Apollo is the Olympian God of the Sun in Disney's 1997 film Hercules and its television series.

  • As the god of the Sun

Appearances

Hercules

In the film, Apollo has a very minor role in which he only appears in minor cameos.

In the beginning of the film, he is present for the party celebrating the arrival of Zeus and Hera's newborn child Hercules. Apollo, along with the other deities, is sent to find Hercules, but it is too late, as the baby had already been turned into a mortal, and was adopted by a mortal family. Eighteen years later, he is seen imprisoned with the other gods after they lost against Hades and the Titans. He and the other gods are soon freed by Hercules.

Hercules: The Animated Series

Apollo makes his first appearance in "Hercules and the Apollo Mission". In this episode, Hercules wants a better job for Career Day, so Zeus puts Hercules in charge of Apollo's Sun Chariot, which pulls the Sun through the sky. However, the chariot is stolen by Pain and Panic, and Apollo, believing that Hercules lost it, begins to question Zeus' leadership.

In "Hercules and the Pool Party", Apollo is one of the gods that Hades invites to a pool party in an enchanted pool to makes them forget who they are. Also, Hercules easily rangles Apollo's empty chariot, which had been going without its driver.

Trivia

  • Apollo is the only Olympian deity who name is both Greek and Roman.
  • Although Apollo was the twin brother of Artemis in Greek mythology, the Disney versions of the characters are never seen interacting with one another. It is unknown if the two are related in these incarnations.
  • Apollo is depicted as the driving source of the Sun's orbit within the Hercules story. However, on multiple occasions, particularly concerning Hercules' friend Icarus (whom Apollo apparently mentioned to Zeus), the Sun is depicted as an independent celestial body.
