The Case for Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Hunchback is the metaphorical Quasimodo of the disney animated feature film canon--weird, hidden away, and relegated to its master's hairshirt. Some common and consistent criticisms of the film have cropped up over the years, but they often miss crucial context and the original goal of Victor Hugo's dark tale of human brutality.
But don't worry everyone. We're here to fix colonialism, y'all.
Wait, wrong video.

Quasimodo had never had a single friend or companion up until meeting Esmerelda. Of course he would get a crush on her - but he didn't know her very well. It wasn't true love, it was infatuation with the first person to show him kindness, to value him as a human being, who also happened to be a beautiful woman and the first girl he'd ever been able to interact with beyond someone being horrified at the sight of him. It makes perfect sense that he'd get a crush, but it's also a really mature take to recognize how superficial that emotion would be. Quasimodo admired Esmerelda's strength and beauty, and was shocked that she treated him like a person, and at that point couldn't imagine anyone else treating him that way. But by the end of the film, he recognizes that A) Esmerelda doesn't see him that way, and is love with someone else, B) he respects her opinions and decisions, unlike Frollo and C) there is value in a nonromantic/physical relationship with Esmerelda, something Frollo doesn't see. Quasimodo decides that he wants to be in Esmerelda's life, rather than only wanting her around if she'd his girlfriend, and that's something we very rarely see in films. If the guy gets rejected, more often than not he never sees or talks to the girl again, unlike here where he's shown embracing a life that involves both Esmerelda and Pheobus. Despite their rocky start, Pheobus is literally Quasimodo's second friend ever, and first male friend, once he lets go of the unnecessary testosterone competitiveness for Esmerelda's attention. Companions who legitimately care about you are just as, if not more, valuable and essential than a romantic partner, something all too often ignored for men. It's a take I really wish was in more films, rather than just obsessing which guy gets rewarded with a wife or girlfriend, or simplifying women down to which man they chose to be with at the end. There are a ton of chick flicks glorifying female friendships and "sisterhood", but very little of that for men, who have the same needs for social ties and support and positive reinforcement. No, Quasimodo doesn't get the girl, but he does escape his abusive mentor/father figure and find acceptance and support with a group of friends and peers that value him as a person - and that's a far more powerful ending than a sexy lamp reward.

I think the gargoyles could have turned out well if they kept them as "figments of Quasi's imagination." Their light hearted, jovial nature being a coping method for the decades of abuse that Quasi only subconsciously realizes. But as they are depicted they function in this weird nebulous gray area. None of the other named characters interact with them, but there are still interactions between them and the goat or the soldiers attacking Notre Dame. We shouldn't even see them interacting with each other if Quasi isn't there.

Ya know something I like about both Esmerelda and Jasmine is that while both of them were the "brown sexy lady" archetype, both of them were very up front about when they found those pursuing them distasteful. Both of them reciprocated the affections of the men they were attracted to and were quick to enforce their boundaries when someone they weren't attracted to (Jafar and Frollo) made advances on them, and both were really good about standing up for themselves. And neither of them felt like the "spitfire" trope to me, both were pretty chill and liberated and mildly snarky, only getting venomous with those who treated them poorly.

So Hugo's novel inspires the creation of the spire. The spire leads to the roof collapsing. The book did destroy the edifice. I'm all for them fixing the roof, but rebuilding the spire seems unnecessary.

Yes, this movie would have been one of Disney’s best if it cut out the child humor, specifically the gargoyles. However, the gargoyles would still have been okay if the question about whether they are real or in Quasi’s head remained unanswered. Unfortunately, during the battle, there is no question that they are involved by “machine gunning” stones and dropping bricks and machinery onto the soldiers 😒

I can agree with a lot of the points about the changed pairing at the end but it still raised some problems for me. First of (just as a basis for the argument) of course getting the girl should never be a reward but pairing esmeralda with quasi modo doesn't have to mean that. The thing is, the movie builds up the potential for them to have a meaningful relationship (yes they still probably do as friends, but more on that later) with esmeralda being able to look past quasi modos looks. without having to implie any obligation whatsoever. all that happens in the context of the movie actively (and quite literally) bringing up the question "is love only for the beautiful" or at least the "not ugly". and so by ending up with a conventionally attractive couple at the end while quasi modo alone after esmeralda seemed to see something in him, the movie pretty much answers that question with "kinda yes, actually". So while i can appreciate a lot of what is conveyed in the movie as is, that kinda rubbed me the wrong way. Besides the fact, that we ended up with kind of the classic "princess" (in a very broad sense) and knight in shining armor couple again just kind of annoyed me. Also, just as a side node, phoebus and esmeralda didn't actually have that much interaction before they got together and their first kiss kind of happens in response to phoebus being wounded in a heroic rescue soo, esmeralde ends up as a bit of an reward anyway, i think. Only it's to phoebus, not to quasi modo.

While it's fine not to like the kind of show that is the French Canadian Le bossu de Notre Dame, people have to understand that we don't have the same size of public nor same type of budget American productions have. Over here, it's acclaimed and considered a true masterpiece that was played by some of our most famous singers and has been seen by over 8 million of people all over the world. I'm sure that for an American production that the numbers wouldn't seem impressive, but for us it is. That's why huge French Canadian productions end up moving away from Canada; there's not enough people to warrant the production budget of Le Cirque du Soleil and of singers like Céline Dion.

