Spoiler:
The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a 1996 animated feature produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released to theaters on June 21, 1996 by Walt Disney Pictures. The thirty-fourth animated feature in the Disney animated features canon, the film is based on the basic story of Victor Hugo's novel, but changes most of its substance. The plot centers on Esmeralda, a beautiful gypsy dancer; Judge Claude Frollo, a powerful and ruthless Minister of Justice who lusts after her; Quasimodo, the protagonist, Notre Dame's kindhearted but deformed bell-ringer, who adores her; and Phoebus, the chivalrous if irreverent military captain, who holds affections for her.
The film was directed by Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale, directors of Beauty and the Beast, and produced by Don Hahn, producer of Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King. The songs for the musical film were composed by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, and the film featured the voices of Tom Hulce, Demi Moore, Kevin Kline, Paul Kandel, Jason Alexander, Charles Kimbrough, David Ogden Stiers, Tony Jay, and Mary Wickes (in her final film role). It belongs to the era known as Disney Renaissance, which refers to the ten-year era between 1989 and 1999 when the Walt Disney Animation Studios returned to making successful animated films, recreating a public and critical interest in the Disney studios. A direct-to-video sequel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame II, was released in 2002. This animated film received a G rating by the Motion Picture Association of America, and was rated U by the British Board of Film Classification in the UK. Despite these ratings, the film is considered to be one of Disney's darkest pictures.

Plot

In 1482 Paris, Quasimodo, a disfigured man, lives only to ring the bells of the cathedral of Notre Dame. Alone except for three animate gargoyles (Victor, Hugo, and Laverne), Quasimodo is forbidden from ever leaving the bell-tower by his life-long guardian, Judge Claude Frollo, the Minister of Justice. Frollo, a highly religious man who detests "impure" commoners, had adopted the infant Quasimodo as a repentance for killing his mother, a gypsy he falsely accused of theft, but told Quasimodo that his mother abandoned him at birth.
With Paris's annual Festival of Fools underway, the gargoyles encourage Quasimodo to leave the bell-tower in order to attend. Meanwhile, Frollo appoints a new Captain of the Guard, Phoebus, and the two go to oversee the festivities. Quasimodo is eventually revealed, and the crowd crowns him King of Fools for having the ugliest face in all Paris. Soon afterwards, however, Frollo's guards (but who are more like thugs) incite a riot and Quasimodo is tortured. The gypsy dancer Esmeralda, who had just finished a performance, reappears to help Quasimodo, even though Frollo forbids it. Because of her defiance, Frollo orders Esmeralda arrested, but she manages to escape his thugs, and is marked as a fugitive.
Esmeralda seeks refuge in Notre Dame, where she is confronted by Phoebus. She initially acts hostile towards him, but Phoebus reveals he is unlike the other thugs, and the two begin developing a romance. When Frollo arrives unexpectedly, Phoebus claims sanctuary for Esmeralda in an attempt to save her. However, Frollo surrounds the cathedral with his thugs, effectively trapping Esmeralda inside. Here, she meets with Quasimodo again. The two form a friendship, and he helps her escape. Quasimodo discovers he has fallen in love with Esmeralda, and holds out hope that she will also love him despite his ugliness. Frollo, on the other hand, has developed an insatiable lust for Esmeralda, and is convinced it is the work of black magic. He fears eternal damnation because of his feelings, and when he is alerted of Esmeralda's escape, he vows to find her and make her love him or otherwise have her executed.
Frollo, in his obsessive search, begins burning down all of Paris, and nearly executes Phoebus for insubordination. Phoebus escapes on horseback, but the thugs shoot him with arrows and he jumps into a river in order to escape. He is saved by an onlooking Esmeralda, who takes him back to the cathedral. There, the two admit their feelings for each other and share a kiss, and Quasimodo, having just been convinced by the gargoyles that Esmeralda truly does love him, is distraught. Frollo arrives unexpectedly; Esmeralda makes a quick escape and Phoebus is hidden. Frollo reveals to Quasimodo that he knows the location of the gypsy hideout, the Court of Miracles, and announces a plan of attack. Phoebus and Quasimodo journey to the hideaway (using a map hidden in a charm Esmeralda had given Quasimodo before), and are nearly hanged by Clopin, the king of the gypsies, who had mistaken them for spies. Esmeralda stops the operation and Phoebus warns of the impending attack. Almost instantly, however, Frollo and his thugs arrive and arrest everyone: he was bluffing, and had followed Quasimodo to the Court of Miracles.
The next day, Frollo prepares to burn Esmeralda at the stake in front of a rioting crowd. Quasimodo, chained to the bell-tower, has given up all hope. Frollo offers Esmeralda her freedom in exchange for her love, but she refuses, and the execution commences. Seeing this, Quasimodo becomes enraged at Frollo's hypocrisy and breaks free. He swings down and retrieves Esmeralda, taking her back to the cathedral and angrily declaring sanctuary for her. Frollo, however, breaks into the cathedral just as his prisoners begin to break free and revolt with the citizenry. Upstairs, he finds Quasimodo crying over Esmeralda, who is apparently dead. Frollo attempts to stab Quasimodo, but he retaliates and overpowers him. Just as Quasimodo prepares to kill Frollo, Esmeralda awakes and Quasimodo runs off with her onto the cathedral's balconies, with Frollo pursuing, sword in hand. As Quasimodo and Frollo fight, Frollo finally reveals to Quasimodo that he had killed his mother, and in one last attempt to kill them, both he and Quasimodo fall from the tower. While Frollo falls to his death, Quasimodo is caught in mid-air by Phoebus and the three reunite.
Later, Quasimodo comes to accept that Esmeralda and Phoebus love each other. With Esmeralda's help, he reluctantly emerges from the cathedral, and is finally accepted into society.
