I did a series of all female Disney Villains. I’m probably missing some, but these were all I could think of. I did them every now and then per request, but now there are so many we have no idea what to do with them haha. They creep me out a little…
I’m not a big fan of The Sword In The Stone. It’s got a whole pile of pacing, plot, acting and character problems - and the music isn’t particularly exciting either. Most of the songs are spoken rather than sung and only serve to pad out the film’s vague plot even more. That includes the one featured here but I really don’t mind in this case, because it's Mad Madam Mim and she can do no wrong. (Or can she only do wrong? Hmmm…)
I’d say that Madam Mim is easily the most overlooked villain in Disney’s archive. She’s a real tour de force - incredibly powerful and yet so utterly insane that she’s hilarious. Her scenes are by far the best part of the film (it’s a shame that she’s just another ten minute distraction in the plot’s meandering journey towards its anti-climax) and the song introduces her perfectly. She knows she’s evil, she knows she’s crazy and she loves it.
Disney villains are always at their best when they’re enjoying themselves and nobody gets as excited about evil as Mim. She’s a complete riot.
So this trip was my first introduction to the Disney Vinlymation figurines and I’m not exactly sold on the whole thing. That being said, when was the last time you saw a Mad Madam Mim figurine? There was no way I, lover of all Arthurian things, was going to pass her up.
