Emperor’s New Groove 2, The: Kronk’s New Groove (2005)

Having left Yzma’s employ, Kronk is happy in his new life but news of a visit from his Papi sends shockwaves into his happiness.


A big, pleasant surprise, this Disney direct-to-DVD sequel is not horrifically awful in any way. It is generally nicely animated, has decent songs, keeps moving quickly and is almost always lots of fun. While the Kronk-loses-the-girl half is not quite as good as the Kronk-loses-the-house half, it’s still entertaining and, as a whole, this is easily recommended as a cheap Disney DVD that doesn’t qualify as torture in the developed world. Note: this was John Fiedler’s last film.

This movie contains mild nudity.
