Busy bee MIYAVI has been very subtly hinting that he will be starring in the next Maleficent 2 alongside Michelle Pfeiffer, Angelina Jolie, and Juno Temple on his Instagram. According to IMDb, he will be playing a character named Udo, but as to what this character contributes to in the second wicked witch film is shrouded in mystery as the film is not out until 2020.
This wouldn’t be the first time MIYAVI has worked together with Jolie as she cast him in Unbroken as a sadistic Japanese prison guard back in 2014. It seems he’s taking a stroll down the path of an actor in recent years in Japanese cinema too, starring as Byakuya Kuchiki in Bleach and playing a role in Gangoose that is coming out in Japan this Autumn. Expect official announcements later next year for Maleficent 2.
