Disney's Hercules the Muses

My son Sebastian is big on Hercules at the moment and although I am not a big fan of the story behind the movie, I mean please: Hera the doting mother!! The greek god Zeus' son is called Heracles, Can anyone say Titans and Perseus, Pegasus??, the muses?? and the list goes on and on.

The one thing I can say about the movie is that I this is the first time I ever enjoyed watching a black or black inspired character in a Disney movie (This is some 10 years before Tiana, back in 1997). They all rock what they got and they all have different ways of wearing their hair. As in real life we all choose to wear our hair differently and I loved that all the muses had great hair dos. Apart from that, this film is a happy go lucky complete departure from the Greek tale of Heracles, but my kids love it!
