Pacha

While Harald Siepermann was still working on the movie Tarzan, simultaneously he was involved in another production at Walt Disney Feature Animation called Kingdom of the Sun, under the direction of Roger Allers.

The story was about a spoiled and selfish prince named Manco who meets Pacha, a sixteen year old llama herder, who looks exactly like him. To avoid his duty as royalty, Manco switch places with Pacha.

During the development the story and its characters underwent drastic changes. Eventually the movie was released in 2000 under the title The Emperor’s New Groove.

In addition to the character Yzma and the llamas, Harald also made designs for Pacha, that during that time in production looked completely different than the final version that was voiced by John Goodman.

Here are some of Harald Siepermann’s Pacha designs.
