In this animated comedy from the folks at Disney, the vain and cocky Emperor Kuzco (David Spade) is a very busy man. Besides maintaining his "groove", and firing his suspicious administrator, Yzma (Eartha Kitt), he's also planning to build a new waterpark just for himself for his birthday. However, this means destroying one of the villages in his kingdom. Meanwhile, Yzma is hatching a plan to get revenge and usurp the throne. But, in a botched assassination courtesy of Yzma's right-hand man, Kronk (Patrick Warburton), Kuzco is magically transformed into a llama. Now, Kuzco finds himself the property of Pacha, a lowly llama herder whose home is ground zero for the water park. Upon discovering the llama's true self, Pacha offers to help resolve the Emperor's problem and regain his throne, only if he promises to move his water park.Written by

Gah! You threw off my groove,
I'm sorry but you've thrown off the Emperor's groove.

A sequence showing Kuzco's guards training for the destruction of Pacha's village was fully animated, scored, and in color when it was deleted from the film. Animation of the guards from this sequence appears during the final battle in the film's third act. This sequence appears as a special feature on the DVD. See more »
A radical departure from Disney's standard approach, this movie will appeal to everyone in all age groups. My 3-year-old daughter loves it, and so do I. This couldn't be a Disney movie, there are no princesses! I would pass up all the classics to watch this movie. I suppose that technically the animation isn't as good as Snow White. All other aspects of the movie are much better. I laughed so hard I cried.
Get the DVD with all the extras.
