On a darker note, Giovanna Penning’s response was, “Scar. He’s mysterious and made The Lion King interesting, he’s definitely one of the best Disney villains.”

Nico Capalia’s favorite character is, “The 63rd dalmatian of 101 Dalmatians, he isn’t very relevant, but without him, he doesn’t complete the set.”

On a more serious note, Miah Owens responds, “Princess Tiana from Princess and the Frog is such an important and my favorite character because she represents the black community, specifically black women in media and film.”

The 8th grade English teacher, Mrs. Evanow claims,”Ariel is my favorite Disney character because I love the ocean, and I remember pretending I was a mermaid when I was younger. The movie also takes me back when I watched it with my daughters.”
