the city Pacha returns home but does not tell his family about Kuzcos decision After awakening from the bag on the cart scaring Pacha Kuzco blames Pacha for his transformation and orders him to take

affairs on Kuzcoss palace Productionedit Kingdom of the Sunedit Kingdom of the Sun was such a heartbreaking experience for me I put four years of my heart and energy into that one I was creating an epic picture mixing elements of adventure comedy romance and mysticism The head of Disney Features at the time was afraid that we were doing in his opinion too many films in the same vein He was also uncomfortable with the spiritual and cultural Inca aspects of it Hence he decided to make it a simple slapstick comedy Would it have worked out if we had had more time I would hope so but one can never know these things Roger Allers reflecting on the troubled history of Kingdom of the Sun3 The idea of Kingdom of the Sun was conceived by Roger Allers and Matthew Jacobs4 and development on the project began in 1994 5 Upon pitching the project to thenDisney CEO and chairman Michael Eisner Allers recalled Eisner saying it has all of the elements of a classic Disney film6 and because of his directorial success on The Lion King that same year Eisner allowed Allers to have free rein with both the casting and the storyline 7 By January 1995 Variety reported that Allers was working on an Incathemed original story 8 In 1996 the production crew traveled to Machu Picchu in Peru to study Inca artifacts and architecture and the landscape this empire was created in 910 Kingdom of the Sun was to have been a tale of a greedy selfish emperor voiced by David Spade who finds a peasant voiced by Owen Wilson who looks just like him the emperor swaps places with the peasant to escape his boring life and have fun much as in author Mark Twains archetypal novel The Prince and the Pauper However the evil witch Yzma has plans to summon the evil god Supai and destroy the sun so that she may retain her youth forever the sun gives her wrinkles so she surmises that living in a world of darkness would prevent her from wrinkling Discovering the switch between the prince and the peasant Yzma turns the real emperor into a llama and threatens to reveal the paupers identity unless he obeys her The emperorllama learns humility in his new form and even comes to love a female llamaherder named Mata voiced by Laura Prepon 11 Together the girl and the llama set out to undo the witchs plans The book Reel Views 2 says the film would have been a romantic comedy musical in the traditional Disney style 12 Following the underwhelming box office performances of Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame studio executives felt the project was growing too ambitious and serious for audiences following test screenings and needed more comedy 13 In early 1997 producer Randy Fullmer contacted Mark Dindal who had just wrapped up work on Cats Dont Dance and offered him to be codirector on Kingdom of the Sun 14 Meanwhile Allers personally called Sting in the wake of Elton Johns success with The Lion Kings soundtrack to compose several songs for the film 6 He agreed but on the condition that his filmmaker wife Trudie Styler could document the process of the production 15 This film which was eventually entitled The Sweatbox was made by Xingu Films their own production company Along with collaborator David Hartley Sting composed eight songs inextricably linked with the original plot and characters 5 In summer 1997 it was announced that Roger Allers and Mark Dindal would serve as the films directors and Randy Fullmer as producer David Spade and Eartha Kitt had been confirmed to voice the emperor Manco and the villainess while Carla Gugino was in talks for a role 1617Harvey Fierstein was also cast as Hucua Yzmas sidekick 6 By the summer of 1998 it was apparent that Kingdom of the Sun was not far along enough in production to be released in the summer of 2000 as planned At this time one of the Disney executives reportedly walked into Randy Fullmers office and placing his thumb and forefinger a quarterinch apart stated your film is this close to being shut down 18 Fullmer approached Allers and informed him of the need to finish the film on time for its summer 2000 release as crucial promotional deals with McDonalds CocaCola and other companies were already established and depended upon meeting that release date Allers acknowledged that the production was falling behind but was confident that with an extension of between six months to a year he could complete the film When Fullmer denied Allerss request for an extension the director decided to leave the project 18 On September 23 1998519 the project was dead with production costs amounting towards 25–30 million57 and twentyfive percent of the film animated 20 Production overhaul and script rewriteedit Upset that Allers left the project Michael Eisner reportedly gave Fullmer two weeks to salvage the film or production would be shut down 21 Fullmer and Dindal halted production