The Emperor's New Groove / Kronk's New Groove (Blu-ray)
13 June 2013
Excerpt: Disney has two tiers of animated releases: the big fanfare flagships of the Disney catalog ( Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs , The Lion King , Toy Story ), and the lesser films not as universally respected ( The Rescuers , Oliver and Company , The Hunchback of Notre Dame ). Many of these second tier offerings are now getting double feature releases, including The Emperor's New Groove and its DTV sequel, Kronk's New Groove .
Conclusion: It's a crying shame that this Blu-ray release doesn't include all of the special feature content that it should include from other DVD releases. There's really no excuse for it, but this is the nature of these 2-movie collections. Honestly, I'd rather have a single movie release and all its extras rather than its insipid sequel. That said, Disney has done another great job technically with one of their most underrated films.

Conclusion: The main attraction of this 2 Movie Collection, the Blu-ray shared by Lilo & Stitch and its official sequel, delivers superb feature presentations and nothing else. You expect a film's newest release to be, if not necessarily complete and definitive, then at least its best edition to date. In terms of picture and sound, this set easily is. In terms of bonus features, though, it's not even close to what the original film's 2-Disc Big Wave Edition offers.
Conclusion: The Emperor's New Groove is one of Disney's most enjoyable animated films of modern times. Kronk's New Groove is among the more tolerable of the studio's direct-to-video sequels. Each film is presented on Blu-ray with outstanding picture and sound. That should make this a no-brainer recommendation for animation fans, Disney collectors, and plain old movie buffs. Alas, the staggering void of bonus features is sure to give some prospective buyers pause.
Excerpt: Geez! Disney sure has been on a tear recently. With this latest stack of stuff, every theatrically released Disney animated feature since the turn of the century has gotten a Blu-ray spin-'n'-polish. Heck, by the time the year's out, we'll be a few titles shy of having high-def releases for every Disney animated feature from the past four decades . I know I just spent a whole paragraph chanting "Disney! Disney! Disney!
The Emperor's New Groove / Kronk's New Groove Blu-ray Review
3 June 2013
Summary: Disney is well aware of the appeal and reach of its catalog, down to the best and worst films in its canon. Titles like Cinderella and Peter Pan arrive separately and to great fanfare, while other titles shuffle onto shelves en masse, sans the red-carpet treatment afforded their Platinum and Diamond Edition brethren.
