Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Ever since the dawn of cinema, filmmakers have been trying to capture the myth and magic of the mighty Hercules. Now with this animated adventure viewers can finally follow the Greek legend on one of his most exciting journeys ever. Hercules is the son of Zeus, and his righteous heir to the royal throne was thrown into jeopardy when spiteful goddess Hera selected Eurystheus as king in Hercules' place. Blessed with a supernatural strength that placed him well above mortal man, Hercules' lifelong battle to reclaim his throne finds him pitted against some of the most fearsome beasts ever to grace the land, including the cunning Cerebus and the dreaded nine-headed Hydra.
