Hercules, son of the Greek God, Zeus, is turned into a half-god, half-mortal by evil Hades, God of the Underworld, who plans to overthrow Zeus. Hercules is raised on Earth and retains his god-like strength, but when he discovers his immortal heritage Zeus tells him that to return to Mount Olympus he must become a true hero. Hercules becomes a famous hero with the help of his friend Pegasus and his personal trainer, Phil the satyr. Hercules battles monsters, Hades and the Titans, but it is his self-sacrifice to rescue his love Meg which makes him a true hero.Written by

The wall painting in Alcmene and Amphitryon's bedroom is the famous "Spring Fresco" from the Greek island of Thera and can be seen at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. See more »
When Hercules opens the case, all that falls out are two pots, two bowling pins, a helmet, a sword, and two pairs of armor. A purple cape, two shields, many other pots, a sandal, a trophy, and a white ball with a blue stripe are among many of the additional items that appear out of thin air in the very next shot.

Long ago, in the faraway land of ancient Greece, there was a golden age of powerful gods and extraordinary heroes. And the greatest and strongest of all these heroes was the mighty Hercules. But what is the measure of a true hero? Ah, that is what our story is...
Will you listen to him? He's makin' the story sound like some Greek tragedy.
Lighten up, dude.
We'll take it from here, darling.

The 2014 DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital printings plaster the 1990 Walt Disney Pictures logo with the 2011 variant of the 2006 logo which just reads "Disney". See more »
After two decades, it remains one of the most seductive and provocative Disney film. for the humor for adults. for the adventures for kids. for the flavvor of "40-"50 musicals. for Hades . and, especially, for Megara. sure, the classic Greek mythology is the lead victim. but, after 20 years of innovation and so many blockbursters ignoring the accuracy of tradition, maybe, that is not a real significant sin. one of motifs - it has the innocence who is rare in present animation. it has the right dose of fun and challenge, a not complex story but one who preserves the flavor of old fashion fairy tales. and that is a profound good aspect. because it gives the right state of joy. and unique childhood emotion.
