Inspired by Victor Hugo's classic novel, Disney brings the heroic adventures of Quasimodo, the gentle and lonely bell ringer of Notre Dame, to spectacular life. This critically acclaimed Disney masterpiece is an "uplifting, thrilling story with a heart-touching message that emerges from the comedy and song" (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times). At the urging of his hilarious gargoyle pals Victor, Hugo, and Laverne, Quasimodo leaves the solitary safety of his tower, venturing out to find his first true friend, the gypsy beauty Esmerelda. The most unlikely of heroes, Quasi fights to save the people and the city he loves and, in turn, helps us to see people for who they are, rather than how they appear. The star-studded voice cast includes Jason Alexander, Tom Hulce, Kevin Kline, and Demi Moore in a magnificent Disney musical from renowned composer Alan Menken.
Chef-d'œuvre salué par la critique, le 34e long métrage d'animation de Disney ? un ajout sensationnel à la vidéothèque Disney de votre famille ? est une «histoire réjouissante et captivante dont le message, porté par l'humour et les chansons, va droit au cœur» (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times)! Avec cette adaptation spectaculaire du roman classique de Victor Hugo, Disney donne vie aux aventures héroïques de Quasimodo, le gentil sonneur de Notre-Dame qui souffre de solitude. Encouragé par ses copains les gargouilles Victor, Hugo et Laverne, Quasimodo défie Frollo, son gardien diabolique, et quitte sa tour pour participer à la joyeuse fête des fous sur la place. Mais la foule cruelle le rejette à cause de son apparence repoussante. Une autre exclue, la bohémienne Esmeralda, vient le sauver et Quasimodo se retrouve à se battre pour le peuple et la ville qu'il aime tant ? tout en nous rappelant de voir les gens pour ce qu'ils sont plutôt que pour leur apparence. «La musique d'Alan Menken est emballante et les paroles de Stephen Schwartz sont souvent drôles et toujours inspirantes... Les héros, les méchants, la comédie, le suspense, la musique sont un charme à écouter et une merveille à regarder. Les enfants vont l'adorer. «Le Bossu de Notre-Dame» est une œuvre maîtresse. C'est un véritable carillon de bonheur.» ? Gene Shalit, THE TODAY SHOW

The Hunchback of Notre Dame I (blu ray):
‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame I’ arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.78:1 encode. Colours are warm and vibrant, with bold primaries, rich purples and golds, and deep blacks. Detail is excellent too. The animators' line art is crisp and clean on the whole, the brushstrokes and textures of the hand-painted backgrounds are wonderfully resolved, and the CG elements fare well, even under high definition scrutiny. (4/5)
The Hunchback of Notre Dame II (blu ray):
Like the utterly ugly sequel to 'Pocahontas,' this Direct-To-Video (MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.66:1) sucks all the life and charm out of the original animation, instead producing a movie that befits the starkly flat animation of a 'Duck Tales' episode. It's a very sad movie to look at, let alone watch. (1.5/5)
The Hunchback of Notre Dame I:
Disney has provided a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track for 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame.' The audio mix does a good job at showcasing the movie's musical numbers and also provides ample room for all sorts of ambient sound. The movie's score, however unmemorable, resonates through the channels with stunning clarity. The streets of Paris are alive with the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The clanging of the church bells fills each channel with beautiful echoing. One of the best examples of the encompassing effect of this mix's ability to produce believable ambient sound is during the Festival of Fools when Quasimodo gets mocked. People yell from every direction and voices ping-pong around the soundfield like you were actually standing there. (4/5)
The Hunchback of Notre Dame II:
The sequel's audio mix doesn't turn out as well though.Read more ›
The musical score is among the better of the Disney animated movies, the animation is top notch and I'd rate this just below Beauty and the Beast in overall quality with a similar feeling storyline. It's just not for the little kiddies.
As for the second movie, consider it a bonus or an extra. Nothing more! Back in the late 90's, early 2000's Disney was making sequels to all their animated flicks, Mulan, Tarzan, Aladdin, etc., etc. Trying to milk the cow, so to speak. These were NOT theatrical grade movies, but straight to home releases of varying quality, none of them great and some downright awful. The only good thing about this sequel being that it can be shown to kiddies as that appears to be what it's aimed at! Adults can safely ignore it! And probably should!
Overall, I'd rate The Hunchback of Notre Dame a solid four stars. It's a good quality Disney movie especially if you like them a little more mature than the usual Disney fare. As for the sequel, I'll be generous and rate it a two.
It was also delivered quickly and in perfect condition.
This movie lives up to all of the other Disney cartoons. Great animation with a great story and beautiful music.
