The Oscar winner turns 44 on Tuesday in the midst of her highly-anticipated return to the big screen. Jolie, who has spent the last few years honing her skills as a director, executive producer and continuing her advocacy work, is set to appear in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil on Oct. 18.
The sequel to the smash hit 2014 Disney movie teams Jolie up with Elle Fanning again, and the two are joined by screen legend Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith.
“I love my horns,” Jolie told PEOPLE earlier this year. “It is such a pleasure to play her and I hope the audience enjoy her as much as I do. It was wonderful to work again with Elle and to have a chance to work with Michelle.”
Jolie is also set to make her first superhero appearance in Marvel’s upcoming The Eternals alongside Game of Thrones and Bodyguard‘s Richard Madden. The Eternals follows the story of a group of near-immortal superheroes known as Eternals who lived on Earth and shaped its history and civilizations.
