Robin Hood is an English Folk Hero, whose main goal is to ensure the poor receive the wealth the rich keeps denying them. He is often seen with his ‘Merry Men’, Hood’s legend goes as far back to medieval time, yet goes on in modern day. His background is unknown but many sources believe he was once among the aristocrat, The Rich, even owning land but felt terrible for those who didn’t. It was likely due to this, Hood abandon his aristocratic and begun giving wealth to the poor and begun robbing other aristocratic people to ensure the poor’s safety. To the eyes of the aristocratic, he is seen as a villain but to the poor, a hero.


Since the beginning, Robin Hood has been books, so films and TV. However, his appearances vary demanding on the source.

Disney’s Robin Hood

In 1973, Disney made a full-length animated film called Robin Hood. However, unlike the human as he was portrayed in folklore, Hood was depicted as a fox, commonly seen in fables, yet the film follows the story as close it could.
