The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The Hunchback of Notre Dame mistake picture

Trivia: When Quasimodo is singing a few minutes into the film, he is standing above the town street where people are walking around, doing business. If you look closely to the lower right of the scene, you can see Belle from "Beauty and the Beast" reading a book in her blue dress, walking.

Trivia: Where you can see Belle from Beauty and the Beast, you can also see Pumbaa from the Lion King being carried on one of those stick things they use for dead animals.

Trivia: When Quasimodo is singing "Out There" the camera moves down and you can see a street merchant shaking out the flying carpet from Aladdin and there is a rooftop satellite dish.

Trivia: There are several 'Hidden Mickeys' in the railings at the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Trivia: When the soldiers fall after Quasimodo pulls the rope they were holding, a "Goofy Holler" can be heard.

Factual error: Towards the end of the song "Out There" Quasimodo climbs onto the large spire on the roof. That spire was added in the 19th century and thus didn't exist when the movie was set.

Question: What war is Phoebus returning from?

Answer: That's a good question. France actually fought no wars between the Battle of Castillon in 1451, and the Italian Wars which began in 1494. Seeing as the movie takes place in 1482 it seems strange that Phoebus would have fought in any war, unless he is at least 45 years old.
