Description by Wikipedia

The Road to El Dorado is a 2000 American animated adventure comedy film directed by Eric "Bibo" Bergeron and Don Paul, with additional sequences by Will Finn and David Silverman, starring Kevin Kline, Kenneth Branagh, and Rosie Pérez, and produced by DreamWorks Animation. The soundtrack features songs by Elton John and Tim Rice, as well as composers Hans Zimmer and John Powell.

The movie begins in 16th-century Spain, and tells of two swindlers named Tulio and Miguel who, when playing dice, win a map that supposedly shows the location of El Dorado, the legendary city of gold in the New World. However, when they are caught using loaded dice, the attempt to escape, only has them to end up as stowaways on Hernán Cortés' fleet to conquer the New World. They are found out, but manage to escape in a boat with Cortés' prize war horse and eventually discover the hidden city of El Dorado, where they are mistaken for gods.

The Road to El Dorado received mixed reviews from critics and grossed $76.4 million worldwide on a $95 million budget, becoming DreamWorks Animation's first box office bomb. However, the film has managed to gain a "cult classic" status online over the years.
