King Leonidas is the king of the Isle of Naboombu from Disney's 1971 film Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
He has an anti-human attitude, as it may have stemmed from a fairy tale that animals staged a coup on the Isle of Naboombu, killing the original leader, the human wizard Asteroth. Leonidas wears the Star of Astaroth, a talisman that is needed to bring inanimate objects to life. After suffering much pummelling and stampeding at a soccer game, Emilius Brown succeeds at grabbing the Star of Asteroth from Leonidas. This causes an enraged Leonidas 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 rabbit spells are temporary, King Leonidas presumably returned to his lion form.
King Leonidas appeared in cameo with his servant The Secretary Bird from House of Mouse.
