Poll: Who Is the Most Evil Disney Villain?

Written by

Disney Villains each have their own special brand of wickedness that they’ve honed throughout their lives. But which of them is the most evil? And which of them takes the (poison apple) cake when it comes to pure villainy? It’s time to vote:

Did you vote “other”? Let us know who you picked and why you think they are the most evil Disney Villain in the comments!

When the news broke that figure skaters are now allowed to use lyrical music in their competitive routines, we immediately began to imagine all of the amazing Disney songs they could use. Not that we already had full programs planned out and choreographed in our minds, but needless to say we were ready to head to the nearest ice rink and ask if anyone wanted help putting together a solid, memorable routine. So as we did with gymnastics floor routines, here are 10 Disney songs figure skaters should use for their routines:

  1. “Circle of Life” – The Lion King
    Rafiki lifting Simba in The Lion King.Let’s start with a bang, and by “bang” we mean the iconic song from the opening scene of The Lion King. Besides the obvious nostalgia factor to get the crowd going, we love the pace changes throughout, which include a strong start, softer instrumental, and then an explosive finale. It’s the perfect choice for someone who wants their free skate to convey emotion and grandeur.
  2. “Reflection” – Mulan
    Mulan singing Passionate, heartfelt, and simply gorgeous, “Reflection” is poetic, and thus probably best used in a free skate, which is the longer of the two skating routines in most figure skating competitions. We think this song would work really well with a heavily artistic routine because of the slower tempo and emotional context.
  3. “Zero to Hero” – Hercules
    The Muses singing If you want to leave an impression on the judges, look no further than this fun, upbeat number from one of our favorite ‘90s Disney films, Hercules. With its fast tempo, amusing lyrics, and perfect length, “Zero to Hero” has “short program” written all over it. Excuse us while we daydream of Adam Rippon executing the heck out of a series of technical jumps to this song.
  4. “Let It Go” – Frozen
    Elsa singing Were you afraid we were going leave out the most fitting Disney song to perform a figure skating routine to? Besides the obvious ice and winter connection, “Let It Go” is just a really great ballad that is sure to capture the attention of audience members and judges alike. Who wouldn’t be moved by a song that exhibits a wide range of emotions, such as poignant solitude, sassiness, and powerful confidence?
  5. “Just Around the Riverbend” – Pocahontas
    Pocahontas paddling a canoe while singing The obvious choice might be “Colors of the Wind,” but there’s something about “Just Around the Riverbend” that fits better, namely the tempo (you need something exciting to emphasize those incredible jumps) and the inspirational message. We can totally see Mirai Nagasu execute a triple axel right when Pocahontas sings, “I look once more just around the riverbend!”
  6. “Out There” – The Hunchback of Notre Dame
    Quasimodo hugging Hugo and Laverne while singing “Out There” is a special kind of song because it consists of two songs, “Stay In Here,” sung by Claude Frollo and Quasimodo, and “Out There,” sung solely by Quasimodo. We think a short program would do best by starting when Quasimodo sings “Safe behind these windows and these parapets of stone” because that’s when the music really starts to build. For the longer free skate, we would leave in the “Stay In Here” section for a well-rounded routine with contrast and moving instrumental transitions. Phew, that was a lot, but as you can probably tell, figure skating is very important to us.
  7. “A Whole New World” – Aladdin
    Jasmine and Aladdin flying on Magic Carpet while singing Do we really need to explain why this is the PERFECT pairs/ice dancing song to perform a routine to? It’s a duet, which plays into the whole pairs thing, and it’s sentimental while not being overly sappy.
  8. “I 2 I” – A Goofy Movie
    Powerline singing Now this is the kind of song that has the potential to really get the crowd excited. We imagine a routine with fun hand gestures at the beginning (gotta get those artistic points), and then maybe a triple loop-triple lutz combination at the chorus, followed by some really fast spins.
  9. “Be Our Guest” and “Beauty and the Beast” – Beauty and the Beast
    Belle and Beast dancing.“Be Our Guest” and “Beauty and the Beast” are very different songs, but through the magic of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, they ultimately work well together. The more lively of the two, “Be Our Guest,” is the perfect Disney song to start off a figure skating routine. It’ll get the crowd up on their feet and clapping along to the bouncy beat. We’d then suggest transitioning to “Beauty and the Beast,” as this song will bring the emotion needed to win the judges over. Also, it’s a great musical choice to accompany an arabesque spiral, which is when the figure skater glides on one leg while lifting the other leg high in the air. Again, we are obsessed with figure skating.
  10. A Newsies Medley
    Newsies-Santa-FeOkay, we’ve thought a lot about this and here is how we’d put it together:
    Obviously, you’ve gotta start with the opening of “Seize the Day.” The performance would be subtle at first, but once the tempo starts to pick up, that’s when we’d throw in a fun step sequence involving the toe pick, which would resemble the newsboys when they perform their jig. From there, “King of New York” would be another upbeat song to use for some spirals and jumps, before concluding with “Santa Fe,” of course.

