The Emperor's New Groove began life as the much more serious in tone and epic in scope Kingdom Of The Sun. Originally, the music was done by Sting, and Roger Allers was the director. Sort of a Prince and the Pauper story at first, Allers just could not bring the story to life.
To breath new life into the project, Disney execs hired Mark Dindal, who brought in the comic element. This resulted in a very uneven production... half light and half dark. In the summer 1998, under a time crunch for a 2000 release date, Allers was forced off the film. Dindal retooled the film, dropped the Sting songs, and retitled the film.
