Juggling in Movies

The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996)

[Walt Disney Productions, Buena Vista Pictures]

In 15th century Paris, Clopin the puppeteer tells the story of Quasimodo, the misshapen gentle-souled bell ringer of Notre Dame, who was nearly killed as a baby by the Minister of Justice. Quasimodo meets the lively gypsy girl Esmeralda and the handsome soldier Phoebus. Quasimodo must desperately defend both Esmeralda and the very cathedral of Notre Dame.

This includes a brief moment of juggling in a shower pattern. It occurs at the beginning of the movie when the gargoyles are encouraging Quasimodo to go to the Festival of Fools and mention that jugglers will be there. The actual festival scenes, however, don't include any jugglers.
