Zeus is a character in Disney's 1940 short The Pastoral Symphony, a segment of the 1940 film Fantasia. He is not to be mistaken with the heroic Zeus from the 1997 film Hercules. He has a slightly different appearance in this and interrupts Bacchus' party with the Centaurs, Centaurettes, Cherubs and Pegasus, throwing lightning bolts for his personal entertainment, a portrayal closer to his mythological counterpart.
Following his mythological counterpart closer then his Hercules counterpart, Zeus is more of a mischief maker who doesn't really think of how his actions affect beings below and is more focused on creating amusement for himself with his lightning storms.
Zeus is a giant god with a blue robe, white beard and blue eyes.
Role in the film
Zeus interrupts Bacchus's party and creates a powerful thunderstorm, working with Vulcan on sending down thunderbolts as well as creating terrible winds to drive the storm.
