Have you ever wondered how an animated movie actually gets made? Well, Disney is here to
explain show you. The Mouse House released a side-by-side video of Hercules‘ “Zero to Hero” that shows the actual movie next to the storyboard, which is all the original drawings that ultimately become the animations.
The awesome video shows the real life dancers that would become the animated cheerleaders singing “Zero to Hero,” telling the story of our favorite Grecian hero as he rose to fame. Dressed in orange, the group of women dances the famous choreography as the original sketches of the scenes flash by. The drawings are spot-on for what appeared in the actual classic movie. The only difference, however, is that the sketches appear to be more cartoonish and comic book-like than the movie.

“An awesome 10 for 10. Watch ‘Zero to Hero’ from storyboard to final frame. Happy Anniversary, #Hercules,” Disney tweeted. This year marks the 19th anniversary of the beloved movie, so we’ll just have to wait and see what Disney does in honor of its big 2-0 next year.
It has been a celebratory week for the company, as today also marks the eighth anniversary of Wall-E. Just last week The Hunchback of Notre Dame celebrated its 20th anniversary. How time flies when you’re having fun and watching awesome Disney movies.
Watch the video to see just how Hercules went from paper to screen!
