Did you miss Maleficent? If yes, consider yourself lucky because your favorite Disney villain is back—horns and wings and all—plus a new look.

That’s right. Disney just dropped a teaser trailer for the sequel of the 2014 movie. Titled Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, the upcoming film will again star Angeline Jolie as “the horned one,” along with Elle Fanning as Aurora. Joining them this time are Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Skrein and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

While the last film gave a glimpse on Maleficent’s descent from a noble fairy into a villain, the sequel directed by Joachim Rønning, chronicles how her dark side would come into full bloom, particularly focusing on her conflict with the Queen, played by Michelle Pfeiffer, as well as her complex relationship with Princess Aurora.

If you thought the 2014 film was dark, it looks like this will be a whole lot darker. As Maleficent said in the trailer, “This is no fairytale.”

The sequel is set to be released on October this year.
