Animation on the film first began in early 1995.
Almost 700 artists were involved in creating the film.
Gerald Scarfe, a British political cartoonist, assisted with character design.
Members of the creative team visited Greece and Turkey in the summer of 1994 to look at the ancient sites and landscapes.
The film features the first use of morphing in the animation process.
The five Muses in this film are: Kalliope (epic poetry), Polymnia (sacred music), Erato (love poems), Terpsichore (dance), and Thaleia (comedy), although there were nine Muses in Greek mythology.
It was nominated for an Academy Award in 1997 for Best Original Song, "Go The Distance". The same song was also nominated for a Golden Globe that year.
Meg: You know how men are. They think "No" means "Yes" and "Get lost" means "Take me. I'm yours."
Meg: I'm a big tough girl. I tie my own sandals and everything.
Panic: Hercules. Why does that name ring a bell?
Pain: I don't know. Um, maybe we owe him money?
Meg: Megara. My friends call me Meg. At least they would if I had any friends. So did they give you a name along with all those rippling pectorals?
Hades: It's a small underworld, after all, huh?
