The Emperor’s New Groove


(out of 5)

The funniest animated Disney film in a long time is this inspired tale about a selfish South American prince () who is turned into a llama by a vengeful old witch (). The self-referential comedy is perfectly toned without overdoing it, and the excellent voice work gives a lot to the production. Sting wrote a couple of songs for the film as well which are both memorable (he wrote a few more but they were cut before the film’s release). Kids and adults will equally enjoy this one.
