Johnston and Thomas Together Again! Feb. 3 2000
By rareoopdvds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Anything by these two wonderful authors and amazing animators should be a must in anyone's collection. Yet, I am baffled that all of their books are currently out of print. I am sure one will not have trouble looking at a used bookstore for a copy of this. This book deals precisely with what the title says: The Disney Villians. In their usual classic and lucid style, the authors discuss the troubles they ran while devising a villian. One that is wicked, yet appealing to the audience. Going through their catalog of movies from Snow White to Aladdin, they discuss in detail what a villian is all about, and how the villian relates to the story, style and main character of each film. Whether one should be more realistic, or have harder edges, or what kind of mannerisms will this villian have. Highly reccomended for the animator and artist, as well as the Disney book lover as these are presented so well. For the enthuseist, which I also own, there is also a more expensive version of this book, hardcover with a slipcase, signed by each of the authors and a print of the filmstrip from Snow White.

A Worthwhile Read For Any Disney Fan! July 11 1998
By Shawn Farrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Who better to bring us the history of the villain in Disney films than two people responsible for the creation of so many of them? Ollie Johnson and Frank Thomas' remarkable survey of the history of bad guys begins with the obligatory history of Disney animation and proceeds to describe all of the villains created from the earliest cartoon shorts to Aladdin. Concept drawings, poster art and stills from the film make up the many illustrations and each film is described along with interesting information on each villain discussed. The one drawback - an obvious one when dealing with so prolific a studio - is the fact that this book cuts off at Aladdin, missing the many sinister villains that followed, notably Scar, and Hades.

THE PRICE I PAID WAS FAIR. I HAVEN'T had time to read thru. but did thumb thru and book is in great condition , except when u first open the book something was either removed on purpose or torn on accident. but still a great buy.

It is a really amazing book. The only thing that is wrong is that because this book came out in the 90's the chronicles of the villains only go up to Jafar from Aladdin.

Really interesting book for all the disney villains lovers even though I personally would have liked to see more concept art. But still, I'm glad I bought it.
