    16 Disney Villains Ranked By How Much They Deserve An Origin Story Movie

    I still can't believe they made Cruella before Ursula.

    Now that Emma Stone's Cruella has graced the multiplex with its presence, it's time to answer the question that Disney executives must be asking themselves at this very moment: Who's next?

    But fear not, Extremely Powerful Multinational Entertainment Conglomerate. I'm here to deliver a ranking of which villains most deserve their own big budget, live-action, questionably-necessary-at-best origin story.

    Just so you know, this ranking is neither comprehensive nor determined by anything other than my own personal feelings, so with that in mind, let's make some wild guesses about what will be coming to a theater near you in 2025 or so.
