    It looks like Disney fans have another sequel to look forward now that news of the studio working toward making another "Maleficent" movie has hit the Internet. According to the Deadline, Disney has already started making moves to bring part two of the 2014 box office hit to the big screen by bringing on Linda Woolverton to write the sequel.

    But what about Angelina Jolie? It seems obvious that another film wouldn't be possible without the A-lister, who starred in the flick. However it doesn't look like Disney has secured a contract with Jolie.

    The studio is keeping Jolie in the loop, acording to the article, and the sequel will be written for her to reprise. However, nothing has been set in stone (and remember, Jolie opted out of sequels for both "Salt" and "Wanted").

    But, there's still hope, because the actress did rave about her role last year.

    "I loved being Maleficent. I was quite sad to put my staff down and put my horns away because somehow, she just lives in a different world," the 40-year-old actress said at the time.

    "But I did have to take my staff home to practice walking with it in my cloak, and then I would go outside and scream at the bushes to expand my voice and play with my voice. So, mom was a bit nutso for a period."

    Three of her children made cameos in the movie, too—Pax Jolie-Pitt, Zahara Jolie-Pitt and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt (who played a young Princess Aurora, while her siblings were given lesser roles).

    "The idea of that day was the prince and princesses from around the world show up for the christening, so there will people of all races, all creeds. It was Pax and his teacher, who is Vietnamese, playing the Vietnamese Queen and Prince and then Zahara and her teacher playing the African or Nubian queen and princess. I love that christening scene so much and of course we've watched it at home [in the animated film] as a family. I had to walk by them being very mean. Of course, I wanted to stop and wink at them."
