Hercules Fun Facts

  1. The film was directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, who also directed “The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” and “Moana.”
  2. The film’s character designs were inspired by Greek pottery and mythology, with the animators incorporating bold lines and patterns into the characters’ designs.
  3. The film features several references to other Disney films, including “The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” and “The Lion King.”
  4. The role of Hades was originally going to be voiced by actor Jack Nicholson, but he turned down the role.
  5. The film’s production was delayed due to technical difficulties with the new CAPS (Computer Animation Production System) technology being used by Disney at the time. The film was eventually completed on time and within budget, but the delays meant that the film had a shorter production schedule than most other Disney animated features.
