Who’s the Baddest of Them All? Vote for Your Favorite Disney Villain

posted on September 14th, 2010 by Heather Hust Rivera, Senior Manager, Corporate Communications, The Walt Disney Company


Jafar Maleficent Ursula
Evil Queen Captain Hook Cruella De Vil

It’s Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, and the Disney Villains are claiming this is their time to rule Disneyland park. Starting today, you can join the fun online and vote for your favorite villain on Disneyland.com.

Here are the Disney villains in the running:

Jafar – The all-powerful sorcerer from “Aladdin” is full of wicked magic tricks. His cunning plan is to betray the kindly Sultan, steal the magic lamp, wed Princess Jasmine and rule forever.

Maleficent – This self-proclaimed “Mistress of All Evil” can really hold a grudge when she’s not invited to the party. On Princess Aurora’s sixteenth birthday, she lures the innocent maiden to prick her finger on a spindle and fall into everlasting slumber. Then when Prince Phillip comes to rescue the Sleeping Beauty, she transforms into a monstrous, fire-breathing dragon! How medieval can you get?

Ursula – This dreadful sea witch will sink to any depths to carry out her evil deeds! With the help of two slithering eels, she torments undersea creatures, steals King Triton’s crown, and captures Princess Ariel’s beautiful voice. After she has the Little Mermaid clutched in her slimy tentacles, she conjures a massive sea storm and wages a vicious battle with Prince Eric. Could you “cast” your vote for someone this slippery?

Evil Queen – Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the most insanely jealous of them all? This narcissistic ruler commands a huntsman to take her stepdaughter into the forest, do away with her, and bring back her heart. When the Magic Mirror reveals that Snow White is alive and still the “fairest in the land,” the Queen transforms herself into a hag and convinces the innocent princess to take a bite of a poisoned apple. We think you’ll agree this Queen is truly “heartless.”

Captain Hook – This elegant but vengeful villain anchored his ship and crew in the waters of Never Land, only to see revenge upong Peter Pan. Hook locks up Tinker Bell, sends a ticking package to Peter Pan, kidnaps the Lost Boys and forces Wendy to walk the plank. and repeatedly attacked Peter Pan and his crew with swords and schemes to exact lasting revenge.

Cruella De Vil – This devilish lady stops at nothing when it comes to satisfying her need for greed. She thinks everyone is an imbecile and anything can be bought. She’s a crazy driver who’ll run you down with her fancy car. She plots! She steals! She dognaps 101 Dalmatian puppies just to make the perfect fur coat. The only thing perfect about Cruella De Vil is her name. Like the song says, “If she doesn’t scare you, no evil thing will.”
Vote for Your Favorite Disney Villain
These villains will be battling each other for the title of the baddest villain of them all, now through October 28. The voting starts today at disneyland.com/halloween, and be sure to follow us on Twitter for the latest updates.

I would have to Scar from Lion King! He’s rarely included in these types of things (Although for Lion King to have such a major part in World of Color is beyond awesome!) So yeah, Scar! LoL!

Alethea from CA on September 14th, 2010 at 4:38 pm

Can I do a write-in vote for Gaston? XD

3

Christine on September 14th, 2010 at 4:44 pm

…write in vote for Judge Claude Frollo from “The Hunchback of Norte Dame”. Such a mean, mean man!!! Otherwise, my vote would have to go to the Evil Queen!!! Can’t wait to vote!!!

4

Donny on September 14th, 2010 at 4:50 pm

I second the vote for Frollo. Truly the most well developed in the studios history. Scar should also have been included. I dont’ know why they put Captain Hook on this. He’s more comedic than scary. Not in the same class as the others.

5

Janine on September 14th, 2010 at 4:52 pm

Vote for mom!!!!! I remember this from last year. So kool!!!

6

ginger on September 14th, 2010 at 4:53 pm

my vote would’ve also been for scar.

7

Marcie on September 14th, 2010 at 5:06 pm

another Vote for Scar. After all he did kill his own brother. Yep he’s the baddest of them all!!!!!

