Have a mighty fun time with HERCULES, Disney’s animated classic from the creators of ALADDIN and THE LITTLE MERMAID. Nominated for an Academy Award(R) (Best Music, Original Song, “Go The Distance,” 1997), this legendary family favorite is packed with colossal laughs and nonstop adventure. Taken from the gods as a newborn and adopted on Earth, Hercules is just an awkward pillar of strength trying to fit in. What he wants most is to impress his father Zeus. When Hercules discovers Hades’ sinister plot to take over Mount Olympus, he goes from zero to hero and, with the help of his pals Pegasus and Phil, discovers that real strength comes from the heart!|British artist/political cartoonist Gerald Scarfe was brought in to assist with character design, and he remained involved as an ongoing artistic advisor to the animators.|A field trip to Greece and Turkey in the summer of 1994 gave artists a firsthand look at landscapes and ancient sites, and an opportunity to hear expert accounts of classic Greek mythology.|Animation began in early 1995, and eventually a team of nearly 700 artists was involved with the project.|HERCULES features the first use of morphing in the animation process.
