There aren’t many things that are better than a Disney movie. That mainly because of the awesome supporting characters. Just picture this: a prequel all about Mulan’s grandmother. And yes, it would come with all the sass the granny has, but in the form of a hilarious teenager. Or maybe you’re curious about what really happens to the Genie after he is set free. I know I am dying to find out and I would chew my fingernails from the moment they’d announce the movie release till I could go see it in a theater. Enough beating around the bush, let’s take a look at the Disney movies that should actually exist.
1. Boo from Monsters, Inc.
We all fell head over heels with the two year old from “Monsters, Inc.” rooting for her to be saved and brought back home safe and sound. And now imagine what it would be like to follow Boo through her teenage years. Would she turn goth or become a cheerleader? Either way, we would all be holding our breath for her possible reunion with Sulley.
2. Ursula from The Little Mermaid
We don’t know that much about Ursula, which means anything would be possible in a hypothetical prequel. There are so many questions to be answered. Why is she no longer allowed in the kingdom? What happened to her before she was banished? Come on, Disney, let you writers take the reins of this one and prove to everyone Ursula was not always a villain, and that deep down she’s all kindness and generosity.
3. Fairy Godmother from Cinderella
Cinderella can’t possibly be the only one to need the help of the Fairy Godmother, am I right? So wouldn’t it be awesome if we could see whom she helps next? It could be a character we’re already familiar with, or a completely new one. We’re open to suggestions, as long as we get to find out what’s up with the Godmother’s mysterious appearance and how come she can lend a helping hand to good people?
4. The Beast from Beauty and the Beast
I can’t be the only one dying to see the backstory here. Imagine the poster for “Beast and the Beauty”. We would finally get the chance to see more of this intriguing character, what he went through and how he got where he is.
5. The mice from Cinderella
But really, any mice Disney movie would do. There can be so many adventures to be had and so many funny and ridiculous situations to go through. Also, there should be cheese involved.
6. The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland
This would be a deliciously insane prequel. Although I would like to insist Helena Bonham Carter be given a role in this one. Going back to the Mad Hatter, the possibilities are limitless here as well. You can build a lot around “we’re all mad here”. Let’s see, was he always “special” or was he once small and innocent like Alice?
7. Hades from Hercules
Who wouldn’t want to watch a movie all about the lord of the dead? Here’s a suggestion, Disney. Hades could be up there mingling with la crème de la crème and secretly conspiring to overthrow Zeus from power.
8. Pegasus from Hercules
I’m aware Pegasus didn’t possess the gift of the gab, but “Wall-E” already set a precedent for these kinds of characters. Wouldn’t you be curious to see what he was up to while Hercules was busy growing up? I would buy myself and five other friends a ticket right now.
