Again and again, Disney has bombarded unsuspecting viewers with sequals (an unwise choice), which often lack the wonder and majesty of the originals. This one, the sequal to the original "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", is like the other sequals, failing to capture the spirit of the original. Characters are reintroduced, and a parade of new characers come. And what's new, there's romance in this sequal, the love between Quazimodo, the lovable bellringer of Notre Dame, and Madelline (Jennifer Love Hewitt), the lonely servent of a greedy master. Like many of Disney's sequals, this one lacks what the originals had.
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.
