All About (Disney) Villains, And Their Book Counterparts

The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the topic was villains, was "disney villains". So I thought, "how can I tie Disney to books?" And so here I am, comparing the villains in these books to the ones in Disney movies!

I actually do not usually read many books that have a clear cut villain in them, or it's been so long that I've forgotten about them, so this took some serious thinking on my part. But basically, each one of these books has some sort of resemblance to the villain in each book!

Mistborn --> Jafar from Aladdin

The Lord Ruler thinks he is all powerful, just like Jafar who thinks he will be invincible and ruler of Agrabah with the lamp.

Red Rising --> Shere Khan from The Jungle Book

Where the Golds expect no one to infiltrate their ranks and rise within them. Similar to them, Shere Khan wants to get rid of Mowgli because he doesn't belong. I don't remember what the name of the specific villain is in this series, but oh well!

Cinder --> Yzma from The Emperor's New Groove

It's funny to actually imagine this, but Queen Levana, just like Yzma, is searching for the true heir so they can get rid of them. And therefore take their place on the throne.

A Darker Shade of Magic --> Evil Queen from Snow White

Holland hates Kell because Kell is a better Antari. Just kidding, this wasn't very well thought out and I am too lazy to change it.

Everything, Everything --> Mother Gothel from Tangled

This one fits perfectly! In this case, Maddie is constantly stuck at home because her mom just wants to protect her and keep her "safe".

A Court of Thorns And Roses --> Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty

I know this is already based on Beauty and the Beast, but can you see the similarities between what's-her-face and her curse upon everyone? And Feyre has to go through a series of challenges, just like Prince Phillip.

Nimona --> Captain Hook from Peter Pan

Technically the protagonist is the villain, and he never really wins at much. Or is constantly beat by the good guy.

Walk On Earth A Stranger --> Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians

Where Lee's uncle just wants all of her gold, or gold seeking abilities. Basically just replace "gold" with "puppies" and you have Cruella.

The Abyss Surrounds Us --> Madame Medusa from The Rescuers

I don't know if anyone has watched The Rescuers, but Madame Medusa kidnaps a little girl (I think it was for ransom?) So in this book, Cas is kidnapped for her abilities to train a Reckoner. Unfortunately no little mice will be saving her. 

The Raven King --> Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog

When you play around with the dead or the spirits, don't expect to not face any consequences!

Hope you enjoyed me using my brain! Can you think of anymore?
