Character Descriptions

The dark fairy Maleficent (Angelina Jolie)protects the magical creatures of the Moors. Enigmatic and reviled, yet deliciously wicked, she has grown to love the princess she cursed to sleep forever.

The princess cursed as a child by Maleficent, Aurora (Elle Fanning), is now Queen of the Moors, a position bestowed on her by her godmother, and is set to wed Prince Phillip. Embodying goodness, kindness and compassion, Aurora’s love for her godmother is unconditional, and it is her pure heart and desire to do good which gives her the strength to face evil.

Queen of Ulstead and Aurora’s future mother-in-law, Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer)is wicked, cunning and selfish. A worthy adversary to the dark fairy Maleficent, she has an evil plan to divide humans and fairies forever.

Strong, fearless, heroic and kind, Conall (Chiwetel Ejiofor)is one of the leaders of the dark fey, a band of winged creatures exiled from the human world, who rescues and befriends Maleficent. Having observed the dark fairy for some time, he is an advocate for peace between men and fairies.

The crown prince of Ulstead, Prince Phillip (Harris Dickinson)is the son of King John and Queen Ingrith. His upcoming marriage to Aurora, while intended to unite humans and fairies, is in truth, part of an evil plan conceived by his mother to harm his betrothed. 

The raven Diaval (Sam Riley), Maleficent’s constant companion, serves as her eyes and ears in the human world. Despite frequent transformations into assorted creatures simply on whim, he is incredibly tolerant and fiercely loyal to the dark fairy.

One of the leaders of the Dark Fey, a band of winged creatures residing in a cavernous nest, Borra (Ed Skrein) seeks war with the humans and views Maleficent as key to their success.
