Emperor's New Groove
It's not every day that you see a movie where the main character is a talking llama, but this is the case in the new Disney animated feature, The Emperor's New Groove.
The film opens with Emperor Kuzco (David Spade), a fairly obnoxious individual, about to build a giant pool park on top of a local village. This is when we meet Pacha (John Goodman), a representative of the doomed village, who has made the long journey to the Emperor's palace to plead his case. Unfortunately, his plea falls on deaf ears, and he is sent home to await the inevitable.
Movie still, Emperor's New Groove
|Pacha is actually a far more likeable character than Kuzco, who even when transformed into a llama by the evil Yzma (Earth Kitt), is still very naughty…cute, but naughty nonetheless.
Due for Australian release April 5, 2001
