I don’t know whether it’s because of or despite the production being a total mess, but what started out as the musical epic Kingdom of the Sun turned into a buddy comedy, and came out incredibly sweet and weird in equal measure. The story of a bratty prince who gets transformed into a llama and has to partner with a farmer to get his kingdom back from a witch is the cult film in Disney Animation Studios’ modern filmography. It’s past the Second Golden Age but before they started aggressively moving into CG, but tonally it’s an incredibly charming movie that has a nice story about friendship while also having Patrick Warburton voicing a character who can talk to squirrels. – Matt Goldberg
