The 35th Disney animated feature film and the eighth animated film produced during the Disney Renaissance, the film was directed by Ron Clements and John Musker. The film is loosely based on the legendary hero Heracles (known in the film by his Roman name, Hercules), the son of Zeus, in Greek mythology.
The film begins with the five muses, \\"Goddesses of the arts and pro-claimers of heroes\\", telling the story of how Zeus came to power and prevented the monstrous Titans from ruling the world. This leads to the day Hercules is born to Zeus and Hera, much to the pleasure of the other gods except Hades, who receives word from the Fates that Hercules will one day rise to power and prevent him from taking control of the world. He sends his minions, Pain and Panic (a duo reminiscent of Ares's mythol...
In the film, Hercules is the son of Zeus and Hera. In the Greek myth, Heracles (or Herakles) is the son of Zeus and a mortal, earth-born woman, Alcmene. Alcmene and her husband, Amphitryon, appear in the Disney's Hercules version, as Hercules' \\"foster parents\\".Hades, voiced by James Woods, is cast as the villain. This idea is similar to that of the Hades of the Marvel Universe (and to a lesser extent, Loki of the Thor series), who wanted to overthrow Zeus and was an ambitious, evil scheming g...

Donovan had not done any voice-over work prior to Hercules. Deja integrated Donovan's \\"charming yet innocent quality\\" into Hercules' expressions. Ricky Martin provided both the speaking voice and singing voice fo...

1. When Hercules walks into Phil's house on the island, he hits his head on the mast of the Argo. Phil tells him to be careful. This is a reference to Jason of the legends of Jason and the Argonauts, who died when the mast of the Argo fell on him. 2. During Hercules' training, he practices a form of karate. This is a reference to the 1984 film, The Karate Kid. 3. The animators spent 6 to 14 hours to render a frame of the Hydra depending on how many heads it had. 1. After Hercules defeats Nes...
