Disney villains immortalised on US postal stamps

Press Trust of India  |  Anaheim (California) 

The US Postal Service honoured the rich legacy of the Walt Disney Studio's Ink and Paint Department by dedicating a sheet of 20 "Forever" stamps, featuring 10 classic Disney villains.

Postmaster general Megan J Brennan made the announcement at the ongoing D23 Expo, where he was joined by other Disney officials.

"The Postal Service is highlighting the Disney villains and the pioneering spirit of the Ink and Paint Department that brought many of these characters to life.

"These Forever stamps are our way of saying Disney villains will forever entertain us and serve as a tribute Disney's artistry and storytelling skill," said Brennan.

Each stamp showcases one of 10 classic Disney villains set against a blue background.

The Queen ('Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'), John ('Pinocchio'), Lady Tremaine ('Cinderella'), the Queen of Hearts ('Alice in Wonderland') and Captain Hook ('Peter Pan'), Ursula ('The Little Mermaid'), Gaston ('Beauty and the Beast') and Scar ('The Lion King') are the characters that feature on the stamps.

Customers have 60 days to obtain the first-day-of-issue postmark by mail.
