The Reason I’m late – I live in New England and over the weekend there was a large snow storm which caused a lot of power outages and it postponed Trick or Treating till Nov 3rd, so yeah… I forgot

So it’s Friday and it’s right before Halloween and what’s more Halloween than Costumes? Candy but Costumes are more fun. Here are some Cosplayers of Esmeralda.

Now something my readers may not know; I’ve actually have been cosplaying (off and on) since 2002. In 2010, I started making an Esmeralda’s green dress from Notre Dame de Paris for Anime Boston following the French Design. Let’s just say it ended in failure and I never finished it. I may revisit remaking it someday but for now enjoy these pictures of the costume pieces and  the pretty fabric. (Please note, I took these pictures very quickly just for this post, this way my cosplay efforts wouldn’t have been in vain)

Sarousch Sequel Hunchback of Notre Dame II Disney picture image

Sarousch Hunchback of Notre Dame II Disney

To be fair any villain when compare in direct opposition to Frollo  is going to look weak and lack luster, so Saroush being in a sequel of Hunchback didn’t stand a chance. The only way he would had avoided negative comparison was if his deeds were far more despicable than Frollo’s which means he would have had to kill many cute things but since this film is about Quasimodo getting a girlfriend that was not going to happen.

Being in a direct to DVD sequel, Saroush was doom from the start, I mean no one takes those movies seriously, No One! Saroush is a Gypsy circus master who wants to be rich. To get rich he steals from his patrons but he has his sights on La Fidèle. It’s curious though, Saroush has exotic animals in his circus which includes but not limited to three elephants, two giraffes, and a zebra. Any of those animals  would have worth more than the Bell. He also seems to employ some magic tricks that look more like magic than illusions, ex the transporting balls into the crowd. Not sure how that one could be explained but it seems that would have been a boon to his stealing. So he’s greedy and dumb.

Beside being a “criminal mastermind” he is VERY vain. He has pictures of himself in his cart that can change to mirrors, so he can see himself. He also wears a corset (griddle) and a hair piece. Not sure if this is only for comedy or if they is some under lying commentary on a youth obsessed culture? No it’s just for shits and giggles and to make him look stupid when he gets his comeuppance at the end seeing him all fat, bald and old (actually there is some commentary on youth obsession). Actually my guess is Saroush’s vanity harkens back to Quasimodo and how awesome he is even if he’s ugly. Remember the first rule of a Hunchback cartoon for kids, drive the “ it doesn’t  matter what you look like” moral over the edge. To reiterate Saroush is greedy, dumb, and vain yet ugly.

Saroush is also ruthless. When he gets idea in his head he will do anything to achieve those means even someone has to get hurt. He also blackmails and uses guilt to get what he wants. He sets up Madeline to be arrested by telling Phoebus that she wanted the bell just as a distraction. He then also kidnapped Phoesbus’ son Zephyr and threaten  the boy to ensure his get away.  Saroush is greedy, dumb, vain yet ugly and an Asshole.

Now in the scope of villain, being greedy, dumb, vain yet ugly and an Asshole isn’t bad, but Saroush’s non sequitur about referring to things as lovely, his nicknames for Madeline (trinket, Eclair, Bonbon, and other anachronistic treats of the 19th century), and his reference to his underwear make him  comic and not scary or menacing as a  villain. But what chance did he have  of being a Villain whose main objective is to steal a jewel encrusted bell on the inside.

That being said I kind of enjoy his stupid antics and he’s voiced by Michael McKean who played Mr. Green in Clue and I love that movie (it was my childhood). However Saroush is a lousy villain but at least he’s entertaining.

Madeline Sequel Hunchback of Notre Dame II Disney picture image

Madeline Hunchback of Notre Dame II Disney

The First new character in the Sequel is Madeline. She is Quasimodo’s love interest. Her backstory is that when she was six she stole food from Sarousch and effectively became his slave. She works as Sarousch’s assistant in which primarily means “standing there and looking pretty” but I’m sure that’s just fancy talk for misdirection.  Madeline is cursed by the burden of being pretty. She has short blond hair, blue eyes, red lips, and slim; very  conventional looks.

Madeline however is not content to be Sarousch’s assistant, she wants to be a Tight Rope Walker. Saroush keeps her in line by saying that her looks are the only thing she has to contribute. Woe is her! This causes her to have low self-esteem, which is perfect for Quasimodo. He is self-loathing about his looks and so is she. She’s also attractive and for some reason Quasimodo is only interested in pretty girls so much for look not being important. So basically Quasimodo tries to convince her that there is more to people than the looks and since that’s her struggle she can accepts Quasimodo for the person he is on the inside. Actually given how creepy Quasimodo is in this film he would have said anything her to get her to like him but that’s a different topic.

As far as personality goes she’s kind of ditz who loves bad puns andwho talks to much. She’s also clumsy. Since She can see the gargoyles this means according to Quasimodo that she has an imagination @_@. Sure she’s sweet enough but compare to Esmeralda or most Disney heroines she’s bland. Naturally I would like to say she’s the blandest of the new characters but she is not. At least she gets some character development, we know she wants to be though,  more than just a pretty girl and at least that’s worth something in this lame excuse for money erm movie. The problem is that we don’t see what that something more is. Is it her capacity to love Quasimodo? Because that’s not enough to make her interesting beyond looks (which isn’t  that interesting either). I’m not sure what “something more” is that Quasimodo sees, I can guess though  but not without being vulgar.

So I typically make a video for the movies I review. I did the 1939 and the Disney. Here’s my video for the sequel,

One of the “selling” point of the sequel is the return of main characters with their original voice actors. Try and guess which pictures are from the sequel, I  bet you’ll be shocked.

Quasimodo – In this movie Quasimodo wants to be in love. He meets new character Madeline and tries to convince her that he’s awesome. It works because she’s has low self-esteem.

Clopin– Clopin is in this movie, though he does very little. He’s once again the Master of Ceremonies for the Le Jour d’Amour and that’s it.

Esmeralda– She’s a wife, mother, dancer, and fortune-teller. She retains her sassiness but other than that she doesn’t do that much. Oh and she wears shoes now.

Phoebus– He’s a father and Captain of the Guards. He doesn’t trust the circus people and he’s makes kind of a jerk out of himself.

The Gargoyles – They don’t do that much and don’t contribute that much to the importances of the plot and yet still they are still annoying.  However they have one decent joke.

Achilles– Achilles somehow learned how to count, I guess he’s not the dimwit any more and he gets a girlfriend. Thank you movie for making single people feel bad with your random coupling of  horses

 

So  yeah the main characters from the first film are there but other than Quasimodo they do not do that much. They’re really just side characters, just there as a selling point so you’ll watch thinking you’ll see your favorite return but no it’s mostly Quasimodo and the New Characters.

 

Next Time – New characters starting with Quasimodo’s main squeeze Madeline
