Angelina Jolie will return as a magical fairy in “Maleficent 2,” Disney announced.

“Maleficent 2” is the sequel to 2014 fantasy film Maleficent, which grossed $758 million at the box office worldwide.

Screenwriter Linda Woolverton, who wrote the script for the first “Maleficent,” will be back for the sequel.

Meanwhile, Jolie’s frail body and weight loss have fueled rumors she’s suffering from the eating disorder anorexia, Examiner reported.

Sources claim the 5-foot-7 Angie weighs a sickly 79 pounds and refuses to eat. Jolie’s dad, actor Jon Voight, is terrified because she has ignored his frantic phone calls.

Angelina’s husband, Brad Pitt, is reportedly so worried he threatened to divorce her, hoping that will scare her straight.

Jolie’s skinny body has long fueled speculation she’s suffering from the eating disorder anorexia. In 2014, Jolie’s former babysitter said Angelina was hospitalized for anorexia as a teen, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.

Cis Rundle, a friend of Jolie’s late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, claimed she once carried a frail Angelina into a hospital after she collapsed from malnutrition.

Angie has never addressed the anorexia reports, but admitted she lost weight shortly after her mom died in 2007 due to stress and depression. Jolie has insisted she tries to be healthy for the sake of her six children.

Angelina Jolie married Brad Pitt in August 2014 in a fairytale wedding ceremony at Chateau Miraval, their sprawling wine estate in the South of France.

The gorgeous couple met on the set of their 2004 blockbuster, Mr. and Mrs. Smith and co-starred again in the 2015 film By the Sea.

Angelina said she wants to be an even better wife to Brad by learning how to cook for him. “We have more moments where I say, ‘I’m going to be a better wife,’” said Jolie. “‘I’m going to learn to cook.’

“And [Brad] says, ‘Oh, honey, know what you’re good at.’ But I do like, ‘No, no, no, I’m going to get this wife thing down.’ He knows my limitations and where I’m a good wife and a good mom.”

Angelina, who has been a United Nations goodwill ambassador since 2001, discussed how her charity work has made her a happier, better person in her diary, Notes from My Travels.
