In a conversation with Variety, Joe revealed the new 'Hercules' movie will be a musical with an unconventional twist as it will be inspired by Tiktok. He said, "Audiences today have been trained by TikTok, right? What is their expectation of what that musical looks like and feels like? That can be a lot of fun and help us push the boundaries a little bit on how you execute a modern musical.”

A fan wrote, "God I am so ready, I LOVE the original Hercules and I have no idea what inspired by TikTok could possibly mean unless it's just going to be Hercules gaining fame through the ancient Grecian version of the app? Can't wait to find out even if it is a wreck." A fan questioned, "I have no problem with Hercules being a musical the original was but inspired by TikTok?" Lastly, a fan tweeted, "I LOVE HERCULES WITH ALL MY HEART!!!!!!!"
