I wonder if Marina Sirtis would make a good Maleficent?

@Finister2 I have thought she would make a good grown up Snow White.

Eleanor is the original Maleficent. As for the other two ladies, Lois captures the fierce spirit of Eleanor's performance, whilst Susanne's performance is evil-ish yet charming.

It's difficult not to vote for Eleanor Audley because, in all fairness, Maleficent was actually modeled off of her, in voice, style, and presence. So far, all the voice acting I've heard from Kingdom Hearts has been spot on, and Susanne is undoubtedly no exception.

1) Eleanor Audley
2) Susanne Blakeslee
3) Lois Nettleson

 4 Shout Outs! [?]
Eleanor Audley is the best, no debate about it. But Susanne Blakeslee is a superb impersonation and worthy successor. Lois did a good imitation too, but the voice was a bit too deep and her delivery was really forced.

@Galactic_Cyrus Agreed

@Aussieroth Listening to the clips more, I actually think Lois' voice sounds closer to Eleanor than Susanne's. The problem is the delivery and acting - it goes back and fourth between being evil and being inappropriately sexual and flirtatious. I get that it was because it was a romance spoof between her and Hades, but it's seriously forced and distracting.

Eleanor was the original which makes her brilliant though i'm going 4 Susanne as I really enjoy playing KH.

Lois was ok though not as great as the other 2.

Susanne Blakeslee really gets into the role of Maleficent. She's the best one so far.

I give credit to all three for being the very wicked Maleficent. But the regining champion is Eleanor Audley now and forever her voice is so creepy and so natural in my opinion. In this comparison it seems that Eleanor's is more evil thant the other 2. The House of Mouse sounds seductive. And the Kingdom Hearts a bit full of it. But their all great.

Eleanor did a great job - she defined the role for Maleficent as a very evil, daunting character who was one to be feared. I do wish to go with Suzanne Blakeslee on this one, however because she took the role so much further. As I played through Kingdom Hearts, I really heard the emotion and power in her voice and she captured Maleficent even better.

Eleanor Audley will always be the best! But I would give second to Susan Blakeslee as I think she does an awesome job in the Kingdom Hearts series.

Eleanor audley is definitely the best, but between Nettleton and Blakeslee i'm gonna have to go with Blakeslee. True Nettleton did a better impression of Audley, but Blakeslee did a better job of bringing out Maleficent's character and personality! :)

Eleanor Audley FTW. She put the right amount of wickedness and power into her voice. Her acting was spot on as well.

Lois Nettleton was a great imitation of Audley, however her performance was too flat overall.

Susanne Blakeslee sounded too sweet to be Maleficent.
