Does ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?

Does ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?When it comes to movies that seem like solid candidates to earn sequels, “Maleficent” probably wouldn’t have made the list. It did, after all, pretty much cover exactly the same ground as the animated Disney classic “Sleeping Beauty” that it was based on, so nobody would have thought it was strange if they had just not made another one. But just as the old Sleeping Beauty folktales had more story to tell after Aurora woke up, Disney decided to continue this retelling with “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.”

Of course, “Maleficent 2” doesn’t really go to the same places those old stories did, instead taking things in a direction that could allow Disney to turn “Maleficent” into an honest-to-god franchise. And so lots of folks are going to understandably wonder if there are more “Maleficent” movies in store.

And since this is a franchise now, you’re probably wondering if this movie does the franchise thing of teasing a potential future movie with a bonus mid-credits or post-credits scene.

While I cannot tell you whether “Maleficent 3” will ever happen because I don’t know, I can tell you that *“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” does not contain any extra scenes during or after the credits*. Once the movie ends and the credits begin, there’s no other content you need to stick around for.

That said, we do always encourage all moviegoers to stick around through the credits out of appreciation for all the hard work that brought what you just experienced to life. But if you gotta go, you gotta go, and you’ll be able to head out knowing you’re not missing any extra content or whatever.

“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” brings back a chunk of the cast from the first film: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton, and Lesley Manville. It adds Harris Dickinson, replacing Brenton Thwaites as Prince Phillip, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chiwetel Ajiofor, Ed Skrein, David Gyasi and Robert Lindsay. It’s directed by Joachim Ronning.
