Disney villains. We LOVE to hate them, but admit it, a lot of our favourite films wouldn’t be the same without them…
Because we ALL love a Disney movie, we here at Toys for a Pound have decided to rank our five favourites, or least favourite, Disney villains!
Prepare for your blood to boil and let us know if we’ve missed anyone!
5. Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty)
We kick things off with Maleficent, the evil fairy from Sleeping Beauty. Ruthless, dark and deviant, Maleficent’s evil powers seem to know no bounds. However, most of her curses end up on Aurora’s doorstep, simply after not being invited to a christening, weird, right? Also, Maleficent's pet raven Diablo looked as sinister as her.
4. Ursula (The Little Mermaid)
We couldn’t make this list without including the sea witch Ursula from The Little Mermaid, could we? Her appearance, evil laugh and two eel sidekicks just make for a character we loved to hate. She hypnotised Eric into falling in love with her, instead of Ariel whom he should have fallen for, and we HATE anyone who stands in the way of love!!!
3. Jafar (Aladdin)
We all HATED Jafar didn’t we?! He was the main antagonist in Aladdin and what didn’t this guy do! He tried to force Princess Jasmine to marry him just to kill her and take the throne, betrayed his friend the Sultan by turning him into a puppet, and even pretended to Jasmine that Aladdin had been executed. This dude just looked slimy, didn’t he?!
2. Cruella De Vil (101 Dalmatians)
We were never going to leave Cruella De Vil out of this list, obviously. Anyone who has a song about how evil she is deserves a place on this list for that alone! (We’ve got it stuck in our heads too)! She also doesn’t mind skinning puppies in the name of fashion…
1. Scar (The Lion King)
It was a toss-up between first and second, but Scar’s place at the top of the list can’t really be argued. The jealous younger brother of Mufasa, he was in line for the throne before Simba was born, and boy was he angry. He plans to kill both Mufasa and Simba, and eventually throws Mufasa to his death below. Scar then lied to Simba saying he was to blame for his father’s death before telling Simba to run away so Scar could rule Pride Rock, he SUUUUUUUUCKED.
