Angelina Jolie Is Returning to the Big Screen in ‘Maleficent 2’
Angelina Jolie is back (on the big screen), and she's reprising her seriously sinister role in Disney’s Maleficent 2.
During an interview at the Telluride Film Festival, Jolie announced she's returning from her acting hiatus and will appear in an upcoming sequel of the megahit villain origin story, Maleficent 2. “I am now the breadwinner for the family so it’s time. We have been working on the script and this is going to be a really strong sequel,” she told Deadline.
Jolie’s return will mark her first on-screen appearance since she directed and acted in By the Sea in 2015, which also starred her now ex-husband Brad Pitt. Although she has helmed a number of films as of late—including First They Killed My Father—the star’s main focus over the past two years has been her family. “I’m taking over a year off now, because of my family situation, to take care of my kids,” she said.
Welcome back, Ang.
