Kronk’s New Groove (2005)

Kronk feels he can’t impress his dad, and is forced to realise that the true riches in life are your friends and being true to yourself.

I remember adoring this film when it was first released. I think it might also have been one of the first films I watched on DVD as well. Furthermore, Disney sequels have a tendency for being a bit ‘meh’ but I remembered this one being one of the better ones.

While not laugh-a-minute, its certainly very fun all the same. It still has the sparkle of the original movie, and manages to sidestep the tropes of being akin to a TV movie or a Saturday morning cartoon special. Maybe my nostalgia goggles are on full-throttle when watching this film but all the same, perhaps at this point nearly ten years after the fact, I am too old for this film. Or even this sequel?

Usually in Disney sequels, there tends to be a massive personality change in characters. This is not the case in this instance. Kronk is still the same loveable buffoon as he was in the previous movie,  and if you want to enjoy this film then go in with an open mind and expect little plot development but full-on fun.

MY RATING: *** / *****
