For the most part, Disney villains tend to be unequivically evil. Scar in The Lion King kills his brother to claim Pride Rock. Ursula steals Ariel's voice and sends her to land for no other reason than making King Tritan miserable in The Little Mermaid. There's nothing redeemable about either. There are, however, some Disney baddies that might actually have a decent point to make. Is Chef Skinner in Ratatouille wrong for trying to report a rat in his own kitchen? Do we really think Captain Hook is pure evil for seeking revenge on the forever-boy who left him with one hand? Even with Beauty and the Beast's Gaston-- easily one of the most unlikeable characters in Disney history-- we can ask this question: Is it a bad thing to want to rescue a young woman who has been taken prisoner by a monstrous loner?