8

Sally on September 14th, 2010 at 5:18 pm

No Hades?! I’m shocked :(

9

Keith on September 14th, 2010 at 5:25 pm

I really think Chernabog should be an option. After all, Walt referred to Chernabog as “the devil himself”

10

Robert on September 14th, 2010 at 6:04 pm

Agreed on Chernabog – I came here hoping to vote for him…

11

Missy on September 14th, 2010 at 6:08 pm

lol yes Hades! “Whoa! Is my hair out?”

Though I have often bugged my friend who a Cast Member for the Entertainment group — how come Maleficent is not a face character in Disneyland? I’ve been dying to meet her! >:)

12

Autumn on September 14th, 2010 at 6:12 pm

Scar should definitely be up there. Murdering your own brother? COME ON! And Frollo as well. He wanted to burn an entire underground civilization of people and take advantage of Esmerelda.

13

Luke from CA on September 14th, 2010 at 6:14 pm

I think a little representation from Pixar is in order, since their villains usually have a much better told emotional arc to the reasons behind their villainy. I think that Syndrome from The Incredibles and Lotso from Toy Story 3 are both incredible villains with great backstories that you can really relate to and see their motives why they made that choice. None of the above villains have that quality, they’re just bad for bads sake.

That being said, I’d pick Jafar.

14

Melinda on September 14th, 2010 at 6:31 pm

I agree with Scar. My daughter says Jafar, but Cruella kills puppies!!!!!

15

Rick from CA on September 14th, 2010 at 6:32 pm

WE WANT HADES!!!!! WRITE IN HADES

16

amanda on September 14th, 2010 at 6:41 pm

last year i believe in DCA they had this cool thing where you got to vote for the best villain and hates and gaston where on the list…those are my two favorite villains ever :D

17

shasta on September 14th, 2010 at 6:49 pm

My Son votes for Jafar and Captain hook.

18

Alisha from UT on September 14th, 2010 at 6:57 pm

Queen of Hearts- she cuts off heads! Another vote to include Hades, Scar and Chernabog!

19

Yvette on September 14th, 2010 at 7:13 pm

Evil Queen is my vote but I would have liked to see Lady Tremaine. She was some serious evil… no spells or magic, just pure EVIL :)

20

karen on September 14th, 2010 at 7:21 pm

What no Dr. Faciller? or Mad Mad Mad Madame Mim- she is the best, she makes rules so she can break them

21

Loretta from CA on September 14th, 2010 at 7:44 pm

I agree that Hades was pretty awful but if I have to pick from the ones provided, I would say Jafar.

22

Kara on September 14th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

Frollo hands down is the best worst villain! Such twisted logic and evil in the name of righteousness. He’s my vote!

23

Stacy on September 14th, 2010 at 8:08 pm

FROLLO is the meanest of them all…where is he? Since he’s not there it’s either between Maleficent and Ursula!

24

Shane from CA on September 14th, 2010 at 8:09 pm

Alright, 6 votes for Scar! About a thousand more and maybe we can get him added to the game! LoL!

25

marijo from AZ on September 14th, 2010 at 8:14 pm

I want to do a write in for Tinkerbell. Who cried, “Shoot the Wendybird! Shoot the Wendybird!” and confused the poor innocent Lost Boys into shooting Wendy? And would Hook have known where Peter’s hiding place was, if Tink hadn’t dipped her tiny, little feet into ink? I think not! So don’t be fooled by those big eyes, and pretty face–and the nightly lighting of the castle before the fireworks! Vote for Tinkerbell as the Best Worst DIsney Villain.

26

Stacy on September 14th, 2010 at 9:16 pm

I also have a write in…LOTTSO BEAR …he should have made the list after what he does to Woody and Company.

27

Alexander on September 14th, 2010 at 9:46 pm

Though he definitely isn’t the worse, my favorite is captain hook. I will say that chernabog should be on there though. And possibly a write in for Lotso Huggin Bear was pretty terrible as well. Probably the worse villain out of all the pixar movies.

28

Jake on September 14th, 2010 at 10:08 pm

I’m in agrrement with Keith, Robert and Alisha. CHERNABOG!!

