Epic Movie (Re)Watch #108 - The Road to El Dorado

(GIF originally posted by @dreamworksmoments)

Have I seen it before: Yes

Did I like it then: Yes.

Do I remember it: Yes.

Did I see it in theaters: No.

Format: DVD

1) Not only is this one of my favorite animated movies, it is one of my favorite movies period. I found it while scrolling through Cartoon Network or HBO Family or something and watched it every chance I could get. 12 year old me found it very edgy. The mild swearing, the cigars, the blasphemy, all of it was very enticing and that’s fed my love of the film since.

2) Elton John & Tim Rice, the songwriting duo behind The Lion King, re-teamed for this film and churned out a nice set of songs. But the strange thing is if you listen to the soundtrack most of the songs are recorded differently than how they appear in the film. The one exception I think is “Someday Out of the Blue” which plays during the end credits. Still, they songs add the fun and energetic flavor to the film. The opening song in particular, “El Dorado,” does a nice job of setting up the mythology we need to get the movie started in a very short amount of time.

3) If you’re a fan of voice over work, you’ll recognize Jim Cummings as Cortez.

Cummings is one of the most prolific and talented voice over artists out there. It would be impossible to list everything he’s done, but his most notable work has been as Darkwing Duck, Winnie the Pooh & Tigger too, Hondo on "Star Wars: The Clone Wars”, Razoul in Aladdin, and Ray the firefly in The Princess and the Frog. It’s fun knowing what he sounds like because not only do you hear him in Cortez, but you also pick up the random nameless characters he plays too with his different voices.

4) The heart of the film, the thing that makes it great: Miguel & Tulio.

Originally posted by roadtoeldorado

The bromance between Miguel & Tulio is what makes this film work as well as it does, it’s what makes it fun! Kenneth Branagh and Kevin Kline voice the pair respectively, and their chemistry is off the charts. It doesn’t hurt that the pair actually got to record their performances with each other, a rarity in animation (although Pixar has done it with Monsters Inc for John Goodman and Billy Crystal).

Their relationship and roles are clear from the start, they balance each other out. Tulio is mildly selfish with a great hunger for gold and an ability to think things through. Miguel’s heart is bigger than their brain, being the dreamer/softie of the group (wanting the map to El Dorado, saving Altivo the horse when he almost drowns, etc.). And they play off each other beautifully.

5) 12 year old me was very fascinated with the slight profanities this film had.

Tulio [when he’s about to roll his dice]: “Come on baby, papa needs that crappy map.”

I thought crap was a real swear when I was twelve. I didn’t lose my innocence until thirteen.

6) Chekov’s Fake Fight.

The fight comes into play later in the film too, but is a showcase mainly for the wonderful banter between Miguel & Tulio and - therefore - the excellent writing of screenwriters of Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio. These guys were my favorite screenwriters when I was twelve, and can you blame me? Their resume consisted of: Aladdin, The Mask of Zorro, Shrek, The Road to El Dorado, every Pirates of the Caribbean film, Treasure Planet, and both National Treasure films. They have a strong penchant for strong dialogue too. Consider the exchange above, and also this:

Miguel: “You fight like my sister.”

Tulio: “I’ve FOUGHT your sister! That’s a compliment!”

I love that.

7) According to IMDb:

The film shares several attributes of its namesake, the "Road” comedies made famous by Bob Hope and Bing Crosby during the 1940s (which helps explain anachronisms such as shared language, pop culture references and lack of historical accuracy).

I just thought that was a fun share.

8) God, I love the banter between these two.

[Tulio & Miguel jump into barrels of water in a chase scene but can’t escape because the barrels are being loaded onto a ship]

Tulio: “What’s happening here?”

Miguel: “We’re both in barrels. That’s the extent of my knowledge.”

9) Even the bad guys have great dialogue!

Cortes (upon discovering Miguel & Tulio on his ship): “My crew was as carefully chosen as the disciples of Christ.”

10) I’m just going to let you know now, so many of my notes here are just quotes from the film I love.

Miguel [giddily, after Cortes tell the pair they will be enslaved in Cuba for being stow aways]: “Alright! Cuba!”

11) For example, another quote:

Miguel: Yes, that’s it Altivo. Find the pry bar!

Tulio: Yes, “find the pry bar”. He doesn’t understand “pry bar”! He’s a dumb horse, there’s no way he could understand…

[Altivo drops keys into the brig]

Tulio: Well… it’s NOT a pry bar.

