MaleficentDisney hopes that one fairy tale sequel will come true.

Deadline reports that things are moving ahead for a follow-up to 2014's blockbuster "Maleficent," which starred Angelina Jolie as the titular enchantress. Disney has hired Linda Woolverton to write the script, and is "keeping Jolie in the loop and that the sequel will be written for her to reprise."

"Maleficent" was a massive success, raking in over $758 million at the box office, and it set off a flurry of live-action reboots of Disney's animated classics. "Cinderella" was a hit this spring, and the studio is working on "Beauty and the Beast" starring Emma Watson.

The biggest question mark, of course, is whether Jolie would reprise her role. As Deadline notes, Jolie isn't high on making sequels; she turned down follow-ups to "Salt" and "Wanted." And as she USA Today of making a possible sequel, "I just feel like we did this one thoroughly and I don't think there'd be another."
