Ok I’m sorry but I’m going to rant because this picture has pissed me off beyond belief. Growing up watching this movie, the main thing I took from it is that you don’t NEED to get the girl to he happy with life. Quasimodo shouldn’t have been with Esmerelda because 1. He wasn’t ready to love himself and 2. They were completely incompatible, she needed someone like Phoebus who would challenge her and her strong personality. Quasimodo didn’t get the girl because learning to love yourself is MUCH more important and whoever made this picture obviously learned nothing from one of Disney’s most relatable and powerful movies.
Sean Astin as Quasimodo Ben Barnes as Clopin Trouillefou Chris Hemsworth as Phoebus de Chateaupers Oona Chaplin as Esmeralda Holliday Grainger as Fleur-de-Lys de Gondelaurier Alan Rickman as Claude Frollo George Blagden as Pierre Gringoire
How is it Frollo never comes up in the “worst Disney villain” argument? I mean yeah you can say it’s because they didn’t come up with him, but let’s be real, Disney just steals other peoples’ shit for everything, even when they change the names, so. Frollo wanted to rape Esmerelda in a church and then tried to burn a benevolent family alive in their own home for helping the girl who rejected him, all in the midst of burning the city of Paris to the ground out of sexual frustration. And this is just one argument, not to mention the fact that he used his power as a religious figure to commit genocide. And mentally tortured a boy whose mother he murdered as part of that genocide. Come on, now. Where’s the argument against this.
so i got to introduce one of my best friends to one of my favorite movies and my top favorite nostalgic film, Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame - and even though i can probably quote the majority of this movie and know an almost embarrassing amount of trivia, I still notice something new every time I watch.
tonight i noticed this in “Hellfire” - right where the song starts to intensify where he first says “It’s not my fault”
the light in the shape of a coffin.
THIS. MOVIE. Filed under things I will always appreciate.