12) The Trail We Blaze

Originally posted by insidealosershead

Animated films are usually short so as to be not too time consuming. It can take years to make 80 minutes of animation. This film has a nice device of compacting what could be very long scenes into neat little montages with the use of a song. We still get Tulio & Miguel’s fun journey through the jungles to find El Dorado, but it’s done in three and a half minutes to a fun Elton John tune. It keep the energy, the adventure, but doesn’t waste the time of the animators or the audience.

13) Immediately Tulio and Chel have great chemistry as they play “pass the golden idol” together!

14) El Dorado.

(GIF originally posted by @dreamworksmoments)

Immediately upon entering the city the audience is filled with a sense of wonder, achieved through gorgeous animation and also Hans Zimmer’s subtle music which adds for extra bone tingling. You marvel at it with Tulio and Miguel, and you understand how it is such a mythical place.

15) Edward James Olmos does some great voice over work as Chief Tannabok.

Originally posted by roadtoeldorado

I’ve never seen “Battlestar Galactica” so I am mostly familiar with Olmos from his work in Blade Runner, Stand & Deliver, and even “Agents of SHIELD”. I think he shows off a nice amount of range with this addition to his resume. Chief Tannabok is not an angry man. He is kind, soft, gentle, patient, but also you can tell that he’s kinda sad. You don’t HEAR Olmos, you hear the chief and that makes him an excellent addition to the cast.

16) And of course our big bad, Tzekel-Kan

Originally posted by roadtoeldorado

Tzekel-Kan is the opposite of Chief Tannabok. He is angry, an overlord of sorts. He wants blood because he believes it is what’s needed. He believes people are wicked and evil just for enjoying life and being kind, and it is his righteous duty to smite them. He pisses me off way more now than he did when I was twelve.

17) This whole bit with the volcano! Miguel goes too far and says that the gods should not be questioned or else they will be forced to release their awful wrath…but Tzekel-Kan wants to see that. Only they’re not gods! So he and Tulio turn away to try and figure it out and we get this…

There’s an old addage in writing: “A coincidence to get a character out of trouble is lazy.” However in this case I’m 100% okay with that because it’s just funny as hell.

18) How many of us have used this GIF?

19) Chel.

Originally posted by specta-a

Chel is a nice way of making the duo a trio. Voiced wonderfully by Rosie Perez, she is just as crafty and cunning as Tulio (if not more so) but also understand Miguel’s sense of adventure. The pair balance each other out already, bit if Miguel acts too dreamer-y or Tulio is too gold hungry they throw each other out of whack (as this film shows). Chel helps stabilize them by film’s end and is a lot of fun to watch. Also, bonus points for being an animated female character with a body that is physically possible.


Chel [on why she wants a life of adventure]: “You’ve got your reasons…and I’ve got mine. Let’s not make this personal, okay?”


21) So Chel needs to prove to Tulio and Miguel she’s a good con artist…

[Chel shows the pair the dice she stole from Tulio]

Tulio: “How did you get those?”

Miguel: “Where was she keeping them?”

I’m with Miguel, that’s the more important question.

22) Oh Miguel…

23) It’s Tough to be a God.

Originally posted by borzotro

The only time this film is a traditional musical (ie: the characters themselves break into song & dance), and considering Kevin Kline’s and Kenneth Branagh’s singing here that might not be the worst thing. The interesting thing is that their version doesn’t even appear on the soundtrack. Instead we get a duet with Elton John and Randy Newman.

24) I need to remember this excuse.

Tulio [trying to convince Tzekel-Kan not to make a human sacrifice to the gods/them]: “The stars are not in position for this tribute.”

Miguel: “Like he said…”

(GIF source unknown [if this is your GIF please let me know].)

Originally posted by pantyception

25) I don’t identify totally with Miguel or totally with Tulio, but with parts of them. Like I identify with Tulio being kind of the dreamer who thinks things are possible, but this is a very me thing to say:

Tulio [after Miguel tells him he worries too much]: “No, I worry just the right amount! You can never worry too much!”

Same, Tulio. Same.

26) Remember how I said this movie was edgy to 12 year old me. Well it features a scene where Chel tries to seduce Tulio. Like, more than wanting a kiss. But like she shows off her shoulders for a back massage, they’re later found on the ground together all disheveled, it’s not even very subtle when you know what’s going on. Twelve year old me was very innocent.

27) I love their banter.

Miguel [when he and Tulio end up in a big arena to play ball for the locals]: “Well don’t blame me!”

(GIF source unknown [if this is your GIF please let me know].)

28) The ball game is a lot of fun to watch, if for no other reason then Chel on the sidelines.

