King Leonidas is the main, later secondary antagonist and also the king of the Isle of Naboombu from Disney's 1971 film Bedknobs and Broomsticks. He was advertised as the main antagonist, but this was the plot to be outranked by the final but general main villain.

Background

Physical Description

King Leonidas looks similar to Prince John from Robin Hood, but has a mane, a royal golden crown, and wears a king's red robe.

Personality

Like all lions, King Leonidas is arrogant. Even he is sensitive and temperamental. Also he possesses a deep love for the game of soccer, as seen when the royal championships on his Island could not continue when a suitable referee couldn't be found. He was extremely aggressive and roared at everything that moved.

Powers and Abilities

King Leonidas' voice is quite powerful, which can be expected from a royal lion. His yell to 'stop that ball' is powerful enough to blow everyone away to the net from its hurricane-like force.

Appearances

Bedknobs and Broomsticks

He has an anti-human attitude, which may have stemmed from the fairy tale that animals staged a coup on the Isle of Naboombu, killing the original leader, the human wizard Astoroth. He wears The Star of Astoroth, a talisman that is needed to bring inanimate objects to life. After suffering much pummeling and stampeding at a soccer game, Mr. Brown succeeds at grabbing the Star of Astoroth from him. After being alerted by his secretary bird, an enraged Leonidas tries to pursue Mr. Brown, Miss Price, and the children, but he is foiled when he is turned into a rabbit, albeit one with a lion's tail, by Miss Price. He is last seen scurrying away. As Miss Price's rabbit spells are temporary, he presumably returned to his lion form soon after.

House of Mouse

King Leonidas appeared in cameo with his servant The Secretary Bird from House of Mouse.

Trivia

  • King Leonidas is the Disney character with the loudest, booming yell ever as he bellowed, "STOP...THAT...BALL!!!!!!"
  • King Leonidas as a rabbit has a similar look to Skippy from Robin Hood.
  • Not to be confused with the other King Leonidas from 300.
