Kronk, now chef and Head Delivery Boy of Mudka's Meat Hut, is fretting over the upcoming visit of his father. Kronk's father always disapproved of young Kronk's culinary interests and wished that Kronk instead would settle down with a wife and a large house on a hill.

Obviously not as good as its predecessor, but I had a fun time with 'Kronk’s New Groove'. Like with 'The Emperor’s New Groove', all the goodness comes with the humour which is again amusing. David Spade (Kuzco), who only appears for short cameos here, is definitely missed but Patrick Warburton (Kronk) does a respectable job at leading this sequel. The premise isn't as memorable as the 2000 production's, with them deciding to split a few flashback stories across the relatively short run time. I'm not usually a fan of doing that (see: 'Tarzan & Jane'), but Elliot M. Bour, Saul Andrew Blinkoff & co. do well to keep things interesting. The format probably works better for these films due to them not taking themselves too seriously; which is a positive. It's nice to hear the return of Warburton, Spade, John Goodman (Pacha) and others - I'm likely to enjoy a follow-up film more if the same cast remain, changes almost always end up in failure. Tracey Ullman is one of a couple newcomers to this, she's alright as Miss Birdwell. Sure, this isn't something that needed to be made. However, it is a sequel that is actually fairly entertaining - which isn't always the case, especially with Disney's animated films. Worth a watch.
