Official Trailer: Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil - In Theaters October 18!.
In the five years since King Stefan's death, Aurora (Elle Fanning) has reigned as Queen of the Moors, with Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) as its guardian and protector. Despite her service, the neighboring kingdom of Ulstead, home to Prince Phillip (Harris Dickinson), deems Maleficent a villain, and while Phillip's father King John (Robert Lindsay) wishes for peace, his mother Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer) has been secretly preparing for war; in the hidden areas of the castle, workers make weapons and ammunition out of iron, deadly to all fairies. Diaval (Sam Riley), Maleficent's raven and confidante, overhears Phillip proposing to Aurora, and tells Maleficent. While she advises against the union, Aurora vows to prove her wrong.
Phillip's parents host an intimate dinner, having invited Aurora, Maleficent, and Diaval. Maleficent maintains her composure as Ingrith taunts her throughout the evening by repeating the inaccurate story that has made the humans believe her to be evil: the story of Maleficent's sleeping curse on Aurora is only half the truth, because no one has ever been told the whole truth about her loving Aurora and sacrificing herself to lift the curse. Ingrith alludes to Stefan's death as murder, and openly claims Maleficent killed two human fairy poachers last seen near the Moors. Maleficent responds with equal iciness that humans have been kidnapping fairies, and hints that she believes the order to do it comes from the King or Queen.
When Ingrith dismisses Maleficent's maternal bond with Aurora and claims that the marriage will make Ingrith her real mother, Maleficent reacts by angrily unleashing a burst of magical energy. John suddenly faints, and Ingrith accuses Maleficent of cursing him, which Maleficent denies to a disbelieving Aurora. Phillip urges his mother to try and awaken John with a kiss. Ingrith demurs, and her weak attempt fails because she does not love her husband - especially for their differing views on peace and war.
