Pencil Tests

Rough animation at its finest

310 notes

Here’s a song from “Kingdom of the Sun”, the film that was ultimately retooled to become “The Emperor’s New Groove.” The film was originally a full-on musical with songs by Sting. The clip features an early version of Yzma (originally animated by Andreas Deja) singing a catchy tune with some interesting visuals. There’s some interesting behind the scenes footage interspersed with some pencil test footage of the original scene.

This clip is an excerpt from the documentary on the film, “Sweatbox”, which has been under lock and key for some time and was recently leaked online.
