Once Upon a Time‘s fourth season bands together Cruella, Ursula, and Maleficent to create the villainous trio, The Queens of Darkness. But how much do you know about the original Disney tales?
Before Adam Horowitz and Eddie Kitsis got hold of Cruella, Ursula, and Maleficent, they each has their own roles in the Disney canon. One threatened a sleepy kingdom from a dark tower, another destroyed a young girl’s romance from the depths of the ocean, while the third sped through London plotting to steal puppies once their spots came in. The classics, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, and 101 Dalmatians, all gave children villains to root against. Our Once Upon a Time quiz focuses on these tales, even if Kitsis and Horowitz’s are more appealing!
In Storybrooke and the Enchanted Forest, things go a bit differently. Ursula mingles with Snow White and Prince Charming and spent some time working at an aquarium. Cruella resigned to a life in Long Island, New York with a wealthy husband and holds the magical power of persuasion over animals. Maleficent made an early appearance in Once Upon a Time‘s first season, but then seemingly died in dragon form. But another character with a connection to a spindle, Rumpelstiltskin, has a few tricks up his sleeve to revive the heart of pure evil.
Once Upon a Time may twist the tales quite a bit, but the characters still stick to their roots. Take a trip down memory lane and let us know how much you remember from the Disney classics in our Once Upon a Time quiz!
