Hidden Gems: Hercules (1997)

*The two guys Hercules knocks over with the hay cart are actually caricatures of the film’s writer/director duo John Musker and Ron Clements.

*After Megara’s encounter with Hercules, she stumbles into the forest where she is met by Pain and Panic disguised as loveable woodland creatures. These are based around the designs of the animals in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937).

*When Hercules poses for a painting he’s wearing lion fur. It’s actually Scar from The Lion King (1994). This is because Andreas Deja animated both Scar and Hercules.

*During Meg’s song, The Muses appear as busts in a homage to the five singing busts outside The Haunted Mansion in Disneyland.
