The Emperor’s New Groove (2000) is a comedic animated fantasy co-written and directed by Mark Dindal about Emperor Kuzco (David Spade), a selfish despotic ruler who gets turned into a llama by an aggrieved advisor, Yzma (Eartha Kitt), and learns how to be kind with the help of a peasant, Pacha (John Goodman).
Everyone has kindness in them, but some need help showing it to others.
Pacha: “I think we got off on the wrong foot here.”
Pacha: “I just think, if you really thought about it, you’d decide to build your home on a different hilltop.”
Kuzco: “And why would I do that?”
Pacha: “Because deep down, I think you realize that you’re forcing an entire village out of their homes just for you.”
Kuzco: “And that’s… bad?”
Pacha: “Well, yeah. Nobody’s that heartless.”
