‘Disney Villains’ Coming To Dark Horse Comics

Does anyone else remember that Disney Villains series that was rumored for Disney+? There hasn’t really been mention of it for a while, but fans look to be getting what they want now after all. Dark Horse Comics has announced a new Disney Villains comic book series, coming in June.

The first story looks to be centered around Ursula from The Little Mermaid. Writer Sherri L. Smith and artist Gabriele Bagnoli will be the team for this first miniseries DISNEY VILLAINS: URSULA AND THE SEVEN SEAS. Based on the synopsis, it looks to be a prequel:

“Long before the events of Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Ariel’s quest to be a part of the human world, Ursula was one of seven sea witches, who each ruled one of the Seven Seas with impunity. But when one of Ursula’s sea sisters is found stripped of all her powers, Ursula must find the culprit…And among the merfolk, there is one who dares defy the reign of the sea witches.”

Talking about the project, Smith said, “I’ve always been a fan of the Little Mermaid, both Andersen’s original story and the Disney movie. With DISNEY VILLAINS: URSULA AND THE SEVEN SEAS, I was able to add my own twist to those wonderful tales. Remember, for every witch you are told about, there’s a goddess you’ve forgotten. What a treat it is to give Disney’s most decadent villain her due!”

The wicked fun begins June 24, 2020.
