Angelina Jolie is set to return as the titular evil fairy in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil – and here’s our first peek at it.

As well as Jolie, the spinoff from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty universe will see the return of Elle Fanning, Imelda Staunton and Juno Temple. They’ll have alongside them the likes of Michelle Pfieffer, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Ed Skrein.

This one’s set several years after the first film, and “continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.”

OK then!

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is slated for an October 17 Australian cinema release.
