The Disney remake is said to be drawing from the original film as well as the 1831 Victor Hugo novel.

On a slightly less exciting note, the live-action of Hunchback is not said to be a priority for the studio who are currently working on Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King.

Nonetheless, fans of the original Disney film have shared their excitement online for the new release.

One person shared: “My wish has been answered!” while another added: “Finally! It’s getting the attention it deserves!”
