Previously available as both a single disc and "two disc" special edition, "DISNEY has re-released "THE EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE". The video and audio elements appear to be unchanged, however there are a few more deleted scenes offered here than in the single disc edition.
David Spade is terrific as Emperor Kuzco, a selfish ruler whom reaps the anger of one of his assistants, causing him to be turned into a llama. Befriended by a llama herder, Pacha, whose town has been set to be uprooted so Kuzco can have a water slide, the emperor still doesn't change his mind, making the story more compelling and unpredictable. The film tends to be built around Spade's type of sarcastic humor and it works wonderfully on that level. but those expecting a beautiful, poignant "BEAUTY AND THE BEAST" type film will be disappointed.
