It is time to see the Hunchback of Notre Dame come to life once again! We are excited to share that a live-action musical adaptation is on its way!
David Henry Hwang has been set by Disney to write Hunchback, while Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz will write the music. Three-time Oscar winner Schwartz’s credits include Wicked, Godspell and Pippin. Eight-time Oscar winner Menken’s credits include Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and the original score for the 1996 Disney animated film The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Producing this adaptation will be Mandeville alongside Josh Gad.
This will be a wonderful addition to the lineup of live-action films set to hit theaters from Disney! Premiering this year are Dumbo, Aladdin, and The Lion King, with Mulan, Pinocchio, and The Little Mermaid also in the works. We definitely can’t wait to see how these films bring back the memories of the originals while creating the story in their own magical way.
