What Values Did You Learn From the Film?

If there is a value that we should learn from the film, it’s that we should be kind. Emperor Kuzco is a selfish person that experienced a life-changing event in his life. 

His development is not something that happened in an instant. Being exposed to other people’s struggles helped him to be more understanding and kinder to other people.

The Emperor’s New Groove is a story about how love can change anyone. It tells us that no one is unchangeable if we only try to set our judgments aside and show our love and care to anyone.
