Hercules is an American musical fantasy comedy film based on the 1997 animated film of the same name.

Plot Summary[]

The film begins at a theater in ancient Greece, where the story of Hercules is being performed. Just as the narrator is doing the introductory monologue, he is suddenly heckled by a few women in the audience, who say that he's making the story boring. They then say they'll tell the story themselves, despite objections about women performing on stage. The five women suddenly surprise everyone when they reveal themselves to be the Muses, "Goddesses of the arts & proclaimers of heroes", & they tell the story of how Zeus came to power & prevented the monstrous Titans from ruling the world.

Differences from the 1997 film[]

  • The original film begins in what appears to be a modern-day museum, while the remake begins at a theater in Ancient Greece.
  • Like in the 1997 film, in the end, Hercules chooses to stay on Earth with Meg. In the remake, not only does Zeus & Hera accept Hercules's decision, but they tell him that he & Meg may return to Olympus together once they reach the end of their mortal lives.
