Abstract

The central purpose of the present research is to examine the traditional and preconceived stereotypes on gender behaviours and appearances portrayed in the Disney motion picture “Hercules”. The Disney motion picture Hercules comprises various samples of gender related metaphors throughout the plot that provides a depiction of traditional conceptions and ideologies of masculine and feminine gender roles. The paper discusses how these sex orientation and gender stereotypes are slow injected into the contents of this simple humorous entertainment. While children are believed to learn and inherit the good qualities of the protagonists in the movie, they are also subjected to traditional gender related mannerisms and behaviours that these characters portray. This way the paper tries to provide a different conception to the audience towards these Disney movies, which are considered as mere children fantasies.
