Robin Hood

Robin Hood

It’s 1970, and Walt Disney Animation Studios is not sure where to go with their films. Walt Disney himself had died four years earlier. The Aristocats, the last film Walt personally greenlit, was already in production and set for a December release. The studio was faced with the task of creating their first film without any involvement from their namesake, founder, and primary visionary.

Eventually, they decided to create their own version of one of the oldest characters in the English literary tradition. In 1973, they reintroduced a new generation to the hero who steals from the rich and gives to the poor. Even now, Disney’s Robin Hood remains one of the world’s favorite takes on the legend.

101 Dalmatians - Behind the Scenes

After so many financial losses, Walt Disney started to wonder if it was time to close the studio and stick with live-action films, television, and Disneyland.

Thankfully, he was persuaded to greenlight one more movie that looked promising (and inexpensive). The result, One Hundred and One Dalmatians, made more money than any of Disney’s animated films yet. Besides being responsible for keeping the now ridiculously lucrative studio open, this movie remains highly entertaining for the whole family.

Scar and the Hyenas

Scar and the Hyenas

What would heroes be without villains? They'd be boring, because they wouldn't have any challenges to face! But villains are more than just cookie-cutter enemies meant to oppose the hero. They're interesting characters in their own right, with stories and motivations of their own. That's why we focus on them with our Disney Villain Spotlight!

This time, we're discussing an evil schemer who would do anything to be King, and his army of slavering hyena minions: Scar, from The Lion King. Scar is deeply jealous of his older brother Mufasa, King of the Pride Lands, and when Mufasa's son Simba is born, Scar plots to get rid of them both so he can take the throne.

Why Villains Are Fun To Wear

Too many people forget that the Disney villains have their popularity. Although it is a given that the princesses, fairies, and other lead characters will always be popular, the villains have always had their own cachet: We all some hidden desire that needs to remain hidden, yet the Disney villain is able to express that desire, making it something that defines that character and making them just a little thrilling to see in action. Because of that cachet, the villain is instantly the person we understand the most and the one that scares us the most.
