It’s Time!

The Hunchblog is 4 years old so it’s time to look at Notre Dame de Paris. Notre Dame de Paris is a French Musical of novel which premiered on September 16th, 1998. It was a huge success and made musical fashionable in France. It also has been translated into a lot of different languages with a lot of difference casts. In fact there in a French Cast going on right now, in Korea.

Notre Dame de Paris is the version that got me to love the story of the Hunchback, so it is close to my heart. Does that mean I think show is beyond reproach? Oh Goodness no, it has flaws, oh boy does it have flaws.

I should warn everyone just used to this version because I will be talking it about for a while. There is just too much to talk about and so many casts @@.

Disney started releasing Direct to video(DVD) movies in 1994 with The Return of Jafar. Disney continued to bastardized their theatrical releases till 2007 with a prequel to The Little Mermaid called  Ariel’s Beginning. Since then they just release  TinkerBell movies.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame II

A handful of the film are decent but many are just crap including the March 19 2002 release of the sequel of The Hunchback of Notre Dame . It features some of the same characters (excluding Frollo because if got lucky and was killed off in the first film).  Quasimodo, Clopin, Esmeralda, Phoebus, Djali, Achilles and the annoying ones are back in drab colors but with the original voice actors. There also three new dull as toast characters. Plus shit for music, art design and animation.

 

If you haven’t figured out it I think this movie is crap.