Well, I definitely don't agree in your oppinion about how the newest musical compares to the movie. I find it interesting to know your oppinion, tjough. Hell, I'd love to know how it compares for anyone! Frollo, for example, is much more (for me) scary, since he's much more realistic, I feel. Also Partick Page appears and he's awesome.

Tone problem is indeed the whole point. I remember writing a review of the film's trailer for a class test (long long ago) and this is actually the contradiction which occurred to me when watching the trailer (while knowing both the film and the plot of the book by Hugo, which, I shamefully admit, know from a movie). The trailer is all really cheery and makes the whole thing look like a happy adventure, while the film has some really really dark elements I'm not sure are even fit for a children's movie. Thank you for pointing this out.

The end of the disney movie would happen where: [ ] In real life [x] Only in the disney movie Remember the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre and the history of Petrus Gonsalvus that was never accepted socially. removed a poetic and tragic ending with the death of Quasimodo and Esmeraklda as Marie Alexandrine von Vetsera with Prince Rudolf for that silly ending that would never happen in rela life.

Maybe it’s because I’m Italian and the Notre-Dame de Paris’ composer, Riccardo Cocciante is Italian-French and very very popular here since the 70s, but I loved the musical. It was a lot in Cocciante’s style, musically, and it explored a lot the social injustice theme (the first song interpreted by Clopin and the gypsies it’s them asking for sanctuary) and the toxic relationship between Quasimodo and Frollo, that strarts with the hunchback treating him as a saviour to him realizing he’s been treated like a monster and a fool his whole life and ending up killing Frollo.

Something that gets under appreciated is the original French title: Notre Dame de Paris literally means "Our Lady of Paris." It obviously refers to the Virgin Mary (as basically all Our Lady's do) and to Esmeralda herself. But having read it, I think Hugo wanted to draw attention not to Esmeralda as an embodiment of the city but to the cathedral itself as *our* lady (or the lady of Parisians), *the* lady. The cathedral is the character that matters far more to him than any of the human (or goat) characters, and if he's angry and grieved at any injustice it's the injustice of such a great work of architecture and witness to history being defaced and left to rot. I prefer the 1939 and Disney versions because I think shrugging your shoulders to victimhood isn't helpful, and preservation is a problem that's been solved for Notre Dame while oppression hasn't. I prefer the 1939 refocus on how the plight of the Romani does matter in the face of IRL genocide. I prefer the Disney refocus on Frollo's abuse, his hatred and dehumanization of the person he lusts after, his dehumanization of Quasimodo, and how those things are enough in line with the rest of Paris that he can exist in a place of honor and power while Quasimodo and Esmeralda are outcasts. I don't think there are any film adaptations of "Notre Dame de Paris." They're adaptations of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," and honestly at this point they should be.

HOT TAKE! I don't mind the gargoyles in the Disney version, and their addition makes sense to Hugo's original vision. The Cathedral of Notre Dame changes colors, comes alive at times, and is as much a force (and for good), as any of the living characters. Gargoyles are supposed to rain water after a storm, but at one point in the Disney movie they rain lava! You could even view Frollo's death as the Cathedral passing judgement, casting him into a pit of fire. The gargoyle's original function was to scare away evil and protect those within too. Quasimodo has 3.

Your video made me think of something interesting. I don't think it's cannon but an interesting thought about the Disney adaptation. Quasimodo doesn't look like his Romani parents. He looks white. What if Disney took the plot point of Esmeralda being white and adapted it instead of getting rid of it? What if Quasimodo had been abandoned by his biological parents for being disfigured and then his two parents at the beginning of the film are actually the ones that found him and took him in? I don't think I'm right but it's an interesting theory. I've always found it weird that he didn't look much like his parents.

You guys give the gargoyles too much flak. Yes, they're the weakest part of the movie, but it was marketed as a family movie, something kids could watch. Without their humor the movie would be aggressively, suffocatingly depressing. Phoebus has his moments but he couldn't carry the movie. Not to mention the fact that at times you can't tell if they're real or hallucinations really highlights Quasi's loneliness, the possibility that he made up these three distinct characters that truely act like they're their own people, that argue with him and each other, that are sarcastic and annoying sometimes, that push him to do things bc they want what's good for him, all that because he was so desperately alone. The gargoyles are important fight me

Ok so in the flashback scene with Frollo and Quasimodo's parents we see that his parents are Romani. So who does a Romani couple have a son who is a ginger? My answer they adopted baby Quasi. His birth parents maybe they died or more likely abandoned little baby quasi and the couple heard baby Quasi crying found him and fell in love with the cute little sweetie and made him their son. When the begin of the the movie happened. I kinda wonder what would have happened if little baby Quasi was raised by his Romani parents. there is probably a Tumblr AU or some fanfic about this.

i read the book (in french) and tbh it's really good at establishing atmosphere and tension but hugo tends to go on massive tangents about details that interested him but do nothing for the narrative. he's not that good with characters he's not enamored by. the real main character is the cathedral and everything else is an accessory. and phebus is a grade a asshole. apart from those goddamn gargoyles i think the adaptation is pretty cool. but again i know the movie in french so it kinda hit different - try it sometimes. also victor hugo was a prominent political figure, it kinda shows in his work.
