Fun, fun movie. After being flooded with mixed CGI features, it's so nice to go back and watch simple animated features from the early 2000's, bad and good (this, "The Jungle Book 2," and "Hey Arnold: The Movie" to name a few). Just a nice, breezy adventure, innocuous and high-energy. Great voice acting by the way.
Although Kingdom of the Sun could have been interesting (see The Sweatbox for more), The Emperor's New Groove still remains a childhood favourite, departing from the typical Disney musical formula, being loonier than anything Disney did before, and especially keeping heart and moralistic value.
The body language of each character are not only brilliantly realized by the animators, but are perfectly matched to each voice actor's style. Inspired performances by Spade, Goodman, Kitt, and show-stealer Patrick Warburton as Kronk, remind us that Disney voice-casting should be more than just employing hot commodities. The story arc limitations of the "Disney formula" are recognizable- and promptly transcended.
