It came as a huge surprise how the original story were worn out, really, I couldn't even dislike it 'cause of 'wow I could never imagine that someone might make THE story into THIS' in my head over and over again. I'm not talking negative here, still not yet, but only of my huuuge wonder. As a Disney movie it is 'why not', as an adaptation of the book I would never call it.
And then I saw someone asking "Eh?? It's a book?? What's the name, who's the author??"..
P.S.: Esmeralda is one hell of a pole dancer here.
