Actress Angelina Jolie's "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil" will hit the theatres on October 18, 2019.
The announcement was made on Wednesday by Walt Disney Studios. The fantasy adventure had previously been slated to debut on May 29, 2020, reports variety.com.
The new date pits "Maleficent: 2" against an untitled film from horror-maker Blumhouse. It will also have to contend with the second weekends of "The Adams Family", the adaptation of Donna Tartt's "The Goldfinch", "Zombieland 2" and "Gemini Man", a futuristic thriller that unites Will Smith and Ang Lee.
