The Hunchback of Notre Dame II (2002)
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Family Film, Children, Disney
Oh dear. This sequel does not live up to its original at all. The theme is to get Quasimodo a girlfriend and get him one they do. And that is about it for the narrative. It was so disappointing. The characters’ drawings were off, some of the characters’ colours weren’t right and you notice it a lot more when watching the first one only a few days ago 😛 . They had taken away some attributes of characters like Esmeralda who had lost her spunk or something like that. The only thing that was good about this film was Madellaine, she was nicely crafted and was likable. But she was the only thing they focused on. Their “love” was so sudden (Even for Disney) that it felt like I had missed a scene. They created a weak plot, songs were cheesy (not epic like the first) and the film felt like a television spin off aimed at just children. Such a real shame and if you are a fan of the original do not watch this film!! Enjoy 😛 !
I give this film 1 Star out of 5!
