movie: hunchback of notre dame




That awkward, uncomfortable moment, when you rewatch Disney movies from your childhood… and begin to see how Disney can discreetly put… adult content in a story, and still have it G-rated.

Because as being older and watching this movie, this villain Frollo is way more creepy now, than in my younger age.

I mean, freaking Hellfire makes me almost… cringe in disgust. 

The adults watching this movie can see the sick, scabby and dangerous sexual obsession Frollo has for Esmeralda, while kids surely don’t.

Well done, Disney, well done.

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.

Bells of Notre Dame
By Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz. Voices of Carlo Ragoni, Eros Pagni, Franco Chillemi
Bells of Notre Dame

Bells of Notre-Dame (Italian)

Score by Alan Menken
Italian voices: Carlo Ragone (Clopin), Eros Pagni (Frollo), Franco Chillemi (Archdeacon)

It always strikes me how good Clopin’s voice (theater actor Carlo Ragone) is in the Italian rendition. As much as I like the original version (and a few in other languages), I don’t think any Clopin can equal the Italian one, whose final high D in this intro is arguably the most powerful and clear of all.

“Beside Esmeralda, this despicable movie sequel will also burn in an ETERNAL HELLFIRE.”

Continues to nonchalantly ignore that Disney fucked it up, by making a movie “sequel”. HAHAHAHA NOPE. That sequel will never be canon to me.

And it’s a downright insult, to the most hardcore Disney villain Claude Frollo himself. Because HE is pure evil. Not this little shit. The “sequel” is pure SHIT.


So I tried making an Elsanna variant of Frollo's Hellfire, and this is what came out.

Goddess Skaldi,
You know I am a righteous girl.
Of my virtue I am justly proud. (Og til deg)

Goddess Skaldi,
You know I’m so much purer than,
The common, vulgar, weak, licentious crowd. (Jeg har syndet)

Then tell me, Skaldi,
Why I see her dancing there?
Why her icy eyes bore into my soul? (Tanke)

I feel her, I see her.
The sun caught in her blonde hair,
The storm raging in me out of all control. (Ved ord og gjerning)

This blizzard! Dark blizzard!
This ice inside my heart!
This raging desire!
Is turning me to sin!

It’s not my fault! (min feil) I’m not to blame! (min feil)
It was the snow queen’s fault, the witch who froze my heart! (Jeg har feilet)
It’s not my fault, (min feil) if the gods’ plans. (min feil)
They made the devils so much stronger than a girl! (Jeg har feilet)

Protect me, Skaldi,
Don’t let the snow queen cast her spell!
Don’t let her ice freeze my flesh and bone!
Destroy Queen Elsa!
And let her suffer in Niflheim!
Or else let her be mine and mine alone!

*knocking* Princess Anna, the snow queen has escaped.
She’s nowhere in the dungeon. She’s gone.
But how, I- never mind. Get out, you idiot. I’ll find her, I’ll find her if I have to burn down Arendelle.

The blizzard! Dark blizzard!
Now Elsa, it’s your turn.
Choose me or, Hans’s sword.
Be mine or you will die! (Herren forbarme)

Gods have mercy on her. (Herren forbarme)
Gods have mercy on me. (Herren forbarme)
But she will be mine,
Or she will die!
