Maleficent, who is often viewed as the most powerful and sinister of the Disney Villains, frequently acting as their leader in many crossovers, and her scenes in the climax of the film are among the darkest and most intense produced by Disney, has been awarded a star on the Disney's Walk of Fame during Halloween Time.
The Sunday ceremony was held on the sidewalk in Universal CityWalk in Disney Universal Studios. Maleficent is the main antagonist in Walt Disney's 1959 adaptation of Sleeping Beauty. She is the self-proclaimed "Mistress of All Evil" who, after not being invited to the baby's christening, curses the infant Princess Aurora to "prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die" before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday.
In Ultimate Disney's top 30 Disney Villains countdown, Maleficent ranked #1, with some of the reviewers describing her as "Disney's reigning villainess" or "a true Disney villain".
