Casting Director Sandra Mcdaniel said she was very excited to be working with Lautner.

“It’s not easy to find an A-list actor who bears this strong of a resemblance to an Alpaca, but we hit the jackpot with Lautner. The studio has had some worries about his performance in the scenes where Kuzco is still human and hasn’t yet been magically turned into a Llama, but I have my eyes on a very talented makeup artist that should put those fears to rest.”

Some additional mock ups from the Casting department:

We for one can’t wait for his performance and for shooting to get underway. And may we say….
