Sad News Regarding the Live Action “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” Movie

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is one of the most gorgeous and beloved Disney movies of all time. The animated film has some of the best music in any franchise, and the songs are still popular 27 years after its release. Since Disney has dove headfirst into the world of live-action movie recreations, fans have been begging for The Hunchback of Notre Dame to get its own remake. That’s why fans went into a tizzy this weekend when a poster of the new live-action Hunchback went viral after being shared by star Josh Gad.
