Disney's Zootopia is an animated film with a story that resonates with a lot of social issues that are happening in the world today,...you add these lovable characters that we care about that suffer some of the real life scenarios like prejudice, gender bias, and corruption. A story that we can identify with on a much deeper level. The struggle of a female rabbit Judy Hobbs, who as a youngster is inspired to be a police officer, though in her world this job is usually dominated by much larger aggressive animals who happen to be male. When she graduates from the Academy, and joins the police force, she finds being the first female bunny on the force does not make her popular. She is given traffic ticket duty. Judy makes a decision to prove herself & in the process meets a sly fox named Nick Wilde who takes advantage of her naive nature. Once this happens once, she learns a trick or two & turns it on Nick which makes him her ally. They work together to solve the mysteries in the case she is chasing. Judy begins to see the world in a dark light when things don't work out as she planned plus Nick's jaded past discourages her positive outlook on the world. The police force turns against her, and this humiliation sends her back to the farm. Nick realizes that he has grown to care about this bunny, and gets her to believe in herself again...and helps her crack a case that takes the audience on a great mystery that has many twists and turns. A great film, one of the best animated film Disney has made. It has a positive message that resonates even after you left the theater. An animated film that makes you think after you leave the theater is definitely a great film.
This film completely exceeded my expectations. Even though I was very exited for this film, I thought it was going to just be a buddy cop movie with anthropomorphic animals, but it's much more. First, the animation. What can I say? It looks amazing. The studio did a wonderful job as always. The fur textures look great. I also like the attention to detail with the realistic animal movements. The two leads, Judy and Nick, are both lovable and sympathetic. Judy is very determined and energetic, while Nick is likeable cynic. The relationship between them is well done, too. The world of Zootopia looks amazing and it's very creative. I liked seeing the different types of animals. The story is interesting and well-written. The one element that makes this movie great is the themes about racial discrimination and stereotypes and the way they execute it. I honestly didn't expect the film to go into topics like this. It's done in a very clever and interesting way. I love it because it ties into what's happening in the world today, and this film can really connect with some people. They use the classifications of predator and prey as metaphors for racism, and I think that's very clever. It's also a good way to introduce children to these injustices and teach them about how wrong they are. There are also good dramatic scenes, as well as funny moments. I was actually surprised that the film has a nearly perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, as most Disney films nowadays only make it up to 89%, but I think it deserves its score. I suppose the only issues I have with the film is that I wanted to see more of Zootopia. I also was disappointed that the villain was pretty predictable, similar to Big Hero 6 and Frozen. Despite those small issues, I think Zootopia is brilliant. It's smart, fun, engaging, and can teach children about discrimination. It's another success for Walt Disney Animation Studios, one of their best works, and I hope they keep up the good work.
Disney's Zootopia portrays the issue of discrimination to younger audiences with love able characters, humor, heart. Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman, who play the two main characters, show great chemistry, they show heart, humor and dedication for their cause. Even the side characters in the movie made the experience even better. The extra characters side comments were even funny. Their are so many references that adult viewers would appreciate. Though at times the movie did have slow points, it picked right back up again. Beside the characters the city of Zootopia was so immersive, yet again Disney made an another impressive setting that brings audience members into a new world. Disney yet again made another Oscar worthy movie.
Zootopia is the kind of kids movie that when you watch, you forget it is a kids movie. The filmmakers and writers did an excellent job incorporating prejudice into the movie without taking away from the kids enjoyment of it. The movie is surprisingly political, but that just makes it all the more interesting.
