Trivia

Mandy Patinkin was originally cast as Quasimodo in the Disney version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996), but dropped out due to clashes with the producer regarding the character. He was cast as Quasimodo in this film, and Tom Hulce was cast to voice Quasimodo in Patinkin's place, in the Disney version. See more »

When Quasimodo returns to the Cathedral after his public punishment there is no sign of it on his skin, though it was prominent in the scenes with Esmeralda. See more »
