Hi everybody, and welcome to a new NIL-Tech tutorial: "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil". Maleficent is a 2014 American dark dream motion picture directed by Robert Stromberg from a movie script by Linda Woolverton, and starring Angelina Jolie as Maleficent with Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville in supporting functions.

Here are some exciting facts about the Maleficent:

1. Maleficent's magic changes color. When she is kind, her magic is gold, and when she is evil, her magic is green.

2. Angelina Jolie based her character's speech and accent in honor of the original Sleeping Beauty's Maleficent voice actor Eleanor Audley. Her laughter in the motion picture was likewise based on the best variation she tried in front of her children and chosen by them.

3. And unsurprisingly, her horns were based straight off the devil, "so she would frighten everybody half to death." Maleficent's prosthetics and makeup were motivated by singer Lady Gaga, especially on her "Born This Way" album cover.

4. The name "Maleficent" is a derivative of the Latin word maleficentia, which means "evil-doing".

5. Jolie's daughter Vivienne plays a young Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) in the movie because she was not scared of her mom's scary look in an outfit. And two of her other children, Pax and Zahara, have cameos in the christening scene as young royalty.
