We all know those Disney heroes and princesses but today I want to talk about those villains we all love to hate, or sometimes just plain hate. What if you were made to understand them and who they are. Would it change your view on them or how you feel? Well, some movies are making me ask that very question. Like "Maleficent", or the recent "Cruella" that just came out. Everyone has an origin story from heroes to princesses, and yes even villains. The question becomes "how did they become that way?" What made them, as we like to say, so evil?
Well now movies are exploring answers to those questions. For example, with "Cruella", I just recently saw it and it was wonderful I might add. So, what made Cruella de Vil want to make a fur Dalmatian coat? Well without giving to much away, let’s just say it all starts with the parents and goes from there. Also, we learn how she met Jasper and Horace and how her name came to be. Now there’s a lot more twists and turns in this movie that I won’t mention, because trust me you really should check it out for yourself. Now, back to that question from earlier, I can’t really tell how you’d feel, but me personally, do I like what she tried to do?
No, no and no again, just being clear on that. But I do understand her and how she came to be the way she is. But that doesn’t mean I suddenly like Cruella. I just understand her more.
Like everyone she has a story that should be told.
