After I finished watching these two animations, I may simply declare that they deserve to be seen, without doubt. I was delighted from the beggining until the end of this simple but very effective cartoon movie. The element which helped the film to be one worth watching are the exchanging funny lines of characters and assured his place in the family movies category. With his good humor and interesting and funny characters this series can be seen by both the olders and the most little ones, having the guaranteed effect that emotions will be the same.
The Emperor's New Groove, the first movie from 2000 is about the story of an unusual duo, consisting of the young Emperor Kuzco and a peasant named Pacha. Emperor Kuzco is turned into a llama by his ex-administrator Yzma, and must now regain his throne with the help of Pacha, the gentle llama herder. Our heroes are isolated in the wilderness and have to rely on each other to survive. The second film Kronk's New Groove differs from the first one with his not so strong conflict and the forced funny scene. However, the moral is just as strong, if not deeper. All his life Kronk was divided between follow his dreams and to please his father, Papi, a man always grumpy and unhappy about his son. The film presents Kronk's inner conflict - to get great achievements that Papi expect from him, but doing things that characterize and often injuring their loved ones around him, or himself.
First movie has been nominated for Oscar and Golden globe award for best original song, no wonder when the soundtrack is signed by Sting and Tom Jones. Therefore, give it a shoot at least for the visual pleasure and its storytelling quality.
