Information From Stay Tooned:

"This Fall 2001, Disney will release the sequel to "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," featuring the same all-star voice cast and the humble bellringer, Quasimodo. Back in 1996, Disney released the original, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and made a cool $185 million worldwide with $50 million rental profits. So no wonder they'd want to make a sequel. Tom Hulce will again be voicing Quasimodo, plus Demi Moore as Esmeralda the Gypsy and Kevin Kline as Phoebus, the Captain of the Guard. Jennifer Love Hewitt is the new voice star as the circus performer Madellaine who falls in love with Quasimodo. Want to know the story? Here's a nice detailed synopsis for you courtesy of Yahoo: In "The Hunchback of Notre Dame II," the people of Paris excitedly anticipate the traditional Jour D'Amour festival -- a celebration of love centered on a beautiful, legendary bell known as La Fidele. When this jeweled bell is rung, couples step forth to shout their true love's name. But whose name will Quasi proclaim? The festival is officially underway with the arrival of Cirque du Sarousch, a traveling circus. But Sarousch -- the vain magician who leads the carnival -- intends to get rich by making off with La Fidele. To distract Quasimodo, Sarousch sends in his beautiful assistant, Madellaine, to win the bell ringer's heart. Although Madellaine comes to care for Quasimodo and wants no part of stealing the bell, Sarousch uses her and takes the bell. To return the stolen bell, Quasimodo must learn to trust Madellaine, and in doing so, Quasimodo discovers true love."