Chel: “Foul! That was a foul!”

And then it’s her idea to use the armadillo as a ball replacement to cheat.

29) So earlier in the film we got this line from Miguel:

(GIF source unknown [if this is your GIF please let me know].)

And then later in the film Miguel tries to convince Chief Tannabok that the boat they are using to leave isn’t good enough (because Miguel wants to stay) when in fact it’s perfect. When Miguel admits his mistake, we got this line from the chief.

Chief: “Hey, to err is human.”

Miguel goes to get in the boat, but then he looks over his shoulder at the chief and the chief looks at him knowingly. And they don’t say anything else about it.

I love that. I love that the chief isn’t an idiot, but he knows. He knows and he knows it’s good for his people and he knows Miguel is a good guy and…I just love it!

30) I love little things like this.

[A giant stone jaguar, controlled by Tzekel-Kan, attacks the city. It grabs a warrior, ruffs him up A LOT, then lets him fall to the ground.]

Warrior [patting himself down]: “I’m okay!!!”

[Jaguar steps on warrior]

Warrior [from under Jaguar’s foot]: “I’m still okay!”

31) Remember how I talked about Chekov’s Fake Fight?

Tzekel-Kan [when he was Miguel & Tulio cornered]: “I know what you are and I know what you are not. And you are not GODS!”

Tulio [after a beat]: “Y-you’re not a god!?”

The pair then continue to have a very real argument where they say some pretty cold things to each other…

Tulio: “You’re buying your own con!”

Miguel: “At least I’m not DATING mine!”

But it has the same effect. Tzekel-Kan is distracted, enjoying their fighting, and the audience is as surprised as he is when the pair work in sync again and punch the guy out. It’s a nice way of playing the scene out.

32) Friends Never Say Goodbye. A very sad song that plays when it seems like Tulio and Miguel are going to take separate paths in life and are really mad at each other. It actually has some nice truths to it, and again is slightly different on the soundtrack. Elton John is backed up by the Backstreet Boys for the song on the album. I hope that didn’t ruin it for some of you.

33) The film ends with the citizens of El Dorado crashing a pillar into their gate so as to keep Cortes from finding the city, only it is falling too soon. So Chief Tannabok grabs some of the ropes and holds it back for a while. And this is probably REALLY mean of me and I apologize in advance but I just thought of this:

Originally posted by ignitetheliight

I’m so sorry.

34) According to IMDb:

A series of sequels featuring Miguel, Tulio, Chel, Altivo and even the armadillo going after other legends about gold was planned, similar to the Shrek (2001) series, but following the disappointing box-office results they were immediately canceled.

Originally posted by roadtoeldorado

While that would’ve been interesting I’m kinda glad this film just stands on its own. It’s a nice little gem that way.

I love this film, and think a lot of people out there will too. People don’t really talk about it these days except to talk about how no one talks about it. It’s a nice variation from standard Disney fare, the music is great, freaking Miguel & Tulio are just awesome, and it is just such an enjoyable/adventure filled film. I think you should all watch it now! It’s on Netflix if you have it. So go. Go follow that trail! (Too easy?)

Imagine #061

Imagine Nico trying to hold back his tears, while he watches ‘The Lion King’.
He tries his best not to cry, but some tears do fall when a really sad Simba appears on the screen and discovers his father’s dead body.
And as for Percy, he choses not to tease Nico for that incident because, really, who doesn’t cry watching The Lion King?

99 stars can't fill your sky | kiane

summary: Diane counts the stars while waiting for King to return.

pairings: kiane. (my fave coupling tbh)

Sidenote: why can’t i write anything happy or funny anymore yeesh


[what would you do, if I told you I loved you?]

Diane’s breathing is strangely uneven as she watches the stars.

She counts the glittering specks, wondering of they re infinite like King has told her, or if there really is a definite number tacked onto them like a price tag. Ban says there are exactly one hundred stars in the sky, he’s counted them all. {though she can afford to be a bit skeptical, he was half crocked the day he informed her so}

She breathes in, and out, steadying the rate and huffing as she got back to work.


Some stars are tightly knit together, in clusters, a firework seconds after imploding. Others are stretched apart like taffy, miles away from its sisters and brothers.

[from that first smile, on that very first day]


Elizabeth’s voice rings out from the bar questioningly. Diane has half a mind to answer her, losing track of the few stars she had numbered.


“Are you cold? Merlin-sama said she could warm you up, if you’d like?” She asks kindly. She’s too nice for her own good, of course, there’s a difference between nice and kind. Diane had yet to decipher which of the two Elizabeth was.

