The gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam.

Sweet princess, if through this wicked witch’s trick, a spindle should your finger prick… a ray of hope there still may be in this, the gift I give to thee. Not in death, but just in sleep, the fateful prophecy you’ll keep. And from this slumber you shall wake, when true love’s kiss, the spell shall break. - Sleeping Beauty (1959)

I set my trap for a peasant and lo! I catch a prince!


Disney Villains Week - Favorite Outfit

The design for Maleficent's clothes occurred to Davis when he was looking through a book on Medieval art; one of the manuscript images featured a religious figure with long robes, the ends of which resembled flames. Davis incorporated this into Maleficent's final design. [xEarly designs feature Maleficent's signature dress in red instead of purple.

But don’t you remember? We’ve met before.

"But I wanted it blue!" "Now, dear, we decided pink was her color" "YOU decided!"

"…they say if you dream a thing more than once, it’s sure to come true, and I’ve seen him so many times."
