This week’s look at a Disney villain shines a spotlight on Maleficent from “Sleeping Beauty.”
First appearing in the 1959 film, Maleficent’s villainous deeds vary from her putting a curse on a baby Princess Aurora to tricking a 16-year-old Aurora into pricking her finger on a spinning wheel. Maleficent’s anger eventually got the best of her when she turned herself into a dragon to battle the princess’s love, Prince Phillip.
