Disney Channel has given the go-ahead to a cartoon series based on the 2000 theatrical release The Emperor’s New Groove. The kids’ cable network has ordered 21 episodes of Emperor’s New Skool for 2006. Groove has performed well on Disney Channel in the past; an Aug. 21 airing was tops in its time period among kids and households. The TV series transplants the main characters from Groove into a new setting: the Incan public school system. Deposed emperor Kuzco must now pass all of his classes and foil the scheming partnership of Yzma and Kronk to reclaim his throne. Casting has not yet been announced. The film featured the voices of David Spade, John Goodman and Eartha Kitt.
