Is groove just another term for force? And is Kylo Ren just a darker, more sexualised version of the bratty cartoon character Kuzco from the 2000 Disney masterpiece The Emperor’s New Groove?
The artist @bb_kate_art took to twitter to make the case for why the next instalment of the Star Wars franchise should look to Disneyâs classic Inca drama for inspiration. There are, as @bb_kate_art points out, already many parallels between the two:
Can Episode IX please just be exactly like the Emperorâs New Groove, with Hux as Yzma, Kylo as Kuzco, and Rey as Pacha?

Just look how similar Pacha and Rey look in these shots:Â
Most obvious are the similarities between villain Kylo Ren, and the emperor-turned-llama Kuzco. Both are entitled, vain bad boys with luscious, dark hair and a soft core. And if Kylo Ren was a cartoon character, couldnât he also be convincingly voiced by actor David Spade?
These side-by-side shots of Kylo and Kuzco deserve an award.Â
The resemblance between Hux and Yzma is frankly uncanny.Â
Pinging J. J. Abrams for his thoughts.Â
