The week’s film quiz is a villain takeover, including Disney baddies and other assorted demons and wrong’uns.
This week, we’ve got a lot of questions about royals, career criminals, and dastardly advisors, but that’s enough about the news – with Cruella now in cinemas and on Disney+ Premium Access, we’re looking at Disney’s animated rogues’ gallery. It’s your textbook wretched hive of scum and villainy, this week’s quiz, with notable baddies scattered all the way through.
Once you’ve completed all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. That is, if you make it to the end – maniacal laugh… MANIACAL LAUGH…!
