Happy 19th Birthday, Hercules!

That’s right, folks! Last week marked the 19th anniversary of the cult classic, Disney’s Hercules. To celebrate, Disney released a Side-by-Side video showcasing the famous Zero to Hero number alongside the original storyboard version.

And yes, those are actual actresses doing parallel choreography meant for cartoon characters; because Disney is excessive and we all love it.

Seeing this video has given new hope to fans who long for a live-action remake of the hero’s adventures. If Disney could produce the masterpiece above as a “rough-draft” almost 20 years ago, imagine what they could do today.

No live-action remake has been announced, though, so let’s review some of the best moments from the iconic film:

Yep. It’s been 19 years and we’re still struggling to get this one out of our heads.

3. Megara’s Sass.

Step down, Elsa, Megara was (and still is) the strongest, most independent Disney girl to ever have graced the screens.

4. The Muses

You could sit there and pretend that you don’t wish these ladies narrated your life through song. Or you could tell the truth.

5. Go the Distance

That song you STILL use to motivate yourself.

Actually, Orpheus was the one who ventured into the underworld to bring his lover back, but hey, this was a good way to end the movie.