for six months to retool the project retitling it to Kingdom in the Sun14 making it the first Disney animated feature to have an extensive overhaul since Pinocchio 22 Meanwhile following Eric Goldbergs pitch for the Rhapsody in Blue segment for Fantasia 2000 the animators were reassigned to work on the segment 23 In the interim Chris Williams who was a storyboard artist during Kingdom of the Sun24 came up with the idea of making Pacha an older character as opposed to the teenager that he was in the original story 25 Following up on the new idea former latenight comedy writer David Reynolds stated I pitched a simple comedy thats basically a buddy road picture with two guys being chased in the style of a Chuck Jones toon but faster paced Disney said Give it a shot 26 One of the new additions to the revised story was the scenestealing character of Yzmas sidekick Kronk 27 Meanwhile the name Manco was changed to Kuzco following Fullmers discovery of the Japanese slang term omanco which translates to vagina 7 Due in part of the production shutdown Sting began to develop schedule conflicts with his songwriting duties interfering with his work on his next album he was planning to record in Italy I write the music and then theyre supposed to animate it but there are constantly changes being made Its constantly in turnaround the singersongwriter admitted but Im enjoying it 628 Because of the shutdown the computeranimated film Dinosaur assumed the summer 2000 release date originally scheduled for Kingdom 7 Andreas Deja declined to return to the film observing his more serious version of Yzma was incompatible with the wackier comedic tone of the film and moved to Orlando Florida to work on Lilo & Stitch Animator Dale Baer would replace Deja as the supervising animator for Yzma 29 Fulmer would inform Sting by telephone that his songs related to specific scenes and characters that were now gone had to be dropped 630 Bitter about the removal of his songs the pop musician commented that At first I was angry and perturbed Then I wanted some vengeance Disney eventually agreed to allow three of the six deleted songs as bonus tracks on the soundtrack album such as Yzmas villain song titled Snuff Out the Light the love song titled One Day Shell Love Me and a dance number called Walk the Llama Llama 31 The plot elements such as the romance between the llama herder Pacha and Mancos betrothed Nina the suncapturing villain scheme similarities to The Prince and the Pauper stories and Inca mythology were dropped 32 The character of Hucua was also dropped from the story though he would make a cameo appearance as the candle holder during the dinner scene in the finished film Kuzco – who was a supporting character in the original story – eventually became the protagonist 34 By summer 1999 cast members Owen Wilson Harvey Fierstein and Trudie Styler were dropped from the film 35 Eartha Kitt and David Spade remained in the cast Dindal commented and then John Goodman and Patrick Warburton who played Elaines boyfriend Puddy on the Seinfeld series came aboard 36 After Stings songs for Kingdom of the Sun were dropped from the new storyline Sting remained on the project though he was told by the studio that All we want is a beginning and an end song 37 The song Perfect World was approached to open the movie with a big fun number that established the power of Kuzco and showed how he controlled the world according to Feature Animation president Thomas Schumacher 38 The filmmakers had asked Sting to perform the song for the film though Sting declined telling them that he was too old to sing it and that they should find someone younger and hipper They instead went with Tom Jones who is eleven years older than Sting 39 In February 2000 the new film was announced as The Emperors New Groove with its new story centering on a spoiled Inca Emperor – voiced by David Spade – who through various twists and falls ends up learning the meaning of true happiness from a poor peasant played by John Goodman The release date was scheduled for December 2000 40 Despite the phrasing of the title the film bears no relation to Hans Christian Andersens classic Danish fairy tale The Emperors New Clothes although both stories involve an emperor being tricked 41 However Eisner worried that the new story was too close in tone to Disneys 1997 film Hercules which had performed decently yet below expectations at the American box office Dindal and Fullmer assured him that The Emperors New Groove as the film was now called would have a much smaller cast making it easier to involve audiences Towards the end of production the films ending originally had Kuzco building his Kuzcotopia amusement park on another hill by destroying a rainforest near Pachas home and inviting Pacha and his family to visit Horrified at the ending Sting commented that I wrote them a letter and said You do this Im resigning because this is exactly the opposite of what I stand for Ive spent 20 years trying to defend the rights of indigenous people and youre just