29

Melissa on September 14th, 2010 at 11:23 pm

Evil Queen for sure. She turned on her own family!

30

Mary on September 15th, 2010 at 12:43 am

Mary from Santa Barbara, CA
Since I was a former Cast Member I don’t have a favorite Villiains since I think that Disney makes the best Villiains. The wicked Queen from Snow White, also Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. But threw all the years of movies and with the most recent movie “The Princess and The Frog” with Dr. Facilier and his Voodoo goes right along with all the other dark,scary and evil Villians. Disney Animaters Your The Best!!!

31

Jean on September 15th, 2010 at 12:46 am

Ever since I was a little girl I always thought the Evil Queen was a bad person. My vote: EVIL QUEEN!! She is a true classic…

Jean

32

SHARON from UT on September 15th, 2010 at 1:49 am

Maleficent! Jafar would be a close second, that snake he transforms into really is hideous, but Maleficent’s dragon transformation is by far the best. Disney Imagineers agree, thus the dragon in Fantasmic, which didn’t seem to work too well.

33

Lorie on September 15th, 2010 at 7:54 am

My vote has to be Capt. Hook! He’s the classic villain with evil plans. Too bad for him that good always conquers evil and Peter Pan is always able to outsmart the old cod fish.

34

Sandy from CA on September 15th, 2010 at 8:44 am

Scar? Where is Scar? Come on, how much more evil can one get then killing your own brother? That’s just plain EVIL! That part gets me every time… even at WOC, I get teary eyed.

35

Christopher from CA on September 15th, 2010 at 9:36 am

SCAR!!!!

no one deserves to be on here more than scar. he killed is own brother and attempted multiple times to kill his nephew. please put scar on the list.

36

Cori from IL on September 15th, 2010 at 10:20 am

@Missy

It is possible to meet Maleficent. You have to go to Mickey’s Not So Scary. You can also get your picture taken with any of the other villains present at the show in front of Cinderella’s Castle (forgive me, I forget what it’s called).

37

Jeff from OH on September 15th, 2010 at 10:28 am

I am going with the 1st villain from Disney – The Evil Queen from Snow White.

Happy Halloween

38

Monterey from CA on September 15th, 2010 at 1:44 pm

The Evil Queen! She’s the classic, the first and truly… if I may reveal my more wicked side, the coolest!

39

Yasmijn on September 15th, 2010 at 2:08 pm

Lotso is by far the most evil of all the Disney villians but I just don’t see a big bear who smells like strawberries ruling over the rest of the bunch so I’d have to go with the Evil Queen. She’s perfect for the job!

40

Marnie from WA on September 15th, 2010 at 2:11 pm

Cruella gets my vote – nothing more evil than skinning little puppies for a coat! Yikes! :-P

41

Harry on September 15th, 2010 at 4:09 pm

Charles Muntz gets my vote. The guy tried to gun down Russell, Dug, Kevin, and Mr. Fredrickson.

42

Melissa on September 15th, 2010 at 10:07 pm

No one has mentioned Madam Maduesa (The Rescuers)- She threw Penny in the dark hole for greed and blew up the Bayou with the aid of Brutus and Nero. She was down right scary when she slit that teddy bear open.

43

Todd on September 16th, 2010 at 3:05 pm

Scar and Hades top my evil list, Yzma comes in 3rd

44

Megan on September 18th, 2010 at 11:11 am

My Vote: Evil Queen!!!! She tryed to poison a wonderful little lady!!!!!! HOW dare her!!! grrrrr:(

45

Ashley from ON on September 18th, 2010 at 5:54 pm

I can’t lie~ Being the Kingdom Hearts fangirl that I am, I had to vote for Maleficent. :3

Although, I wish Yzma was on the list! She’s amazing!

46

Laura from FL on September 20th, 2010 at 5:29 pm

My son and I agree that Malificent is the ‘best’ villian. She puts a curse on a baby because she wasn’t invited to a party? Give me a break. Then she hangs around for 16 years to make sure that the curse gets completed and when that doesn’t work the way she wants she turns into that great dragon. Great classic evil. Talk about a major tantrum!
