Episode 22: The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Part 1)
Listen now
SANCTUARY! In this episode, we gaze upon the 1996 gem adapted from Victor Hugo's classic Gothic novel. In a first for Cracking the Vault, we split this topic into two episodes as we talk for nearly two hours about the first HALF of the film. We dive into the casting of this gem, the liberties taken with the Hugo classic to adapt it to the screen, and the pure evil that Disney presented in villain Claude Frollo.  During our Tangled episode, we debated who was the most evil Disney villain between Mother Gothel and Frollo...do both sides stand by their positions? Take a listen as we dive into this dark, powerful animated classic!
