Producer Randy Fullmer and director Mark Dindal literally run through each department at Disney Animation Studios to show us how their feature was created. While this is a more energized approach (and in tune with the film's spirit), the effort is never as intrinsically funny as the Pixar (Toy Story) gang's behind-the-scenes DVDs. This "Ultimate Edition" is laid out as in previous deluxe Disney DVDs to examine the development and art of the film, including three deleted sequences. With one vital new feature, you can select a tour "Groove" that takes you through 25 minutes of highlights of the filmmaking process instead of clicking through the DVD menus. Unfortunately, the disc does not dig into the origins of the film, originally developed as a musical epic called Kingdom of the Sun. There are only a dozen nondescriptive art drawings that entice us. Instead of illustrating how a massive change in tone was successfully made, Disney just looks the other way. Fans of the final movie should enjoy this two-disc set (especially the conversational tone of the commentary), but this is hardly an "ultimate edition." --Doug Thomas

The Emperor's New Groove is just one of the titles that were treated to a beautiful "Ultimate Collectors Edition 2 Disc DVD Set"
This film goes into depth about its making and even tales what the film was initially going to be which if you didn't know it was going to be a Prince and the Pauper type story.
However this title is one of the few Disney Titles outside of the prestigious Platinum / Diamond / Signature Collections that truly could be re-released and still stand tall with movies such as Snow White, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King...
Other titles released with such vigor were , Atlantis the lost empire, Dinosaur, and Tarzan.... these are the only offset canon features who were ever treated to an edition which was equal or even greater to one of the prestigious lines we have seen over the year.
If you are looking for a copy of the emperors new groove this ultimate groove edition is just what you need, its in a beautiful gold case and houses 2 dvds loaded with features you will not find on any other dvd or blu ray. this set is a one of a kind experience that you will want to give a chance too.
Energetic animation is topped off by pitch perfect voice work from the cast, with Patrick Warburton stealing the show as Kronk (no wonder the guy got his own spin-off film.) And the great thing about the humor is that it's not juvenile and grating for adults, yet it's high energy enough for kids to enjoy even if some of the jokes are too meta for the really little ones.
To repeat the warning: "beware the groove!" Groo-oo-ooove... Never have I laughed so hard during an animated Disney flick. As I've now introduced this movie to so very man people, I had the opportunity of being there for my blood-sister to turn to me and ask, "I don't like this guy. Am I suppose to like this character?"
"No, no you're not. Not at all!"
For fun and adventure, my brother Tristan developed the "Emperor's New Groove Drinking Game." Every time you hear the words "Kuzco" or "llama," everyone watching takes a shot. I had to add this, as Disney accidentally left this information out. Everything else has been included.
Great for laughs. I watch it at least once a year!
fox and the hound, the black cauldron (pg rating), hercules, mulan, the rescures, robin hood(cartoon), the rescurers down under, the hunch back of nortre dame, lilo&stitch and last is this one the emperors new groove. these are all great films and are worth watching
