Angelina Jolie & Emma Stone Confirmed as Disney Villains
Angelina Jolie and Emma Stone have signed on to bring two classic Disney villains back to the big screen. Jolie is officially returning to star as Maleficent in the sequel to the 2014 film, while Stone is set to portray 101 Dalmatians‘ Cruella de Vil in another Disney spin-off, titled Cruella.
Both A-listers have been circling the projects for months, and they were confirmed for the roles on Monday. Filming schedules and release dates have not been announced, and little is known about the two movies, although Disney bosses have confirmed Linda Woolverton, who wrote the script for Maleficent, will be back for the film’s sequel. Meanwhile, the film company’s executives have also confirmed plans for Reese Witherspoon to star in yet another spin-off – a film about Peter Pan’s fairy friend Tinker Bell.
