    Sleeping Beauty Maleficent Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1959). "You poor, simple fools; thinking that you could defeat me! ME; the Mistress of All Evil!" Maleficent is the evil fairy in Walt Disney's 1959 classic film, Sleeping Beauty. Maleficent, the self-proclaimed "mistress of all evil", appears at Princess Aurora's christening where the three good fairies Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather bless her with the gift of beauty and song. But before the last good fairy can offer her blessing Maleficent, claiming to be upset at not being invited, curses Aurora to die when she pricks her finger on a spinning wheel's spindle before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday. In this lot is a superb production cel of Maleficent and her pet raven Diablo. This is one of the best images of Maleficent that we have seen to date! The hand-painted image measures 6" tall on 12 field acetate. The cel is in a frame of 16" x 14.25" under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 8.5" x 6.75". Frame sold as-is. There are small hairline cracks and minor paint separation on Maleficent's mouth, hands and Diablo's beak. Condition is Very Good.
