2017 Disney Villains

  • Commemorates 10 classic Disney Villains and the legacy of the Walt Disney Studios Ink & Paint Department


Stamp Category: 
Commemorative
Value:  49¢ First Class Mail Rate (Forever)
First Day of Issue:  July 15, 2017
First Day City:  Anaheim, California
Quantity Issued:  60,000,000
Printed by:  Ashton Potter (USA) Ltd.
Printing Method:  Offset
Format:  Panes of 20
Tagging:  Nonphosphored type III, gloss block tag

Why the stamps were issued:  According to the USPS, these stamps celebrate “the rich legacy of the Walt Disney Studios Ink & Paint Department.”

About the stamp designs:  The 10 stamp designs each picture a different classic Disney villain:  Maleficent, Honest John, Cruella De Vil, Captain Hook, the Queen of Hearts, Lady Tremaine, Ursula, the Queen, Gaston, and Scar.  The selvage of the pane includes a larger image of the evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  The reverse side of the pane showcases drawings of the 10 characters and quotes by each one.  The designs were created in close collaboration with Disney Creative Director David Pacheco and the Walt Disney Studios Ink & Paint Department.  They created new art especially for use on the stamps.

First Day City:  The First Day of Issue Ceremony was held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, the city that’s home to the original Disneyland park.

History the stamp represents:  Disney movies are known for beautiful princesses and happy endings.  They are reminders of childhood and their lessons translate to any age or background.  However, these films would be nothing without their clever and menacing villains.

Disney villains can be identified fairly easily when they first appear, even before they speak.  They usually have high, arching eyebrows with long, pointed chins and angular faces; green, yellow, or black eyes; unnatural skin tones; large, irregular noses; and red, purple, black, and green color schemes.  These physical traits are hardly ever found in the hero or heroine.

In addition to their appearance, villains usually share similar personality traits as well.  Disney villains in particular are almost always cruel, selfish, and manipulative.  They excel in the art of deception and know just how to get what they want.  Earlier villains were more overtly evil, while today, Disney often masks their identities to keep the audience guessing, making the plot even more thrilling.

Villains are the driving force behind most stories, especially Disney’s.  They can be funny and dramatic like Ursula and Captain Hook, or serious and imposing like Scar and the Evil Queen.  Each one has a personality that perfectly sets off the protagonist’s good qualities, providing a balance.  While the hero or princess is almost always the main character, it is often the villain who truly captures the show.
