Brenton Thwaites Not Returning for ‘Maleficent 2’

written by Jasper III.V

Brenton portrayed the role of Prince Phillip in the 2014 film, Maleficent. Production on the sequel is set to start this year as more cast additions get announced. Unfortunately, Brenton won’t be able to reprise his role due to scheduling conflicts with the series, Titans. Harris Dickinson has been cast to replace Brenton for the role.

VARIETY – Harris Dickinson, who portrays J. Paul Getty III in FX’s limited series “Trust,” is set to play the prince and love interest of Elle Fanning in Disney’s “Maleficent 2.”

Angelina Jolie will return to star as the title character with Michelle Pfeiffer in negotiations to play Dickinson’s mother, and Ed Skrein on board to play one of the the villains. Dickinson’s role was played by Brenton Thwaites in the first pic, but due to schedule conflicts with his TV show “Titans,” where he plays Dick Grayson/Robin, he was unable to return for the role.

“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” helmer Joachim Ronning is set to direct.
