Josh Gad Shares Details on Live-Action Hunchback of Notre Dame


Frozen and The Beauty and The Beast star Josh Gad provides fans an update on the live-action version of Hunchback of Notre Dame

A poster promoting a live-action version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame has been circulating the internet recently. The poster places Josh Gad in the role of the Hunchback and notes a release date of 2025. The only issue? The poster is fan-created.

Gad recently responded to the Hunchbak poster on his Instagram page, stating “for the record, this is not real. This is a Fancast!” There is still a possibility that the movie will be created at some point since there is evidently a completed script. In the same Instagram post, Gad referred to the script as “one of the best I have read” and hopes that “the powers that be will see this love and let us make the live-action adaptation the original animated film deserves.”

No official word thus far from Disney on if a live-action Hunchback of Notre Dame movie is in the works. Considering the live-action version of The Little Mermaid is releasing soon, and both Hercules and Lilo and Stitch have remakes in the works, one can only assume the production of a live-action Hunchback of Notre Dame is not really a matter of if, but when.
