Apollo is the Olympian God of the Sun and Music from Disney's 1997 film Hercules and Hercules: The Animated Series|its 1998-99 television series. He is voiced by Keith David.


In Greek mythology, Apollo was the god of the sun. The sun was actually a golden chariot that the god Apollo rode across the sky. Moreover, he was the god of oracles, poetry and music and hence the leader of the Muses. He was the twin brother of Artemis, maiden goddess of the moon and the Hunt.

Hercules (film)Edit

In the film, he 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, was sent to find Hercules, but it was 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. Luckily he and the other gods are freed by Hercules.

Hercules (animated series)Edit

  • 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.
  • 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.
