A nice article with Elle Fanning talking about her admiration for Angelina and some insight on how she is on set!
Elle Fanning thinks Angelina Jolie is “amazing.”
The young star who recently finished work on Maleficent 2 tells People, “I was 14 when I did the first movie, now I’m 20.”
“I wasn’t as young now so Angelina and I got to relate on a different level now that I’m older,” Fanning says while at the L’Oréal Fashion Show during Paris Fashion Week on Sunday.
Their time together on the set saw the two stars bond.
“We actually got very close on the second one. Very close. She’s amazing!” the 20-year-old actress says. “She does a lot and is very inspiring to work with. To see how she handles the business and also she’s the producer so to see that side of things, to see her with her producer hat on, I learned a lot.”
When asked if the producer hat fit over Jolie’s iconic horns Fanning laughed.
“Oh yeah,” she says. “Definitely.”
So it’s a wrap for Maleficent 2! Exciting news and there hasn’t been any on set photos with Angelina which is a bit sad for us fans but probably nice for Angelina to not been photographed non stop 😉
Maleficent II has officially wrapped up production! Director Joachim Rønning and actress Elle Fanning took to their respective social media accounts to announce the end of filming on the sequel.
Oscar and three-time Golden Globe winner Angelina Jolie (Girl, Interrupted, Wanted) and Elle Fanning (The Beguiled, Super 8) reprise their roles as the dark fairy Maleficent and Princess Aurora, respectively, two characters from the studio’s animated classic Sleeping Beauty, whose untold story was brought to life on screen in Maleficent.
Michelle Pfeiffer (Murder on the Orient Express, Ant-Man and The Wasp), the Golden Globe Award-winning, Emmy nominated and three-time Academy Award-nominated actress, joins the cast as Queen Ingrith. Also joining the production are Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (Doctor Strange, 12 Years a Slave), Ed Skrein (Deadpool, Game of Thrones) and Robert Lindsay (My Family, Wimbledon). Harris Dickinson (The Darkest Minds, Trust) joins Maleficent II as Prince Phillip.
A date is set for Maleficent 2 and it will be May 20, 2020 according to Deadline
Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt’s Jungle Cruise now will set sail on a week later on October 11, 2019, and Disney had an unspecified live-action title scheduled for May 29, 2020, that has been designated to Maleficent 2.
This Tuesday, May 29, 2018, actress Elle Fanning released the first photo of Angelina Jolie on the film sets of Maleficent 2 on her official Instagram.
The recordings of the film began last week and are being held at Pinewood Studios in the UK.
In addition, the official Disney Instagram also posted a photo officially confirming that the feature is already in production.
Angelina Jolie will return to the lead role playing Malificent herself and Elle Fanning will return playing the role of Princess Aurora. According to The Collider, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville will also return to star as their first film roles.

More casting news for Maleficent 2!
Harris Dickinson, who will be seen in the upcoming YA adaptation The Darkest Minds, is joining Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent sequel.
Dickinson joins fellow franchise newcomers Michelle Pfeiffer and Ed Skrein. Elle Fanning is set to return for the follow-up to the 2014 Disney hit that grossed $758 million at the global box office.
Plot details are being kept locked away in a tower, and it is currently unclear if the sequel will pick up where the original left off. Dickinson will be playing the prince in the new pic, replacing Brenton Thwaites, who played the role in the original.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales co-director Joachim Ronning will helm the feature that centers on the Sleeping Beauty antagonist. Joe Roth will produce the film, with Jez Butterworth and Linda Woolverton working on the screenplay.
Dickinson, who currently stars on FX’s John Paul Getty series Trust, is repped by Gersh, Luber Roklin and Bloom Hergott.
