    Disney has some of the darkest villains of all time! Subscribe to our channel for more awesome videos: bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Screenrant
    Part of what makes Disney movies so enticing is their incredible characters. We have fallen in love a million times over with heroes that rise above their status and prove themselves despite their dire situations. It never gets old! But as much as we love a Disney good guy, it’s the bad guys that keep us coming back for more. Something about their wicked ways and amoralistic tendencies are so captivating. They are often cunning, manipulative and downright sociopathic to the point where they are endlessly fascinating. Simba would be nothing without his need to defeat Scar and Mulan needs to take on Shan Yu to save her country. Without these villains, our favourite Disney films would not be the same. Today we will be looking at the backstories of 25 Disney Villains and uncovering the mysteries behind their twisted minds.
    As you’ll discover, some will actually be more layered that you think and have motive for their bad behaviour. We found out that Gaston from Beauty and the Beast suffers from wartime PTSD and that Hades from Hercules hates his job and just wants to move up the ladder. While they are not necessarily justified for their actions, you will at least see that they aren’t bad for no reason. On the flip side, you’ll learn that some villains are worse than they seem. We will reveal that in the original version Sykes from Oliver and Company kills his girlfriend and that the jealous queen from Snow White actually thinks she’s eating the young girls liver in the first version! We’ll be providing you with a mix of messed up origin stories that were watered down for young audiences, and some tales that will have you empathizing with even the most horrible of characters. Buckle up!

For Captain Hook's past, it's completely different in the book and the play "peter and the starcatcher". he's a pirate through and through, but peter thwarted him several times. you should read the book. It's not a innocent man turned evil story, he's a pirate through and through.

a HUGE part of Maleficent that you brushed over while trying to be trendy talking about "the roles too long prescribed by men" HE CUT OFF HER WINGS... he got close to her, then drugged her and HACKED OFF her wings... they're a MASSIVE plot point of the movie...

In Maleficent. That is wholly incorrect. "She got ghosted." Um no lol? She put her trust and faith in him, loved him, and he literally betrayed her (drugged her and cut off her wings) all so he could be the heir to the throne. That's a completely different outcome than "getting ghosted"

@RileyEscobar It's as though they don't understand it 'being unfortunate Ursula is a rare plus sized representation' or describing Maleficent as a "Feminist reclamation" sounds an aweful lot like 'And then God inspired Angeline Jolie to portray a fallen demon to show people the path to Jesus.'

The Hades part is totally wrong and if you go ahead and say “well how do you know” I would just tell that I just learned this in school so back off. Now for the real story. Zeus got the sky Poseidon got the sea and Hades was NOT just left with the underworld. He just didn’t like sunlight. He liked darkness more and in the underworld is where he could be in the darkest place and he probably just doesn’t get enough Vitamin D which makes him sad and mad. Also Persephone doesn’t like it very much in the underworld and since it looks as if it is summer in the real world, that probably means Persephone isn’t there and Hades is sad and alone.

One Disney villain who almost had an interesting backstory was Oogie Boogie from THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS. We know him simply as a sadistic gambler who's basically a burlap sack filled with bugs. But the way screenwriter Caroline Thompson originally conceived him, Oogie was actually the alter ego of Dr. Finkelstein, who wanted to ruin Jack Skellington because he was jealous that Sally had more affection for Jack than for him. In the rough cut of the film, when Oogie disintegrates, Finkelstein is revealed as the puppeteer controlling the bug-filled sack, and he has quite a bit of explaining to do!

Ok. The reason for Scar's evil is that his given name was Swahili for trash. Also in The Lion Guard, it's revealed that Scar had a power that was taken from him after he attempted to take power from himself. So Hamlet is not an adequate response
