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 shooting star Hercules sees during "Go the Distance" is actually Pegasus watching over him. See more »
During the scene with Megara and Hercules by the fountain, the armless statue at the end changes into a man and a woman holding a ribbon between scenes. Also, during that scene, Meg and Hercules change locations around the fountain and the statue rotates with them. See more »
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.
You go, girl.

Instead of a reprise of "A Star is Born," a pop-rock rendition of "I Won't Say (I'm In Love)" by American singer Belinda Carlisle is heard during the end credits of some non-English-language versions of this movie. See more »
I loved Hercules and not just cause my son did a voice in it (Kellen Hathaway.. little boy) it was fun, fast and bright! I loved the Muses and Meg.. and well Tate Donovan is hot!!! I thought using Charleston Heston as the narrator was brilliant, James Woods rocked as Hades and Danny DeVito couldn't have been better! The animation was great.. best Disney has put together in quite a while! I think that it was better than Little Mermaid musically and tho robin williams was a hoot as the genie in aladin I enjoyed Hercules all around much better. I smiled as the muses sang and laughed at Hades. Its a wonderful movie all around recommended to all!
