The Emperor's New Groove

The Emperor's New Groove
-Emperor Kuzco is a vain, cocky man who thinks the world revolves around him. He fires his suspicious administrator Yzma and is also planning on opening a waterpark  just for himself for his birthday. But this means destroying a village. Yzma, however plans on getting revenge and she does. She wants him dead so she can ascend to the throne. But in a botched assassination, her assistant Kronk does not kill the emperor, but instead mistakes a death potion for a potion that turns the emperor into a llama, thus keeping him alive. He runs into a local llama herder named Pacha. He and Pacha make a deal- he will help Kuzco get back to his palace if he moves his water park somewhere else, because Pacha's home is ground zero for the new park

-David Spade: Emperor Kuzco
-John Goodman: Pacha
-Eartha Kitt: Yzma
-Patrick Warburton: Kronk, Yzma's assistant
-Wendie Malick: Chicha, Pacha's wife
-Kellyann Kelso: Chaca, Pacha's daughter
-Eli Russell Linnetz: Tipo, Pacha's son
-Bob Bergen: Bucky the Squirrel
-Patti Deutsch: Waitress

Did You Know?
-To sing the opening song, the crew wanted Sting, but they felt he was much older than they wanted, and they got Tom Jones instead, who is 11 years older than Sting
-Pacha's wife Chicha is pregnant the whole time. This is the first Disney movie to feature a pregnant woman
-The restaurant Yzma and Kronk go to is called Mudka's Meat Hut. This is an obvious parody of Frisch's Big Boy
-In the Incan language, "Pacha" means "earth"
-Yzma is often seen wearing purple-  the color od madness
-David Spade was in his mid 30s when recording his voice for the only 18 year old Kuzco
