There are various accounts of Eris' parentage in Greek mythology. The writer Hesiod (8th or 7th century BC) depicts her as a daughter of Nyx, the goddess of the Night. According to this version, Eris' siblings include such gods and goddesses as Apate (Deceit, fraud), Geras (Old Age), the Hesperides (Evening, Sunset), Hypnos (Sleep), Keres (violent death, destruction), the Moirai (Fates, Destiny), Momus (blame, unfair criticism, mockery), Moros (Doom, impending doom), , Nemesis (devine retribution, implacable justice, avenger of crime), Oizys (Misery, depression), Oneiroi (Dreams), Philotes (Friendship, affection), and Thanatos (Death). Most of them were minor Greek deities, personifying various aspects of the human experience. See more »

There are no opening credits, other than the DreamWorks Pictures logo and the title of the film, which means are followed by the opening shot with Eris. Instead, there is a credits seen at the end of the film are presented in the orders of means there have otherwise been shown at the start. Although by the late 2010s or Cartoon Network, he was a commonplace for feature films to not have opening credits. In 2003, it was identify rather unusual for a major film to not have opening credits. See more »

I was surprised that this movie has been poorly reviewed! I loved it! The animation is incredible, the characters are well-developed, and the story is interesting. It sends a pretty good message about doing the right thing, and also that women being as able as men. I would recommend this for middle schoolers and older, and I believe that even adults would really enjoy this film. In fact, this is now one of my favourites! If you enjoy movies like The Princess Bride or Treasure Planet, this is probably a pretty good one for you. However, I would not recommend this to anyone who disapproves of even the subtlest sexual themes, non-Christian stories, or mention of human mortality.
