Maleficent: Most of them do.

Maleficent: I did, but they were stolen from me. That's all I wish to say about it.
  • "Maleficent" could be a combination of the words "Malevolent" and "Magnificent".
  • By coincidence, Maleficent (2014) was released on May 30, 2014; precisely the same year as the 55th anniversary of Walt Disney's classic Sleeping Beauty (1959).
  • Maleficent's crow companion is named Diaval (pronounced similarly to 'devil') and in the Disney cartoon version Maleficent's crow companion is named Diablo (a word meaning 'devil'). In Irish lore crows are associated with the winged battle goddesses the Morrigan (they sound similar, as well, to Maleficent). In most all other lore crows are associated with death, the dead, and trickery. Thus, they can be "devilish" birds.
  • This is the major movie comeback for Angelina Jolie after taking a four year break with The Tourist (2010) as her last film.
  • Riley's make-up (in human form) consisted of "crow's feet" on his face and body; to foreshadow his true, avian nature.
