Return to the magnificence of Notre Dame in Disney's all-new movie, THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME II, a fun, romantic adventure told with vibrant animation and music as soaring as its setting. Still the faithful protector of Notre Dame's beloved bells, Quasimodo now rings them with the help of Esmeralda and Phoebus's little boy, Zephyr, who is Quasi's best friend. Stopping with Zephyr at a traveling circus owned by the evil magician Sarousch, Quasi is captivated by Sarousch's lovely assistant, Madellaine. But greedy Sarousch is plotting to steal the Cathedral's most famous bell -- with Madellaine's unwilling help. Encouraged by some laughably misguided advice from his gargoyle pals, Quasi listens to his own heart -- and discovers that he, too, must look past appearances to find true love. It's "smart, funny, and packed with lessons about humanity for the whole family," raves Jim Brosseau of "Ladies' Home Journal." All of the original voice talent reprise their roles, including Demi Moore as Esmeralda, Tom Hulce as Quasimodo, and Kevin Kline as Phoebus. Jennifer Love Hewitt stars as Madellaine and Haley Joel Osment brings Zephyr to life in this magical, musical celebration of the beauty inside everyone.
Most of the original characters from Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame--plus a few new ones--return for this animated sequel. Esmeralda (Demi Moore) and Phoebus (Kevin Kline) now have a son named Zephyr (Haley Joel Osment), with whom Quasi (Tom Hulce) has become friends. When the circus comes to town, the hunchback becomes enchanted by a magician's assistant, Madellaine (Jennifer Love Hewitt), but the her boss, the vain Sarousch (Michael McKean), is also a thief with an eye for the cathedral's jeweled bell. He forces Madellaine to woo Quasi while he carries out the theft. Will he get away with it? Will Madellaine learn to see the inner Quasi? And will he be able to trust again when he learns of her deception? Songs and humorous high jinks from the gargoyles, including Jason Alexander's Hugo, illustrate the lesson that--as in the first feature--you can't judge a book by its cover. This sequel is squarely aimed at a younger audience than the original was; children from 5 to 10 should be very entertained. --Kathleen C. Fennessy --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

This is supposed to be a movie, so why does the animation resemble those found in TV shows? Sure, it's brighter, but the graphics found in theater films are far superior to this sequal's (clone's) effortless animation. The scenery found in the original "Hunchback" was more beautiful and lush. The characters lack fresh life, that little boy, Zephyr, is just too kiddie, and the actors and actresses are plain unrealistic. The score was okay and songs weren't as heart-warming as the original. For you to be moved, listen to the original's songs combined with choirs and beautiful voices.
The original is way superior to this clone. This was probably made to please over protective parents who were horrified by who dark the original was, not to continue the adventures of Quazimodo. "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" was inspiring, heartwarming, and will drive you to both tears and joy. You will be touched by its power and glory, and your soul will fly like an eagel. But as for this clone, it did a mediocre job. The main problem with this film is that is released on DVD and video, not in theaters, which tells us that Disney today cares for money, not our entertainment. At least, this could've been a TV miniseries. Overall, this is Notre Damned.
The 'extras' on this video really aren't. Poor filler to make you think you are getting a bit more than just the movie. If you really must watch it, or have it to entertain your children, consider renting it from the video store or Netflix.. You'll be glad you saved your money.
I truely wish there was an option for 0 stars. That is what it deserves.
Animation: Yuck is right! It looks like your average Saturday morning cartoon! Far from the great graphics and splashes of darkness and light the origional had to offer. The characters moved in a choppy form, and the black lines around them were far too thick. In some scense (ie: in the staircase) the background was computerized however the character didn't blend in enough so it looked totally wrong. It was also apparant that they tried to use watercolor backgrounds when Quasimodo was singing his little number, but it didn't look truely real enough to get an overall effect. When the sun was setting, they tried to get a shadowy color on the faces however they looked almost too dark and pink. Esmeralda's skin kept changing color between frames (along with Hugo who was pink for a while). When they spoke, the lip movements didn't always match the words.
Plot: Not what I would call creative! There was the Festival of Fools in the origional, couldn't they think of something different? And they kept hammering the message of appearances over and over to the point in which it got to be annoying. Perhaps some person who worked for Disney wasn't happy that Quasimodo never got the girl. Oh well that's life.Read more ›
