A collection of animation art from Disney's new film adaptation of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" reproduces conceptual material, sketches, layout drawings, and storyboards

Blackwell North Amer
In Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the artists of Walt Disney Feature Animation - inspired by Victor Hugo's literary masterpiece Notre-Dame de Paris - bring to life the Visual and theatrical themes of light played against dark, heaven cast against hell, good opposing evil, inner beauty outshining emotional ugliness. The stunning art and evocative text of The Art of The Hunchback of Notre Dame take the reader on a fascinating journey through the making of the movie, the world of medieval France, the nineteenth-century Gothic literature that embraced that world, and the imaginations of the creative artists who have masterfully combined these challenging elements into a magnificent animated musical.
The Art of The Hunchback of Notre Dame features the rarely seen spectrum of art created in the making of the film, as the story is imagined and re-imagined in a variety of media - from conceptual paintings, to story sketches and layout drawings, through the many stages of animation and background painting, computer generated imagery, effects animation, and final art from the production. The range of artwork is both vital and luminous, capturing the beauty and splendor of this stunning realization of fifteenth-century Paris. The lively, informative text features background on the original Hugo novel, as well as the historical influences, inspirations, and ideas the creators of the film brought to the animation, story, and music.
