The wicked witch was aptly named “Maleficent” (an adjective which means “doing evil or harm”. It also has the appearance of being a portmanteau of malevolent and magnificent. In determining Maleficent’s design, standard depictions of witches and hags were dismissed as Mattinson’s opted for an elegant, sinister, green-skinned beauty centered around the appearance of flames, ultimately crowning the villain with a black two pointed headdress, often called an atora. According to Mattinson, Maleficent “was designed like a giant vampire bat to create a feeling of menace.” In the end the individual character of the three good fairies and the elegant villain proved to be among the film’s strongest points.
