Disney’s Hercules was released into theatre June 27, 1997, just 19 short years ago. To celebrate its 19th anniversary some never before seen behind the scenes footage has been released. It shows the live action footage the animators used to draw the gospel montage “Zero to Hero”.
The dancers are performing the exact movements that we see the Muses do in the film. This footage also includes the storyboards to fill in the non-muse parts.
If you head over to Disney.com you can read what co-directors Ron Clements and John Musker had to say after seeing the film again for the first time since release.
