Hercules in Live Action ?

I found this casting proposal by someone online, but I am not sure if Disney is considering such a project.
Still, this lineup for the lead actors is pretty inspired, but I don't know if these actors can actually sing Alan Menken songs if this would be a musical like our 1997 animated film.

Thinking back, I really had a great time animating this guy. After three Disney villains in a row, Hercules presented a new welcomed challenge.
And I very much enjoyed working with Ken Duncan (Meg) as well as Nik Ranieri (Hades).

Here is a link to an earlier post about my work on Hercules:


  1. Ken Duncan posted a lot of pictures of you and other animators who worked on 'Hercules'. I'm sure you have already seen them :)
    Just in case:

  2. Hi Andreas!

    I'm a reporter working on a story about "The Lion King" and would love to interview you about animating Mufasa's death scene. Please email me at if you're interested in speaking. Thank you!
