An outrageous odyssey of fun, fantasy and adventure unfolds in the hilarious hit film Hercules - Disney's 35th animated triumph "brimming with comic surprise!"

Taken from the gods as a newborn, adopted on earth, Hercules becomes an awkward teenage pillar of strength. Trying to fit in, he discovers Zeus is his dad and home is on Mount Olympus - if he can move from "zero" to true hero! Hercules teams with Pegasus, the flying stallion, and Phil - a feisty personal trainer - for the mission. But it's no walk on Acropolis. He must match wits with Grecian beauty Meg and a comical hothead named Hades, who's having a devil of a time with his hostile takeover of the Universe. He's armed with morphing morons Pain and Panic for help, and only Hercules stands in his way!

With a bold animation style, colossal voice cast, and spectacular music, Hercules is unmatched in strength, delivering something for everyone with "pinwheeling, knockabout fun!"
