: So much so.

: The Hunchback of Notre Dame
? Are we just listing every movie ever set in Paris? The Paris in Hunchback
is historical, so no berets or Eiffel Tower here. There is

: I've read some of the Anatole
books. While I can easily see how they are an influence on Ratatouille
, there's also much content unique to both stories that is not shared. It's like when someone tells me Toy Story
is just a rip-off of the Raggedy Ann
film. Both concern animate toys buddying up on a journey, but there are as many differences as there are similarities. Just sayin'
