Synopsis

In 1997, Sting was asked by the Walt Disney Company to write the music for a new animated feature called Kingdom of the Sun; to be directed by Roger Allers, on the heels of his huge hit, The Lion King. Sting agreed, on the condition that his wife, Trudie Styler, could document the Disney mode of production. With unprecedented access to the notoriously sheltered animation studio, this film follows the making of Kingdom of the Sun - eventually released as The Emperor's New Groove - recounting the gruelling five-year schedule that consumed two directors, three titles, six songs, millions of animation cels and countless egos.
