Recently, the Disney studio is ready to turn almost every famous cartoon into a feature film with a stellar cast. The Hollywood Reporter managed to find out that this time the House of Mouse sent in the development of a remake of the animated film The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Based on the historical novel by Victor Hugo, the musical will be screened by playwright and Tony Award winner David Henry Hwang.|
Alan Menken ("Aladdin", "The Little Mermaid") and Stephen Schwartz ("Geppetto"), winners of the Oscar for the soundtrack to the original cartoon, will write the music for the project. The film is produced by Josh Gad, who starred in the hit game remake of "Beauty and the Beast", which brought the studio over $ 1 billion.
While the project will follow a proven formula for success - converting animated hits into feature films - The Hunchback is not currently a priority for the studio. Disney is currently gearing up to release The Lion King, Aladdin and Dumbo, followed by Mulan alongside Lady and the Tramp. The latest tape will be released immediately on the Disney + streaming platform.
