On June 15, 2015, Walt Disney Pictures announced the sequel of 2014 film Maleficent, setting Linda Woolverton to write the screenplay of the film. Angelina Jolie's returning was not confirmed but the script was intended to be written for her role. Joe Roth would be back also to produce the film. On April 25, 2016, Disney officially confirmed the sequel and the return of Jolie and screenwriter Woolverton. On August 29, 2017, Disney hired Jez Butterworth to rewrite the script by Woolverton and Joe Roth was added as producer. In September 2017, Jolie stated that they "have been working on the script and this is going to be a really strong sequel." On October 3, 2017, Deadline reported that the film would be directed by Joachim Rønning and it would start filming in the first quarter of 2018.

In April 2018, Ed Skrein was cast in the film to play the main villain role, while Elle Fanning was returning to play her role from the previous film. Michelle Pfeiffer was also added to play the queen in the film. In May 2018, it was announced that Harris Dickinson would replace Brenton Thwaites in the role of Prince Phillip, due to scheduling conflicts with the latter actor. Later it was also confirmed that Ian McKellen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jenn Murray, David Gyasi, and Robert Lindsay had also joined the cast. Sam Riley, Josh Gad, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville were also confirmed to reprise their roles from the prior film.
