The Emperor’s New Groove is one of Disney’s original stories which is a classic and forever memorable.

After the end of the Renaissance in 1999 with Tarzan, Disney struggled to make a huge financial dent in the box office. Even though their animations were profitable after doing what Disney does best, sell Home Videos, direct-to-video sequels and develops TV shows to recoup their financial investment. Disney for years after the Renaissance struggled to get their groove back at the box office. Regardless of these struggles they had one thing going for them, they knew how to produce and write stories that were classics and memorable.

The Emperor's New Groove was released in 2000 and in the same year Disney also released before it, Fantasia and Dinosaur. The Emperor's New Groove was Disney’s 40th animated feature film, and it is one animation you can watch and not get tired of. The production was done to be straight to the point, and the movie shed away the weights of having to many characters.
Just two leads, one human Pacha and the other which has been turned into a llama Kuzco.
The bonding between the two lead characters is what is magical about this ride and the rate of selfishness of the arrogant young Incan emperor named Kuzco was something better seen than heard. It was his selfishness and cruelty that made it hard to feel pity for him when his adviser, Yzma turned him into a llama to gain rule over the country.

Other great characters in the movie other than Pacha is his family. His wife is tough strong and even though in the movie she was expecting Pacha’s third child, she was a force to reckon with along with her two children.
Then there was Kronk, the loyal servant of the cruel advisor and Yzma, he was all muscle and heart with no brain.
After Kuzco was turned into a llama he was to dispose of the body so Kuzco would never be found, but his conscience will not allow him kill Kuzco and he misplaced the sack on Pacha’s wagon.

Pacha gets to his home and while sitting there sad and wondering how to tell his family that Kuzco has decided to drive them away from their home to build himself a pool house; he discovers a sack with a talking llama in it which sounds like Kuzco.

He tells Kuzco that he is no longer human again, and they both set off on a journey. On the journey Kuzco learned to be humble and appreciative of people as they head off home to see Yzma and see how Kuzco can be human again.
Great movie that is worth seeing numerous times as you will be laughing and be moved all the way through Kuzco learning to be humble as he and Pacha tries to get him back to his palace.
