Production on the sequel of Disney’s blockbuster hit, Maleficent, was announced by Disney Tuesday, four years after the original premiered.
The happy occasion for fans and actors alike, Elle Fanning took to social media, sharing candid behind-the-scenes snaps of herself and co-star Angelina Jolie.
The adorable snaps show the 20-year-old starlet and her on-screen villainous mom back together, looking cuter than ever as they reprise their roles as Maleficent and Princess Aurora, respectively.
The pics feature Angelina in her character’s signature horns and red lipstick.
In one of the photos, captioned “Ultimate Photobomb,” Fanning sports a pair of sunglasses while Jolie, hides behind her with only her character’s horns visible. In a second snap, hilariously captioned “It’s bring your mom to work day on the #Maleficent2 set!!!!!” Angelina is seen smiling and giving the peace sign.
The sequel picks up several years after the original, following Maleficent and Princess Aurora as they “form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.”
Also joining the project are Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith, Harris Dickinson as Prince Phillip, Aurora’s love interest, as well as Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ed Skrein, and Robert Lindsay.
