Disney has released a full trailer for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, sequel to 2014's Maleficent. While fans debate over whether live action remakes and sequels of Disney animated classics are necessary, Maleficent was well-received by audiences and critics. Will this sequel carry on the original's legacy of subverting tropes and giving power to women's love and relationships? Only time will tell. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil will be released in theaters October 18.