Which Disney songs would you choose to skate to? Let us know in the comments.

We are very intrigued. It sounds like a new villain character is going to join the VKs, and that it’s Mal’s dad! We have not been this excited since we heard about Harry Hook.

Descendants 3 will begin production in Vancouver, Canada this summer for next year’s debut. Reprising their roles are: Dove Cameron as Mal, Cameron Boyce as Carlos, Sofia Carson as Evie, Booboo Stewart as Jay, Mitchell Hope as King Ben and China Anne McClain as Uma. Also known as our fave VKs. Additional casting for Descendants 3 will be announced at a later date, and we can’t wait to find out more!

Until then, we’ll be chillin’ like a villain. And counting the days until Descendants 3.

All it takes to win our hearts are three words: Rose. Gold. Churros.

Strawberry rose gold churros have made their debut at Disneyland, and we’re head over heels for them! Just in time for Valentine’s week, these strawberry treats can now be found at the churro cart in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. We might have to make a trip to Disneyland today, solely for a rose gold churro. These pretty desserts are not only delicious, but also selfie ready, sparkly sprinkles and all.

imageWe’ve been rocking our rose gold spirit jerseys and rose gold Minnie ears, but our lives are now truly complete with a gorgeous rose old churro in hand.

If you still have more churro cravings, the churro carts throughout Disneyland and Disney California Adventure have you covered. Of course, we’ll always be loyal to the classic Disneyland churro, but we’re pretty excited about these s’mores churros:imageOffered at the churro cart in New Orleans Square, these tasty treats are coated in graham cracker dust and served with marshmallow-chocolate dipping sauce. Mmmm.

We need a churro fix, ASAP. Make sure to snap a cute pic posing with your rose gold churro at the Park before scarfing it down. And don’t forget to hashtag #DisneyChurro to share your sweet selfie!

Disney•Pixar characters are incredibly relatable. We often find ourselves laughing until our stomachs hurt or reaching for the tissue box in response to what they say—even characters that only get a few minutes of screen time. You know their words, but can you put a face to the phrase? Let’s see if you can match the quote to the obscure Disney•Pixar character:

Though we don’t recall them sharing any scenes together in the movie (Why would the Queen of Genovia bother with Lana, anyway?), it appears that Mandy Moore and Julie Andrews were able to spend some time together on the set of The Princess Diaries. Check out this adorable throwback photo Mandy posted on Instagram of herself, Julie Andrews, and co-star Heather Matarazzo:

16 year old me with the inimitable @julieandrews and @heathermatarazzo on the set of #theprincessdiaries. #tbt #thosecurlstho

A post shared by Mandy Moore (@mandymooremm) on Feb 15, 2018 at 12:52pm PST

Mandy’s caption reads:

“16 year old me with the inimitable @julieandrews and @heathermatarazzo on the set of #theprincessdiaries. #tbt #thosecurlstho”

Mandy, who also voices Rapunzel in Tangled and Tangled: The Series, made her live-action film debut in The Princess Diaries, and you can tell just based on that big smile that this must have been a big moment for her. It would have been for us!

PS: We think your curls look great, Mandy! Experience the joy of The Princess Diaries again by owning it for yourself!

If you’re going to slide headfirst down a frozen track at speeds hovering around 80mph, you might as well look cool and channel Iron Man while doing so. Well, at least that’s what we first assumed when we saw South Korean skeleton racer Yun Sung-bin. However, not only does Yun willingly compete in skeleton, he’s also one of the best in the sport, which he recently compared to Marvel’s iconic superhero. “The way people ride skeleton is similar to the way Iron Man flies,” Yun told Reuters.

In addition to the similarity, Yun is also a huge fan of Iron Man, which is the real reason why he wears him on his helmet. In the same Reuters article, Yun’s childhood friend Kim Joon-ho, said that Yun “has loved Ironman since he was young, he’s his role model.”

South Korean skeleton racer Yun Sung-Bin races down the track in an Iron Man helmet.

Yun isn’t the only racer who’s added a personal touch to his helmet, with other riders opting for animals and artistic graphics. Of course, this got us thinking about all the cool Disney-inspired designs one might put on a helmet. Skeleton racers, take note of the following ideas:

Hades
Hades holding two thumbs up in Hercules.Flames. We think you could do a lot in terms of design with the blue flames Hades sports.

The Woodland Animals from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Snow White singing to her woodland animal friends in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.Psych out the competition by wearing a helmet covered with the adorable woodland animals from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Fellow racers will think you’re just there to show off your cute helmet design, but you’ll totally show them you mean business once you’re out on the track.

Scar and Simba fighting
Simba and Scar fighting near a fire at the end of The Lion King.Fearsome animals seem to be a popular helmet trend, and we’re hopping on the bandwagon! But seriously, think about how cool it would be to walk around with that intense scene on your helmet.

What Marvel or Disney-inspired helmet would you wear? Let us know in the comments.
