Continuing my Disney week, today I’m going to share my
Favourite Disney sidekicks
Now, to me a sidekick can be the thing that makes or breaks the main character. There are SO MANY brilliant sidekicks in Disney films: from animals, to humans, to robots… all kinds of everything. I have a fondness for lots of different sidekicks in Disney films.
In no particular order (although, I definitely have a favourite on this list!), here goes:
Lumiere and Cogsworth – Beauty and the Beast
(and probably all of the furniture in the castle)
Like everything else in Beauty and the Beast, I love these two. They’re the perfect mix. The two of them make me laugh a lot. Lumiere and his incessant optimism and Cogsworth with his tendency to worry. These two, for me are excellent additions and make excellent sidekicks. The Beast and Belle are lucky to have them around. (Their portrayals in the live action movie were absolutely spot on too!)
Genie – Aladdin.
C’mon. Who wouldn’t want a genie? Granting you wishes and being sassy. He’s hilarious, loyal and full of attitude. Plus he can sing. What more does a film need? I love Robin Williams and this portrayal of Genie is one of my favourite Disney characters.
Pascal – Tangled
This dude may only be a chameleon but he’s full of attitude and he looks after Rapunzel brilliantly! He’s funny and sassy – a perfect combination for a sidekick.
Baymax – Big Hero 6
Hello, my name is Steph and I love Baymax SO MUCH. He’s funny, unintentionally, reliable and caring. I love him so much. Big Hero 6 is one of those films I can watch over and over again and it’s because of Baymax – he just makes me laugh.
Zazu – Lion King
Bossy and sarcastic. Zazu makes me laugh. He’s got a great manner – he doesn’t like to stand for Simba’s attitude. Plus, he’s voiced by Rowan Atkinson – a very funny man!
- Abu and Magic carpet – Aladdin
- Little John – Robin Hood
- Dory – Finding Nemo
- Maximus – Tangled
- Phillipe – Beauty and the Beast
So there you go! Again, don’t hold me to this list in like a day/a month/a year… it will have changed!
