Fans miss Disney’s queer-coded villains



The article talks about Disney's history of villains who could be read as queer-coded, how Jafar and Scar aren't as fun in the new remakes because those traits have been removed, and what this might mean for Ursula in the upcoming Little Mermaid film.

"Disney’s old habit of queer-coding villains may have been wrong and even hurtful, but the result was a roster full of delightfully entertaining, often scene-stealing characters that young viewers could interpret as LGBTQ. It wasn’t perfect representation, no, but it was representation nonetheless."
