The beginnings of a legend
Hercules is the main character of the animated film Hercules of the Disney studios inspired by the mythological character to create their own legend. Hercules is born in Olympus to the great joy of his divine parents, but Hades is jealous of this happiness and more than tired of living in the underworld where he is the guardian. When he learns that a prophecy announces that one day he will be able to conquer the world of the living thanks to the titans on condition that Hercules is dead, he sets up a stratagem. His minions will make the young Hercules drink a potion to make him mortal. But he does not drink it to the end and remains partly divine. Being forced to leave Olympus, the young baby Hercules is taken in by a nice couple and only learns his true identity when he is older. He then decides to do everything he can to become a hero in order to take back his place on Olympus.
