Disneyland's Evil Queen proves she’s 'fairest of them all' in viral video originally appeared on goodmorningamerica.com
Disney fans are falling in love with the villain we all love to hate.
Social media has decided that the Evil Queen from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’” may actually be the fairest in the land after all -- well, at least according to the queen herself.
The 12-minute video trending on Twitter and YouTube follows the queen as she interacts with Disneyland guests, or “peasants,” and demands everything from compliments to bows to acknowledgment of her “extreme” beauty. The video has amassed almost 2 million views on YouTube.
YouTuber user Fatima Lakhani posted the clip on July 31 as part of a series of videos on cast members and characters at theme parks.
“She has so much energy, she’s beautiful … and she’s really funny,” Lakhani said of Disneyland's Evil Queen.
In the video, Lakhani presents the queen with a mirror, leading to a slew of self-satisfactory remarks from the classic character.
“She’s truly talented,” Lakhani said.
Lakhani has since given the queen an apple, another mirror and a pin complete with the iconic villain’s likeness.
“She said I didn’t get her nose right, but she still looked really pretty,” Lakhani said with a laugh.
On Twitter, the video has more than 4.25 million views and 175,000 likes. Even celebrities, like Billy Eichner, have chimed in with their approval of the queen’s antics.
Lakhani said she believes others are resonating with the character’s quick wit and attention to detail.
“She’s supposed to be mean, but she does it in such a way that everybody still likes her,” Lakhani said.
Lakhani also emphasized that the response to the video has been overwhelmingly positive, and she plans to make more videos and collaborations with the queen in the future.
“They want her to have her own channel. She’s just so entertaining,” Lakhani said.
