If you do a hunchback fanmake...don't use a magical villain of one who openly admits he/she is evil as Frollo; really contradicts and suddenly a need to throw in some religion only because the film did.

i have seen many fanmakes where the author is guilty of this;

i seen the following as Frollo

1. Maleficent

2. Dr Facilier

3. Chase Young

4. Vlad Masters

5. Light Yagami (cheating here, yeah, but the death note is a supernatural thing and the author hardly ever used it, making the casting a bit pointless.)

6. Voldemort.

That's....good advice, and it's well made. Who would make a better Frollo then? I know Magneto wouldn't count, because he's a Mutant and he's for Mutant supremacy. Not Jafar either. 

It's quite a puzzle, since in the original book Frollo was actually a Priest of the Church and he lusted after a SIXTEEN year old girl who happened to be named Esmeralda.

No character with powers. BUt the character has to at least have some sort of prevertedmess to him or her or it won't work.

Hell even if you wanna change the lust to just wanting someone for their power, it'd work. But depending on the villain...might have to cut hellfire altogether because not every villain has to sing.

Something to think about, but Hellfire's just too damn good to pass up.

Well it's not always needed. Not every villain is a singing villain. You can do a fanmake  without the song .

I mean I just cringe whenever I read a villain taht doesn't and has never sung sing hellfire.

I suppose you do have a point to that. Still something to think about.

It really makes sense, better understand the character before casting, right?

Frollo is a hard villain to write. 

he's one of the most complex Disney villains. That version of the character was based off a version of Frollo from a 1920's Opera which took quite a few liberties from the original novel by Victor Hugo. 

Nostalgia critic had one of the best analysis of Frollo I've ever seen. His villain song isn't about how evil he is or how much he craves power; it's a song about him losing his sanity to obsession, prejudice and fear of hell. Pretty much everything you don't put in a kids movie. 

Hell, he lacks the sheer ego of a megalomaniac like Light Yagami or Voldemort; both of whom fit into the sociopath archetype. Frollo is more of a Cotton Mather type; austere, almost puritan in his simplicity and merciless in his persecution of heresy, and the pursuit of purity. 

If you wanted to adapt Frollo for a fanmake, it's a tall order but not impossible. But first a person has to understand Frollo before making it happen.

Yeah the "religious nut" that is Frollo doesn't mix well if the person portraying him is magic. Hell he'd hate most of the Disney Villain because they'd represent things he hates: magic by either practicing it or involving themselves in it in someway, lustfulness in a few of the male villains (he freaks out because he got the hots for Esmeralda), and just the his ego overall of moral and religious superiority despite his own hypocrisies. 

Frollo's an interesting character with him (falsely) believing he's purging the world of sin and how his obsession with Esmeralda gradually driving him to insanity. I can understand why people see him as one of, if not THE darkest Disney Villains in the animated canon. Also the closest Disney has made to a rapist with how... disgusting he is toward Esmeralda.
