Snuff Out The Light-Unreleased song from The Emperor’s New Groove
A long time ago, the Emperor’s New Groove was called “Empire Of The Sun”. I don’t know how vastly different the story was from the final (probably a lot). Music was also made but never appeared in the movie. Thankfully, it did have a life in the official soundtrack.
This is probably one of my fave villain songs from any Disney movie, but never animated! Ah, how I wish storyboards from that segment could see the light of day…one day.
Since I got some good feedback on my post about writing characters of color (http://drinkmereadme.tumblr.com/post/18697000400/writing-characters-of-color), I thought that I’d expand on the topic a bit and delve into writing characters who differ from you in class. I’ll be doing another post later today or tomorrow about writing characters whose gender is different from your own. I have a lot of opinions on this subject, being an avid reader who is marginalised by her social status and gender. I often find myself frustrated with the way wealthy authors write poor characters, the way men write women, and the way women write men. So here goes.
