’s highly anticipated sequel Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and … she looks fierce! Donning black horns, black wings and a striking shade of red lipstick, the actress, 43, has fans going crazy for the villain’s comeback.
“This is the best news I’ve received all day. All smiles! Wicked stoked,” one user commented. “Say what you want about the quality of the first movie, but this was the role Angelina Jolie was born to play!” added another.

According to the official description of the film, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil will pick up right where the first film left off and continue to explore “the complex relationship” of Maleficent and Aurora (played by Elle Fanning) as they face “new threats” in the magical land of the Moors.
Sounds pretty legit, if you ask us. Here’s hoping that Disney drops that trailer soon. We’re dying to see Angelina do her thing on-screen. And speaking of her doing her thing, the mother-of-six has been all about parenting these days. “Her focus is 100 percent on her children, and they love it,” an insider told In Touch magazine. “She’s never been more relaxed and at ease. It’s like she’s a whole new person.”
Balancing a big career with a big family? Yeah, that’s basically Angelina’s middle name. On February 25, the proud mama of Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 12, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 10, made a rare red carpet appearance with her entire darling brood. “Angie knows how blessed she is to be able to show her kids the world,” the source noted. “Her hope is that they grow up to be caring individuals who want to make the world a better place.” We have no doubt that her hope will become a reality.