marching over them to build a theme park I will not be party to this 42 The ending was rewritten so that Kuzco constructs a shack similar to Pachas and spends his vacation among the villagers 43 Design and animationedit During production on Kingdom of the Sun Andreas Deja was the initial supervising animator of Yzma and incorporated supermodeling poses published in magazines in order to capture Yzmas sultry seductive persona 44Nik Ranieri was originally slated as the supervising animator for Yzmas rocky sidekick Hucua During the research trip to Peru in 1996 Ranieri acknowledged that I was researching for a character that looked like a rock so I was stuck drawing rocks for the whole trip Then when we got back they piled it into this story about ancient Incas 45 Mark Pudleiner was to be the supervising animator of Kuzcos proposed maiden Nina 46 In early 1997 David Pruiksma came on board to animate the llama Snowball 47 According to Pruiksma Snowball was a silly vain and egotistical character rather the dumb blond of the llama set I really enjoyed developing the character and doing some early test animation on her as well Before I left the film and it was ultimately shelved I created model sheets for not only Snowball but for the rest of the herd of seven other llamas and for Kuzco as a Llama 48 When the film was placed on production shutdown Pruiksma transferred to work on Atlantis The Lost Empire being developed concurrently and ultimately the llama characters were dropped from the storyline 47 Following the production overhaul and the studios attempts for more costefficient animated features Mark Dindal urged for a simpler approach that emphasized the characters rather than overwhelming special effects or cinematic techniques 49 Because of the subsequent departure of Deja animator Dale Baer inherited the character of Yzma Using Eartha Kitts gestures during recording sessions Baer commented that She has a natural voice for animation and really got into the role She would gesture wildly and it was fun just to watch her She would come into each session almost serious and very professional and suddenly she would go wild and break up laughing 50 Ranieri was later asked to serve as the supervising animator of Kuzco as a human and a llama though he would admit being reluctant at first until he discovered that Kuzco had a side to him there was a lot of comedy potential and as a character he went through an arc 45 Pudleiner was also reassigned to work as an animator of the human version of Kuzco 51 In addition to drawing inspiration from David Spade during recording sessions the Kuzco animation team studied llamas at the zoo visited a llama farm watched nature documentaries and even observed the animals up close when they came for a visit to the studio 49 For the rewritten version of Pacha animator Bruce W Smith observed that Pacha is probably the most human of all the characters and further added that he has more human mannerisms and realistic traits which serve as a contrast to the cartoony llama he hangs out with He is the earthy guy who brings everything back into focus Being a big fellow about sixfootfive and weighing about 250 pounds we had to work hard to give him a sense of weight and believability in his movement 49 Actual animation began in 1999 involving 400 artists and 300 technicians and production personnel 45 Outside of the Walt Disney Feature Animation studio building in Burbank California animators located at Walt Disney Feature Animation Florida and Disney Animation France assisted in the production of The Emperors New Groove 52 During the last eighteen months of production a 120crew of cleanup artists would take an animation cel drawing from the animation department and place a new piece of paper over the existing image in order to draw a cleaner more refined image Were basically the final designers said cleanup supervisor Vera Pacheco whose crew worked on more than 200000 drawings for Groove 53 Releaseedit After the release date had shifted to winter 2000 similarities were noted between the film and DreamWorks Animations The Road to El Dorado 54 Marc Lument a visual development artist on El Dorado claimed It really was a race and Katzenberg wanted ours out before theirs Lument also added that We didnt know exactly what they were doing but we had the impression it was going to be very similar Whoever came out second would face the impression that they copied the other 4 Fullmer and Dindal denied the similarities with the latter commenting This version The Emperors New Groove was well in the works when that movie came out and further added Early on when our movie got to be very comic all of us felt that you cant be making this farce about a specific group of people unless we are going to poke fun at ourselves This didnt seem to be a proper choice about Incas or any group of people It was more of a fable 55 The marketing campaign for The Emperors New Groove was relatively restrained as Disney opted to heavily promote the release of 102 Dalmatians which