Maleficent is a classic villain. She may be one of Disney’s most famous villains, but she is not the most evil. She may not have inflicted a lot of pain on her victims, but she was definitely menacing. She had an air of mystery and magic that made her a popular character with kids and adults alike.
Maleficent was first introduced in Sleeping Beauty in 1959. She was the main antagonist, bent on revenge against King Stefan after he cut off her wings. It was a tragic story, but one that Disney was able to make into a beloved film for children and families everywhere.
Maleficent Costume Guide: How to Dress Like the Villainess from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty
Maleficent is the evil fairy in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. She is a wicked sorceress and the self-proclaimed mistress of all evil. She cursed Princess Aurora to die on her 16th birthday, but the curse was changed to a sleep-inducing spell by the good fairies Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather. Maleficent appeared in the movie in 1959 as a scary woman with long horns, devilish green skin, big black eyes, and a high voice. In 2014 she will take on the role of Angelina Jolie in Disney’s remake.
