With all the 3d animation of today this movie being the traditional 2d still enthralled my grandson aged 7. A moving story which shows that beauty comes from the inside, difference is not ugly and shows some other important values. A moving story!!
Has plenty of adult themes and is a little scary at some points for the kids but definitely full of morals and still an enjoyable movie.
A favourite of mine as a child and still a favourite in my twenties!
An entertainment extravaganza packed with music, merriment and some of the most unforgettable characters ever created, Disney’s classic The Hunchback Of Notre Dame is a resounding animated wonder that’ll dazzle you everytime!
High above the city of Paris in a spectacular bell tower, the warmhearted bell-ringer Quasimodo and his outrageously funny gargoyle pals gaze upon the “Festival of Fools” – the biggest party of the year. Though forbidden to go by his evil guardian Frollo, Quasimodo bravely ventures into a world he has never known but has always dreamed about. Befriended by the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda and her feisty goat Djale, Quasimodo embarks on an awe-inspiring adventure bursting with action, suspense and extraordinary surprises.
"The misconception about this animated film from Disney was that it was a movie for kids–something Victor Hugo never had in mind. In fact, despite a cute brace of singing gargoyles who are Quasimodo's (Tom Hulce) best friends, this version of Hugo's classic tale is really adult entertainment, with a strong set of songs by Alan Menken. The story remains mostly the same (though tricked out with a happier ending than Hugo's): Quasimodo, the ward of repressive monk Frollo, falls for a gypsy girl named Esmerelda (Demi Moore)–though she loves one of the king's guards (Kevin Kline). But they are all put in jeopardy by the wicked Frollo, whose secret passion for Esmerelda leads him to seek her death. At times too dark and even a shade kinky, something that may scare younger viewers. "–Marshall Fine
