Tab Murphy (screenwriter for Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame) posted on FB the “first treatment” that he had written of the movie. There are thirteen pages in all, but already the first three are a riot. I just highlighted parts that made me roll:
Look at it you all, Murphy was already writing the villain’s origin story before Diz Inc. got in the act and did it for other villains.
BORIS AND BELA.
THEY REALLY WERE SHAPING PHOEBUS AFTER GRINGOIRE.
HIS POEMS ARE SO BAD THAT EVEN HIS HORSE CRINGES.
Edit: Putting the rest of the pages behind “read more”, since people asked about them!
And of course, because I'm a corvid fan, it had to be; Disney Hond characters as various members of the crow family:
Esmeralda---> as a blue jay
Clopin ---> as a Eurasian magpie
Quasimodo ---> An Albino crow with a slightly deformed and overgrown beak (it's not that clear in the picture, but he is drawn with crossed beak tips.)
Frollo ---> a raven