“No, that’s alright. Thanks anyway.” She responds monotonously. She is cold. It’s windy tonight, and the branches sway to the rhythm of the unsung breeze while her arms bite in retaliation to the cold. She doesn’t want to trouble anyone, not tonight. It’s been a long day of traveling, and still no sign of King.

Her brows furrow at the thought of the fairy king, he should be back by now, shouldn’t he? She wasn’t wrong to think that he should’ve returned…

[what would you say, if I say, if I told you I just knew?]


The stars blink in a silent answer. No, she isn’t silly for thinking that. He should be back, if he loved her, he’d be back-

Stop thinking like that, she chastises, you’re not the center of everything you know

-and she doesn’t feel like the center of everything, lately she’s been feeling rather…hollow.


She remembers, long ago, King, {not King, Harlequin, her Harlequin} telling her about the stars, stories that they’d paint in the sky and how each one was different and each one had a special tale to tell, if only you’d listen close enough.

She closes her eyes, and tries to listen, but she hears nothing, she hears no stories.


Harlequin says that stars are infinite, there are too many to count and each one belongs to her.

Stupid fairy boy, she thinks bitterly, you can’t promise me the stars.

But she recalls how much she believed him, how she’d absorbed every detail and every story like a thirsty historian and looked up at the stars and thought, those are mine, those are my stars…

[that somehow you’d change me in some special way]

The stars blur together, and she almost loses count.


she hears the commotion inside the Boar Hat, Hawk yelling at Captain to “sit still, dammit!” and she can almost hear Ban and King as well, fighting over who gets to use Chastiefol as a pillow that night.

And if she listens carefully, she can almost hear the soft whisper of him telling her goodnight and giving her Chastiefol, even though it was him who’d rightfully won it from Ban.

A smile graces her lips, she can barely feel the soft, squishy fabric of the boy’s sacred treasure under her hair, but she likes it, because it smells like flowers and something irrevocably him.

-then she opens her eyes, and there’s no pillow, no Ban and King, and no whisper of goodnight.

Just, her, Gideon, and the stars.


She remembers the story of a grizzly bear, getting thrown by its tail into the heavens by a god. She closes her eyes and imagines the same thing happening to Harlequin, the lazy grizzly. She imagines he’d fly away before any gods could catch him.


The lights in the Boar Hat go out, and she is truly alone. Not even Ban’s snores keep her company. {right, because he had to go and disappear along with King…}

Not that she’d miss Ban. She could certainly go without his company, and yet…

She shuts her eyes so tight, she can almost see stars of her own beneath her eyelids. She conjures up a playlist of Ban’s snores and lets them play in her head on constant repeat.

How sad was it, that it was hard to fall asleep without them?

[would you say, I was silly? A sentimental fool?]

She’s running out of stars. {she counted that one already, right? Right}

Fireflies buzz in her line of sight and she is distracted, again Can’t one girl count the stars in peace?

You can’t count something that’s infinite, an imaginary Harlequin teases inside her head. That’d be silly.

An imaginary Ban pops up too, just for the likes of teasing King. Kuh, don’t be stupid, King, there’s a hundred stars, you can count to a hundred, can’t you, Diane?

Of course she can! She returns to counting.


She’s tired of counting soon. The stars blend together into a cosmic cocktail and she can barely tell the difference between them and a lightning bug. Ooh, there’s one now! Pretty…


Are the stars really infinite? How could Harlequin have known that? Were the stars always infinite, or did they just start out as one, and grow bigger, and bigger until there were too many to count? Or have the stars just always been, as the earth and the trees…


“I promise to always love you,” his empty promise rings through her ears as she desperately counts the stars. Some promise, he’s really a sham, isn’t he? He doesn’t love her, he probably never did…


She stops short, tears blurring her vision to the point of blindness. She wipes them furiously, not wanting to lose count of the stars she had already numbered.

99 stars, just two more, I have to prove Ban wrong…

Every time her eyes hit a star, she’ll reprimand herself, I already counted that one…

Is that it? She looks up at the sky, and it seems like thousands, but the logic says 99

“99 stars?” She asks the heavens, “that can’t be it – that can’t be all…”

The heavens smile down and say nothing.

“You told me there were infinite stars,” she sniffs, “you told me you’d love me forever…” lieslieslies he HATES you-

“Harlequin,” she cries, “please come back…” and her eyes drift shut, slow as dripping syrup. “Please come back…before I forget you again…”

…and the missing 100th star fades into the day, and she loses herself to an unwanted slumber.
