Sting's wife Trudie Styler documents the turbulent bureaucracy both Sting and the filmmakers went through in order to complete "The Emperor's New Groove", a Disney film that underwent extensive storyline changes from start to finish.
Dedicated to the memory of Howard Ashman, Joe Ranft, Frank Wells, and Roy Edward Disney. When the film first premiered Disney was still alive; however after his death in December of 2009 director Don Hahn decided that the "forever version of the movie" should also include Disney and so the change was made prior to the DVD release.

I'm an avid fan of Disney and Disney history. I was elated to hear about this documentary and bought the DVD. Absolutely fascinating subject if you care anything for the history of Disney's place in the entertainment world. It was great to see all the archived footage from the 80s and 90s.
My only gripes with this doc is that there's SO much stuff to cover it can't possibly be done with the confines of a feature length. So to me it felt very rushed as they were pushing through subjects and materials really fast. You may think you'll get a lot of John Lasseter in this and Tim Burton but you don't. they only mention Nightmare Before Christmas and move on. A bit dissatisfying for me since I'm fascinated in the outside people who were working for Disney at the time.
All in all a great Doc on a fascinating subject. But it felt rushed and leaves out quite a bit of stuff I felt should have been mentioned. Maybe one day Ken Burns will make a doc on the subject and I'll finally get my 10 DVD box set! Until then, it's great for the basics. Still a MUST SEE for Disney fans!!! Go see it!
