Disney villain songs

Here you'll find all the songs performed by villains of Disney movies (which also expand to their stage adaptations). Along you'll find context (composers and performers, movie/musical song comes from + trivia).

Pictured: Scar, from 'The Lion King' (1994), singing 'Be Prepared'. A personal choice of mine since it's my favorite movie ever Wink smile

Will be slowly updated.

- Written by Elton John and Tim Rice.
- From 'The Lion King' (1994).
- Performed in the film and soundtrack by Jeremy Irons (Scar), with Whoopi Goldberg (Shenzi), Cheech Marin (Banzai), and Jim Cummings (Ed). It was later revealed that Cummings did most of Scar's singing since Jeremy's voice had an issue.

- This new song, written for the musical, appears to show how delirious Scar became after rising to the throne.
- It was planned, but ultimately deleted, from the original 1994 movie, due to its heavy thematics. It also had a sexual connotation that wasn't suitable for a family movie.
