Previous scoop on the characters describes Hercules as “a dashing, strapping young man” who is destined "to be the greatest hero who ever lived." However, his plans get derailed when he falls in love with a princess.
Meanwhile, Meg is “a plucky young adventurer with a sly sense of humor," who has been trapped in a dungeon for a long time. Rather than give in, she is simply "waiting for the right opportunity to shine brightly again.”
As TVLine notes, Greg Gurmann has been cast as “The Distinguished Gentlemen,” a character speculated to be Hades. As Gurmann's role is recurring, a reappearance from Hercules and Megara might not be out of the question.
The outlet also reveals that Bailee Madison will be returning as Young Snow White for the episode.
