Disney Villains Get Their Moment To Shine With This Perfectly Wicked Medley

Sometimes being bad is more fun than being good.

Every Disney film centers upon a hero who, usually with the aid of an adorable animal sidekick and a love interest, overcomes evil — but what about the villains at the root of each movie? They're as integral to the overall plot and story as the protagonist, yet they never really get the love and admiration they deserve — even if it's a little weird to be saying such a thing.

All of that changes, though, with this self-described "epic" Disney villains medley brought to us by YouTubers Peter Hollens and Whitney Avalon. As Hollens puts it quite simply: "You know who sometimes gets the very best song in the whole movie? The bad guy or gal."

The six-minute video — which Hollens said took from 8 a.m. until 5 a.m. of straight filming to get all the footage for — features himself as Scar (from The Lion King), Claude Frollo (from The Hunchback of Notre Dame), Gaston (from Beauty and the Beast), and Dr. Facilier (from The Princess and the Frog). Avalon plays Ursula (from The Little Mermaid), Lefou (from Beauty and the Beast), Mother Gothel (from Tangled), and Jafar (from Aladdin). 

These two creative forces perfectly encapsulate the iconic baddies in all aspects — from the vocals, the outfits, and the attitudes. It's nice to see lesser-known villains such as Claude Frollo, Mother Gothel, and Dr. Facilier get some attention alongside major villains such as Scar, Ursula, and Jafar. Plus, Avalon getting to gender bend a few roles was pretty great, too.
