One of the challenges we’ve faced is finding an animated film that Jena hasn’t seen. While we can toss just about anything else in front of her, she’s watched almost everything by Disney. What a delight it was, then when we discovered that she had never seen one of the most underrated Disney films of all time, The Emperor’s New Groove! She had seen the straight to video sequel but not the hilarious original. We have managed to rectify that situation so sit back and enjoy our conversation about a movie that is not nearly as Disney as you might expect.
