The last time The Hunchback of Notre Dame was released on DVD was on March 19, 2002, as announced in November 2001. Originally, it was going to be the last Gold Classic Collection title on December 5, 2000, as planned in early 2000, but because Disney wanted to release the film on DVD concurrently with the direct-to-video sequel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame II, they decided not to release it until after that sequel film was completed.


Inspired by Victor Hugo's classic novel, Disney brings the heroic adventures of Quasimodo, the gentle and lonely bell ringer of Notre Dame, to spectacular life. This critically acclaimed Disney masterpiece is an "uplifting, thrilling story with a heart-touching message that emerges from the comedy and song" (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times).

At the urging of his hilarious gargoyle pals, Victor, Hugo and Laverne, Quasimodo leaves the solitary safety of his tower, venturing out to find his first true friend, the gypsy beauty Esmeralda. The most unlikely of heroes, Quasi fights to save the people and the city he loves and, in turn, helps us to see people for who they are, rather than how they appear.

The star-studded voice cast includes Jason Alexander, Tom Hulce, Kevin Kline, and Demi Moore in a magnificent Disney musical from renowned composer Alan Menken.
