In 1996, Disney brought the famous Victor Hugo novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame to the big screen in a great animated feature film.
Here are 12 things you didn't know about the movie that will make you love it even more!
1. PG Rating
The Hunchback of Notre Dame was the first animated Disney movie to almost receive a PG rating since 1985's The Black Cauldron. Since the movie was dark and had sexual themes it was considered for the rating, but it managed to obtain the G rating, typical of Disney movies.
2. Did you see them?
This fact will make you want to rewatch the movie to find them all. While Quasimodo is singing "Out There", the camera pans over Paris and zooms in on the street. If you look closely you can see Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Pumbaa from The Lion King, and a man shaking out the carpet from Aladdin.
3. Watch your language
It was the last Disney movie to use "hell", "damn" and other mild bad language
4. Where are your shoes?
Esmeralda was barefoot for the entire movie.
5. Quasimodo was almost killed off
Quasimodo, as he dies in the original book, was almost killed off in the movie as well but movie makers opted for a different ending for the animated film.
6. Disney's Darkest Song
"Hellfire" was one of Disney's darkest songs ever written, and it was nearly cut from the movie.
