I'm the queen of mean!
~ Queen Gnorga
You wanna act like a troll? BE A TROLL!
~ Queen Gnorga to Gus before turning him into a troll.

Queen Gnorga, also simply known as Gnorga, is the main antagonist in Don Bluth's 1994 animated fantasy film A Troll in Central Park. She is the evil and tyrannical queen of the trolls in Troll World and the self-proclaimed "Queen of Mean", who enjoys suffering and nasty things, and she hates flowers and anything beautiful. Her enchanted purple thumb can turn people and things into stone. She also has her husband named King Llort.

She was voiced by Cloris Leachman, who also played Hydia in the 1986 film My Little Pony: The Movie, Ida Kenzel in Malcolm in the Middle, Frau Blucher in Young Frankenstein, and Dotty in My Name is Earl.

Biography

At the beginning of the film, after her royal guards captured a happy, empathetic, and flower-loving troll named Stanley, Queen Gnorga and her husband came to the royal courts, which she usually presides over and ordered a punishment for Stanley. Originally, Stanley was sentenced to be turned into stone, but Llort convinces his wife to banish him to a place where there are supposedly "no flowers". Gnorga agreed and banished the troll from their kingdom to the human world.

Later, Gnorga finds out that the world where she banished Stanley to was filled with flowers and blamed her husband, calling him a moron. Gnorga then took matters into her own hands and forces Llort to come with her to the human world to take care of the problem.

Near the end of the film, Gnorga finally manages to turn Stanley into a stone statue by forcing a boy named Gus (whom Gnorga turned into a troll) to put his magic thumb on Stanley. Despite having done the deed, Stanley's magic start to catch up following Gnorga previously losing to a thumb war with Stanley, causing Gnorga to transform into a rosebush as retribution, much to her shock and discomfort. With her magic undone, she, Llort and their pet dog, are drawn into her own tornado transported back to Troll World in shame, and Gus is turned back into a human to would revive Stanley with a temporary green thumb. Gnorga presumably remains a rosebush, though it is noticeably doubtful that she was killed - at any rate, she would have been most displeased, as her hatred of flowers was so intense and excessive that she would literally banish any troll that dared plant any in her realm.

As the queen of the trolls, Gnorga also had access to magic that allowed her to spy on the human world and she had a fondness for children crying - the sound of which was completely sufficient to attract her attention even from her distant realm.

Personality

Gnorga is the oppressive, dictatorial, totalitarian, uncompromising and mean-spirited queen of the trolls. She is wicked, nasty, rude, arrogant, manipulative and short-tempered, so she has the power to turn living things into stone. She wants to turn Stanley into stone, but Llort would rather banish the good-natured and supportive troll to a place "rock and steel" and "nothing grows" which is Central Park in New York City. As Gnorga finds out that Stanley's punishment is too soft, she decides to take manners in her own wicked hands to finish Stanley herself. She is also very crotchety, argumentative, opprobrious, abusive, insulting and vituperative towards Llort and others.

Trivia

  • She is probably the most forgotten of Don Bluth's villains, as "A Troll in Central Park" was an extremely heavy box office bomb and was panned by millions of critics and audiences worldwide.
  • An Isrealite in the late George MacDonald's 1883 fantasy novel "The Princess and Curdie" resembles her when she scolds her husband after he sees Curdie and Princess Irene riding on Fleet which is now present day Iraq.
  • She is inspired by Ursula from Disney's 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid, when she is between a mythical creature and a witch.
  • Gnorga is the first female main antagonist in a Don Bluth film, who would be followed by a second female main antagonist Ludmilla.
  • Her real age is unknown, but the actress providing her voice was around 68 years old at the time.
