Hi guys, since I had compare the Phantom of the Opera with Beauty and the Beast earlier on. Here is my comparison on other Disney classic, the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Are you ready?
The Phantom of the Opera
Okay, as you know that that both stories are also set in France. It deals with 2 physically deformed title characters, however unlike Quasimodo, the Phantom (Erik in the original novel) is actually a madman and his obsessive love for Christine who seeks refuge at the Opera House in Paris.
Speaking of poor Erik, he was a combo of Frollo and Quasimodo until the end when Erik felt remorse. Despite that his love for Christine Daae!
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The story is the centre a love square between Esmeralda, Quasimodo, Pheobus and Frollo. So, you will definitely be surprise by this after seeing and read both stories!
As mentioned previously, Frollo reminds me a lot of Erik due to their lust and being labelled as a madman. The latter did have some sympathies because he lacks love because of his deformity, like Quasimodo due to the fact that they are hermits.
Esmeralda and Christine Daae are known for their kind-heart souls, only the latter was pressured to arrest the man to whom she considered as her teacher and angel of music.
So here are my thoughts on both stories, if you disagree, what do you think?
I gave you my music, make your song take wings!
