Cartoon characters live forever, even the villains last seen falling into bottomless chasms, getting skewered by a ship’s prow, or being eaten (in silhouette only) by ravenous hyenas. Their stories don’t end with the voice-actors’ credits.

Disney, proprietor of media as diverse as “Frozen,” “Star Wars,” Marvel, and National Geographic, is always rummaging around in Mickey’s vault for “classics” to be re-cast in live action. Some of the worst Disney villains make the best show stoppers. Without Maleficent, Sleeping Beauty would be a snorer. Without the evil Queen/Witch, Snow White would be a documentary about diminutive hillbillies.
