If someone ever says their should be a Hunchback of Notre Dame character in EAH I will fucking stab a bitch
Remember, just because it’s a Disney movie, doesn’t mean it’s a fairy tale. :)

Me too!!! It really bothers me! One of my classmates asked me, if a daughter of Anna and Kristoff (from Frozen) will come?!? Excuse me?!?
Umm the Hunchback of Notre Dane was a story LONG before the Disney movie came out.
Let me explain the full problem:
I keep seeing people saying that so and so’s child should be in EAH, generally someone from a Disney movie. And I saw one saying Mulan should be in it and I just head desked as Mulan was based on the legend of Hua Mulan which may have been based on a real person, not a fairy tale despite being a Disney movie
So the next thought in my head was ‘if someone saw Disney Hunchback and thought ‘wouldn’t it be cool if they had a daughter of Esmeralda’ that would be the worst thing ever and a gross misunderstanding of the fact that Disney films are not the origin of most of their stories Hunchback being the worst example, because they’d have to use the public domain version and oh boy if Duchess thought she had an unhappy end…’
And then I made a post. Because I didn’t sleep last night and when I lack sleep I apparently get the idea that every silly or angry thought that comes into my head needs to be seen. I get lonely and need social contact and posting crap is how I get it.
Its a valid frustration and what kills many of their movies for me, the extreme downside of Disney is for all the talent, money, technology and resources, is when they’re creating a movie based off another source they feel the need to “improve on it”. By the time they’re done adding all the stylizing, humor, plot twists and political correctness to it there is very little resemblance to the original aside character names and location.
Normally I’m able to separate pieces and enjoy them but it is frustrating that when Disney makes a movie based off a book that there isn’t really much in the way of steering watchers towards the original source material. That I can remember there weren’t “Disney editions” of the ‘Hunchback of Notre Dame’ being put out in Disney stores, for example, nor for Alice in Wonderland, Beauty and The Beast, or Peter Pan. There were rewrites using the Disney versions but nothing with the original versions, because it could cause “confusion”.
This is also why Tolkien made it clear that he was open to motion picture deals for his books but not if the company producing it was Disney.
