Trivia

This film boasts an unusually star-filled cast for a low-budget direct-to-video cartoon. In fact, all of the characters who reprise in this sequel are played by the same actors, except Laverne: Mary Wickes passed away in 1995 shortly before completing her work in the original. Jane Withers, who finished Wickes' work on that film (uncredited), voices the character in this one. See more »

Goofs

During the "Le Jour D'Amour" sequence, we see one participant's dress change color from blue to beige then blue then beige, and it stays that way the rest of the movie. See more »

Worth sitting through only due to surprisingly good Jennifer Love Hewitt as Madellaine
23 June 2006 | by Articulated_JawSee all my reviews

Leave it to Disney to remind us how stupendously well-animated their theatrical films have been by creating sub-par direct-to-video silliness such as this. The difference in animation quality, color (and color consistency), depth, backgrounds...everything is far too obviously dumbed down to low budget and possibly low talent levels.

Characterization and tone of story have also taken their own serious hits, and largely being inconsistent with the 1996 feature film. Phoebus has been turned into a goof-ball buffoon as opposed to the smart-aleck but intelligent and competent soldier he was. And Esmeralda has lost her spark both in character and visually, morphing in scenes through various shades of ash (and often too dark).

There is one relative high-point with Jennifer Love Hewitt as Madellaine. She sounded honestly excited to be doing the part, and the character itself had an every-girl cuteness to her.

Overall, worthy only of a cheap rent (not Blockbuster, more like $2 at the local supermarket) for fans of the 1996 classic who must satiate their curiosity and see how this new character Madellaine works out.

Then forget it and return to the true majesty of The Hunchback of Notre Dame I.
