Walt Disney Home Entertainment has announced that they are adding The Emperor’s New Groove to their upcoming slate of Blu-ray releases. The film was directed by Mark Dindal and features the voice talents of David Spade, John Goodman, Eartha Kitt, Patrick Warburton, and Wendie Malick. The Blu-ray will also include the sequel, Kronk’s New Groove. The Emperor’s New Groove will be available in stores and online June 11, 2013.
The fun begins with The Emperor’s New Groove, featuring an all-star cast and Academy Award-nominated music by Sting (Best Music, Original Song). When the young and spoiled Emperor Kuzco (Spade) is transformed into a llama by his sinister advisor Yzma (Kitt) and her henchman Kronk (Warburton), it takes a thoughtful peasant named Pasha (Goodman) to restore the kingdom and show Kuzco just how much fun it is to be true to yourself.
Then fans can continue the fun with Kronk’s New Groove. The outrageous sequel stars Yzma’s hilarious henchman Kronk in a riotous adventure that’s filled with hysterical mayhem and mishaps. Kronk cooks up a get-rich quick scheme to impress his Dad. But when things go wrong, Kronk kicks into comical high gear and discovers that the true riches in life are his friends and being “true to your groove.”
The Emperor’s New Groove was released in December of 2000. The film grossed over $169 million in worldwide box office. Kronk’s New Groove was released five years later.
Walt Disney Home Entertainment has not released any details concerning the exact tech specs and special features that will be included with the disc.
