I wanna say Frollo or Lady Tremaine, or Ursula, or Maleficent. But I haven't seen Hunchback in forever. I just now realize how killer Lady Tremaine is, how evil she is to Cinderella, torturous and degrading and life-ruining instead of just murderous.
To a lesser extent, and from personal experience, Mother Gothel is a terrifying character. I have dealt with behaviour like that from my own mother (remarks, slight digs so only you would notice); that all seemed very real, and very well portrayed on screen.
Byron Howard and Nathan Greno, the directors, asked women at Disney what mean things there mother said to them. I was shocked to hear that, because Mother Gothel is not her real mother. But since seeing the movie, she, to me, does have feelings of motherly love for Rapunzel and sometimes acts accordingly, but as a mean mother. When I saw the film with my mom, I whispered to her, "I know you really
love me" because Mother Gothel was too convincing as a mother when she didn't love her the way a real mother should. I think the whole "I love you", "I love you more", "I love you most" dialogue shouldn't have been in the film because real mothers and children who truly do love each other do that! What if that makes families who do that feel like they don't really love each other?
By the way Atlantica
, your mother should never do that to someone as sweet and wonderful as you!
The success and degree of adoption of the upcoming feature into canon will undoubtedly muddy this water, unfortunately.
The live-action film won't be "canon". The 2014 live-action Maleficent will not be the 1950 animated Maleficent, the true Maleficent. They can't even be the same because they will both give Aurora different curses and the endings of their stories will be different.
