Disney is well known to portraying positive characters which very often become favorites for kids and role models for generations. Nevertheless, when you become an adult you realize that the real villain is the hero. While they do brave things but very often they hurt someone who doesn’t deserve it. Can you guess which heroes got it all wrong?
Aladdin (Aladdin, 1992)
Most of us remember the beautiful love story of Aladdin and Jasmine, but most of the time Aladdin shows the features that don’t make him a hero at all. It is easy to forget that Aladdin is actually a thief and a liar as he uses everyone around him for his benefit.
Woody (Toy story, 1995)
Woody is kids’ favorite but he actually is quite bossy and only does what he wants. We might think that Sid is a nasty kid but he is just a normal kid and shouldn’t be hurt by a toy he even doesn’t know is alive. Not to mention he is a bit selfish and can’t accept any other toy being better than him.
King Triton (The Little Mermaid, 1989)
Father of Ariel and the ruler of Atlantica has enough authority to solve most of the problems in the kingdom. Yet his own foolishness leads to the argument with his daughter and all other events which could have been avoided. We still don’t know why Ursula was kicked out of Atlantica and this discredits him even more.
Joy (Inside Out, 2015)
The cartoon loved by both kids and adults shows hidden life of emotions and while we think Anger should be a total jerk, it’s actually Joy who tries to control everything and doesn’t let other emotions to contribute to Riley’s life. You can’t be always happy without experiencing some sadness and that’s what Joy had to learn.
Merida (Brave, 2012)
While Merinda was picked as a role model for young girls as she tries to solve her problems by herself, she appears to be very selfish and egoistic. She is stubborn and strong but at the same time she rejects almost everything her mother says. There is nothing wrong with being feminine and that’s what Brave should have showed too.
Simba (The Lion King, 1994)
While being a nice jolly lion cub Simba also resembles his uncle Scar a lot. His desire to be always right harms his family and causes a lot of commotion which is not deserved by anyone. He’s silly and spoiled kid but he becomes smarter by the end of the movie.
