  • Theatrical release: December 15, 2000.
  • THE EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE is the 39th full-length animated feature from Walt Disney Pictures.
  • THE EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE originally started as a serious, epic project entitled "Kingdom of the Sun," based on pre-Colombian legends and featuring a full score by Sting.

  • For research, the film's creative team traveled to Peru to observe the art and architecture of the ancient Incas.
  • Actors whose characters were cut out of the film include Harvey Fierstein, Carla Gugino, and Owen Wilson.
  • Sting and David Hartley were nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Original Song--Motion Picture for "My Funny Friend and Me."
