Maleficent In Sleeping Beauty (1959) (3/25)


Maleficent's character was created by Marc Davis who is also responsible for Cruella De Vil's and Tinker Bell's characters. Andreas Deja, a man who worked at Walt Disney for 30 years, created a blog post dedicated to Marc Davi's concept of Maleficent. According to him, the first sketches showed Maleficent wearing black and red since it had a strong meaning to Davis but the background stylist Eyving Earle was keen to use other colors so they settled for black with purple. As Andreas says, "Sometimes teamwork isn't easy."
