Disney calls Maleficent an 'enchantress'

June 11, 2011

So it's kind of official. Maleficent is no witch, sorceress, demon, or fairy. She's an enchantress.

On Disney's official Twitter account, this was posted:

Merriam-Webster defines it as follows:
en·chant·ress noun \in-ˈchan-trəs, en-\
1: a woman who practices magic : sorceress
2: a fascinating or beautiful woman
Enchantress, sorceress, witch...they're all the same. Whatever she may be, Maleficent practiced great magic and was not someone to be crossed with, as some royals with party invites realized too late.

If anything, Mr. Webster is spot-on about "a fascinating or beautiful woman."
