Disney is teaming back up with Snow White and the Huntsman writer Evan Daugherty to developed an event series for ABC based on Victor Hugo's classic novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The series will be called Esmeralda, and it is described as a period drama and reimagining of the classic story, told through the eyes of the beautiful Esmeralda.
This will be the second time that Disney has worked with this story. Back in 1996 Disney created a great, dark animated feature that ended up becoming one of my favorite Disney films. They really did a great job with that one, and the artwork done for it was pretty amazing. There were some pretty awesome sequences in it.
I'm curious to see how this event series turns out, but there's a good chance it could be really good. There's a lot of potential, and ABC makes sure they have solid production value in the things that they do.
