Maleficent (La Belle Au Bois Dormant)

Evil Fairy

The figure is very well done and particularly faithful to the character. She wears a long black dress with wide sleeves as if torn and lined with purple. As in the cartoon her face is green but more turquoise and therefore less evil. The details of the shape of her eyebrows and her purple makeup are finely represented. As in the movie, she wears this strange headdress in the shape of horns to recall her evil side. We never know if she really has horns or if it is just a headdress. This element as well as the unnatural color of the skin make us think that she is another species, a kind of evil fairy and not a witch. Finally she carries the golden cane topped by a luminous ball which gives her some of her powers.


The Disney version of the Carabosse

Evil Fairy is one of the main characters of the Walt Disney cartoon Sleeping Beauty”. The cartoon is inspired by the Grimm fairy tale (itself a revision of Charles Perrault’s tale) but the character of Maleficent was invented by the Disney studios since she replaces the fairy Carabosse. At the christening of Princess Aurora, the entire kingdom is invited except for the evil fairy/witch Maleficent. To get revenge, she invites herself to the christening and gives Aurora the gift of beauty but promises that she will die before she turns 16. One of the good fairies softens the fate by predicting that she will not die but will fall asleep for 100 years. She then takes Aurora to live with her and her two sisters in the forest to escape the curse. But Maleficent will do anything to find her and make sure that the prophecy is fulfilled. Maleficent is a dark character with strong powers who lives in a mysterious lair surrounded by strange, demonic, but stupid creatures. She can take on many different forms including that of a dragon and is always accompanied by a raven named Diablo.
