The Emperor’s New Groove (2000)


 The-Emperors-New-Groove“What are the odds of that trap door leadin’ me out here?” – Kronk

Number of Times Seen – 1  (2 May 2014)

Brief Synopsis – In ancient Peru, the Emperor is changed into a llama and must rely on the help of a peasant in order for him to regain his throne.

My Take on it – I can’t explain why I’ve never seen this movie.  I have always known about it, but just didn’t seem too interested in seeing it.

After recently reading about how much of a loveable fool the character of Kronk is on Cara from Silver Screen Serenade‘s series on April fools, I decided to finally check it out. (Thanks Cara for convincing me to see this!)

I was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed this movie (despite being distracted by the weird animation) and most of all found the characters interesting and funny at the same time.

The choice for voice actors was great and they got a long list of A-list actors to lend their voices to this film.

David Spade, John Goodman, Eartha Kitt, Wendie Malick, Tom Jones, John Fielder and Patrick Warburton are all excellent.

Warburton does the voice of the loveable Kronk and I plan on watching the sequel at some point where he plays a prominent role because he’s a great Disney character.

The disappointing parts of this movie are the fact that in some parts, the narrative is a bit uneven and due to the many revisions of the story and direction, only one song by Sting still appears and although it’s a good song, it would have been helped by more similar themed tunes like in most Disney movies of the 90’s.

Bottom Line – A nice edition to the Disney canon. Great voice actors.  Kronk is a great Disney character. Great song by Sting. Recommended!

Rating – Globe Worthy
