This Crazy 'Emperor's New Groove' Fan Theory Is Pretty F*cking Creepy
If you thought “The Emperor's New Groove” was just a cute movie about David Spade turning into a llama and then getting into wacky shenanigans, think again. Straight-up murders and stuff happen in this movie, and it's beyond messed up.
After Spade's character, Kuzco, gets turned into a llama, he walks through the forest and sees a fly goes right by him. He then watches as the fly gets caught in a spider web and begins to plead for its life.
The cries go unanswered, and it is eventually eaten by a vicious arachnid while still yelling, “HELP ME! HELP ME!”
Kuzco calls the experience the “freakiest thing [he's] ever seen.”
Whoa. Ew. WTF, DISNEY?!
This theory isn't totally out of the realm of possibility within the "Emperor's New Groove"-verse.
First off, in addition to Kuzco, one of the guards turns into a cow and Yzma turns into a cat during the movie. One more person turning into a non-person is not a crazy thought.
Also, THE FLY SCREAMS PERFECTLY AND WITH A TON OF EMOTION!
No other animal speaks perfectly in the movie unless it was once a human.
Some Redditors have even gone as far as to say the whole sequence is an homage to “The Fly.” WTF, Disney?
