Nothing sets off our nostalgia glands quite like the cartoons of our childhood, after all “we love the Disney“. But for every hero we saw on screen, there was an antagonist foiling their every move – and in the eyes of many Maltese, there are no villains greater than our politicians.
1. Norman Lowell – Scar
The Lion King
Alternating between graceful charm (and a tendency to swap between languages) and pure rage at the drop of a hate… err I mean hat.
2. Konrad Mizzi – Prince John
Let’s be real here, their laughs are basically identical.
3. Lawrence Gonzi – Frollo
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Poised and sober, with a tendency to skew towards more conservative values.
4. Justyne Caruana – Cruella Deville
When the anger is real… it’s very real.
5. Austin Gatt – Hades
6. Natius Farrugia – Ursula
The Little Mermaid
Fab to the core, and let’s be real – which Disney villain would love the Eurovision as much as Ursula?
7. Franco Debono – Jafar
If screaming “you will make me sultan!!” and carrying around a pappagall doesn’t spell out Franco Debono, we’re not sure what does.
8. Marlene Farrugia – Yzma
The Emperors New Groove
A close adviser of the emperor, who decided he wasn’t really that great at his job and that she could definitely do better – Yzma’s part in ‘The Emperors New Groove‘ and kinda the trajectory of the orange party.
9. Therese Comodini Cachia, Miriam Dalli & Roberta Metsola – Step Sisters
Does that make Schulz Prince Charming?
10. Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando – Gaston
Beauty and the Beast
“No one… fights like Gaston” ♫
11. Carmel Cacopardo – Madam Mim
The Sword in the Stone
We’ll just leave this one here…
