Maleficent 3 Release Date
Although the makers of Maleficent have yet not confirmed a third installment of the movie, the chances of Maleficent 3 are high; after all, both the movies were huge hits.

Maleficent 1 was directed by Robert Stromberg and Maleficent: The Evil Mistress was directed by Joachim Ronning. So, the chances that a new third director will Direct Maleficent 3 are high.
“I love this universe. I love this kind of movie. So we’ll just have to wait and see. It all depends on how this goes,” said Ronning when asked about his direction plans for part 3.