was released during Thanksgiving 5556 Nevertheless the film was accompanied with six launcher toys of Kuzco Kuzco as a llama Pacha Yzma Yzma as a cat and Kronk57 accompanied with Happy Meals at McDonalds in North America The European Asian and Australian toys from 2001 were different from the North American set Stuffed animals were also made and sold in places like The Disney Store Home mediaedit The standard VHS and DVD was released May 1 2001 as well as a 2Disc Collectors Edition that included bonus features such as Stings music video of My Funny Friend and Me a Rascal Flatts music video of Walk the Llama Llama from the soundtrack audio commentary with the filmmakers a multiskill level Set Top Game with voice talent from the movie and a deleted scene among other features 58 Unlike its theatrical box office performance the film performed better on home video becoming the topselling home video release of 2001 59 In September 2001 it was reported that 6 million VHS units were sold amounting towards 89 million in revenue On DVD it was also reported it had sold twice as many sales The overall revenue averaged toward 125 million according to Adams Media Research 60 Disney rereleased a singledisc special edition called The New Groove Edition on October 18 2005 Disney digitally remastered and released The Emperors New Groove on Bluray on June 11 2013 bundled in a twomovie collection combo pack with its directtovideo sequel Kronks New Groove 61 On its first weekend it sold 14000 Bluray units grossing 282000 62 Receptionedit Box officeedit On its opening weekend The Emperors New Groove premiered at fourth place grossing about 10 million behind strong competitions such as What Women Want Dude Wheres My Car and How the Grinch Stole Christmas 63 Overall the film grossed 89302687 at the U S box office and an additional 80025000 worldwide totals lower than those for most of the Disney Feature Animation productions released in the 1990s 1 Because of its preColumbian setting and Latin American flavor Disney spent 250000 in its marketing campaign towards the Latino market releasing dual English and Spanishlanguage theatrical prints in sixteen multiplexes across heavily populated Latino areas in Los Angeles California in contrast to releasing dubbed or subtitled theatrical prints of their previous animated features in foreign markets 64 By January 2001 following nineteen days into its theatrical general release the Spanishdubbed prints were pulled from multiplexes as Latino Americans opted to watch the Englishlanguage prints with its grossing averaging 571000 in comparison to 96000 for the former 65 Critical responseedit On Rotten Tomatoes it receives an 85 Certified Fresh approval rating based on 128 reviews with an average of 7 110 The sites critical consensus reads The Emperors New Groove isnt the most ambitious animated film but its brisk pace fresh characters and big laughs make for a great time for the whole family 66 On Metacritic the film has a score of 70 out of 100 based on 28 critics indicating generally favorable reviews 67 Many critics and audiences generally consider the film to be one of the better films of Disneys postRenaissance era and also one of the most comedic 68 Writing for Variety Robert Koehler commented the film may not match the groovy business of many of the studios other kidpix but it will be remembered as the film that established a new attitude in the halls of Disneys animation unit 69Roger Ebert writing his review for Chicago SunTimes awarded the film 3 out of 4 stars distinguishing the film as a goofy slapstick cartoon with the attention span of Donald Duck that is separate from whats known as animated features Ebert would later add that it doesnt have the technical polish of a film like Tarzan but is a reminder that the classic cartoon look is a beloved style of its own 70Entertainment Weekly critic Lisa Schwarzbaum graded the film a B describing it as a hip funny mostly nonmusical decidedly nonepic family picture which turns out to be less of a heros journey than a meeting of sitcom minds 71 Published in The Austin Chronicle Marc Savlov gave the film 25 stars noting the film suffers from a persistent case of narrative backsliding that only serves to make older members of the audience long for the days of the dwarves beauties and poisoned apples of Disneyyore and younger ones squirm in their seats Savlov continued to express his displeasure in the animation in comparison to the previous years Tarzan writing it is also a minor letdown with none of the ecstatic visual tour de force 72 Movie reviewer Bob Strauss acknowledged the film is funny frantic and colorful enough to keep the small fry diverted for its short but strained 78 minutes though except for some nice voice work a few impressive scale gags and interesting Incainspired design elements there is very little here for the rest of the family to latch onto Strauss would target the massive story overhaul during production as the main problem 73 Accoladesedit The Sweatboxedit Main article
