Thursday Trivia

Thanks for playing along today! We are having a blast with our Disney villains trivia for the month of October. We hope you are enjoying it as much as we are! Ready for some answers?

Question 1: Name a Disney villain that doesn’t have their own theme song. ~S ºoº

Answer 1: I’m sure there may be more, but the ones that came to my mind were Shan Yu (Mulan), The Evil Queen (Snow White), and Lady Tremaine (Cinderella).


Question #2: Who are the “Overtakers” and what is their mission? Bonus points if you can name some of them! ~M °o°


Answer #2: The Overtakers are the group of Disney villains that live within the WDW parks as told by Ridley Pearson’s book series, the Kingdom Keepers. Their mission is to de-throne Mickey himself and reside as the rulers of the magic. Although Maleficent seems to be the main villain leading this group, she works with the likes of the Evil Queen, Cruella de Vil, the pirates of the Caribbean, the test track dummies, the green army men, Tia Dalma, and together, they bring to power the most dreaded of all Disney villains, Chernabog himself!


Question 3: Which Disney villain’s name is based on a real life betrayal of Walt Disney? ~A °o°


Answer 3: Charles Muntz from Up is based on Charles Mintz, the producer who “stole” Oswald the Lucky Rabbit’s design from Walt Disney, and then signed most of Disney’s own animators up on a contract to work for Mintz’s new studio. Walt Disney started over with his loyal animator, Ub Iwerks, and Mickey Mouse was born as a result. I guess we should thank Mintz, huh? (Source)
