The new trailer features footage of Pfeiffer’s character, Queen Ingrith, who tries to claim Aurora as her own child.

“Maleficent is a threat to everyone. We will do our best to protect you,” Ingrith tells Aurora.

The synopsis of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil says the story is “a fantasy adventure that picks up several years after Maleficent, in which audiences learned of the events that hardened the heart of Disney’s most notorious villain and drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora. The film continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon-to-be queen as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.”
