As an infant, Hercules was kidnapped from the realm of the gods and his parents, Zeus and Hera and stripped of his immortality by minions of Hades. Eighteen years later, Hercules must prove himself a true hero in order to return.

It was a cute enough movie. I feel like it’s skipping the important stuff when it comes to Hercules though. It skipped him growing up, being a hero, falling in love. It’s as if they showed the bare minimum in order to get to the point they needed and just filled in the time with songs. Meg needed more screen time with Hercules though. After finding out what happened with her last boyfriend, this just seemed far too easy.

The voice acting, as with most Disney movies, was good, the songs were catchy and the charters were nice enough looking.

I don’t remember watching this as a kid. Probably because I liked Scar so I had to block it from memory. But I think it’s alright to kill and hour and a half. Not the best mind. But alright.
