This troper originally saw The Hunchback of Notre Dame when she was little, and remembered it as a darker Disney movie. However, after my bell choir played "The Bells of Notre Dame" in one of our concerts, I decided to watch the movie again, through a teenager's perspective. First I will add that The Bells of Notre Dame is an AMAZING piece of music, especially when played on actual bells. It's pretty, yet haunting and just perfect. The movie was much
more sexual than I remembered, obviously since the first time I watched it I was four, and now I'm fifteen. Also, now I see why the Nostalgia Critic
placed "Hellfire" as number one on his list of top villain songs. While I won't say it's my
favorite villain song, DAMN. That scene is amazing, complete with actual Latin. Not just your typical Ominous Latin Chanting
, but the real kind. (Being in a choir, I've sung my way through enough Latin pieces to be very
familiar. And I'm not even Christian) I will point out of course that, being part of the Disney Animated Canon
, it does suffer many of the corny aspects and childish moments that are expected, however it is still much darker and more sexual than many other Disney movies. All in all, an amazing Disney movie with great music.
