When you hear the name “Hades” your mind may jump directly to the blue fiery haired, beloved, sometimes hated antagonist from the Disney cartoon, Hercules. The Disney film was released in 1997 and Hades was played by the actor, James Woods.

Throughout the years, Disney has changed its animation style, as well as its method of storytelling. Currently, Disney films try to stay relevant to how women and men are treated in society.
