The Emperor's New Groove

Corrected entry: In the dinner scene, Kronk is handing out a drink to Kuzco on a platter. The one with the llama potion is farthest away from the other two (which are close together). But when Yzma tells her sidekick to give the emperor his drink (after Kronk saves the Spinach Puffs), all of them are evenly spaced.

Correction: It moves because he puts it down quickly to go save his Spinach puffs.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Kuzco, Yzma, and Kronk are having dinner. Kronk is about to give Kuzco his drink (which, along with the other two drinks, is on a circular platter), then the emperor tells him that something's burning. In the next shot, The drinks disappear (Kronk isn't holding them), and then reappear several shots later.

Correction: It's because he puts the tray down to save the Spinach puffs.

Corrected entry: When the theme song guy comes out of the cake he drops to the floor and throws back his microphone, it lands on the floor. In the next shot he has it back again.

Correction: Actually the theme song guy throws the microphone in the air with his left hand and then catches it with his right hand. If you listen really close, you can hear him catch it.

Corrected entry: When Kuzco is looking at the girls to find a suiter to marry, when he looks at the last girl he speaks to, from the front, she has her hair down, but when it then shows a shot from behind, her hair is tied back.

Correction: The last girl Kuzco speaks to still has her hair down. The girl who had her hair tied was next to her, as seen in the first shot of all the bachelorretes

Corrected entry: Pacha's shirt is always brown when Pacha has his poncho on, but it is always white when he does not.

Correction: Pacha's shirt is white throughout the movie. The brown piece of clothing that is sticking out of his poncho are his shorts.

Corrected entry: When Yzma is searching for Kuzko at Pacha's house and talking to Pacha's wife, who is pregnant, she drops something on the floor and Pacha's wife picks it up. It takes her a long time to do this because she looks almost ready to deliver her baby. Less than a minute later, when Pacha's wife sees Pacha at the kitchen window, she excuses herself and rushes over to the window. A woman as pregnant as she is could not move that fast.


Correction: Baloney. My wife has been "that pregnant" thrice and, while it's not comfortable, she was always able to move pretty much as swiftly as she needed/wanted to.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Yzma and Kronk are preparing to get rid of Emperor Kuzco, Yzma mentions that no-one but her, Kronk, and the Emperor know that she was fired. In the scene where she is being let go, there is a servant writing out a pink slip, he obviously knows that Yzma was fired too. (00:07:21)

Correction: I believe she meant to say that the only LIVING persons knowing about her being fired, was herself, Kronk and Cuzco. If she was able to kill the emperor (try, at least), killing the servant probably wouldn't be too hard.

Or the servant wasn't that important.

The Emperor's New Groove mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Pacha and Kuzco are drying off after they fall over the waterfall, the slot for the wearer's head in the center of Pacha's poncho is clearly visible when Kuzco takes it and uses it to dry himself off. Following the shot change between when Kuzco throws it and when it lands on the fire Pacha is trying to light, the poncho becomes just a solid green square towel with no hole for the wearer to put his head through, which is easy to see when Pacha hangs it backup on another tree. (00:32:07)

More trivia for The Emperor's New Groove

Question: All of the vials that Yzma has are labeled, but how? They can't be inside the vale because they would be wet and Yzma couldn't have flipped the label up like she did in a scene, yet...there is nothing attaching the label to the vial. how is it attached?

Answer: It is probably attached with the equivalent of a piece of Scotch tape rolled over itself; I'm sure you've done that before. It wouldn't be visible to the naked eye, and Yzma would be able to flip the label up.
