Happy Halloween! (well, almost).
It’s that time of year where everyone is getting dressed up to go trick or treating or to parties – or this year maybe just dressing up for yourself in the house….No judgement here! One fail safe outfit idea is to dress as a classic Disney villain.
Everyone’s always talking about their favourite Disney princesses -well, maybe not everyone – but what about the bad guys?
Here are my top 6 Disney villains! (I couldn’t cut one out to make 5, so sorry for the random number).
Maleficent – Sleeping Beauty
I really love Maleficent, and after watching the films depicting her own story, I see her in a completely different light. However, the original character in the Sleeping Beauty cartoon has always been a favourite of mine. She just takes no nonsense and is definitely a fighter right up until the end. And some of her skills are amazing, like turning into a dragon!
Hades – Hercules
This guy is so full of sass! He was the originator of “what are those?” (if you know, you know)! Overall a really funny villain who never actually does much of the dirty work for himself. He does turn semi-good in the end when he gives Hercules back his powers, so I wouldn’t call him an evil villain overall.
Prince John – Robin hood
Let’s face it – he’s a bit of a wimp really. He’s quite a humorous character in his own way, and his biggest crime is taxing the poor so no real physical threat. He’s easily defeated but overall, one of my favourite villains.
Mad Madame Mim – Sword in the stone
To be honest, this woman always creeps me out. She’s quite freaky, and when she turns herself into a croc and various things I get the heebies. She is quite funny and reminds me more of a spoilt child than an actual villain.
Gaston – Beauty and the Beast
Toxic masculinity at its finest, am I right? His only villainous trait is jealousy and not realising no means no. He is quite amusing at times and he is one of my favourite villains because of this.
Scar – The Lion King
Scar definitely wins the award for most brutal villain, and he fights to get what he wants in despicable ways. He’s one of my top villains because he’s the only one who I think stays completely evil for barely any reason. A lot of the Disney villains have some underlying story as to why they do these things, and some even turn ‘good’ in the end. But Scar just has no reason to be like this – could he have not left to start his own pride?
Who are your favourite Disney villains, if you have any? Be sure to let me know!
Until next time.
