Movie based on Greek mythology - Hercules
Did You Know?
Medusa, the mythical monster with her snake-like hair, is the most depicted villain in movies based on Greek mythology.
If the present generation thinks that it has a rich imagination, the ones who thought of penning down the intricate and awe-inspiring myths about Greek gods, demigods, and heroes, way surpassed us by leaps and bounds.

As we recreate these ancient lore into movies, the purpose behind it all is to keep these legends alive in the hearts and minds of the viewers. With more movies about Greek mythology being made in the last decade, and more so for the viewership of kids, the objective is to impart knowledge about Greek mythology to our present and future generation.
