Disney's 55th animated feature, Zootopia, makes your wildest dreams come true with a mammal metropolis featuring a small town bunny named Judy Hopps, a cunning fox named Nick Wilde and a hilarious slow-moving sloth employee at the DMV.
I really didn't know what to expect going into the movie, but I was pleasantly surprised. Seeing as my secret ambition is to be a detective, the "whodunit" nature of the plot had me thrilled. The film is filled with hilarious scenes, plenty of slapstick comedy and even some friendly jokes Disney itself. In addition, adults can appreciate the film noir feel, as well as some clever pop culture references. I myself didn't even see the twist at the end coming. So much for my detective skills!
The message behind the movie is simple enough - believe in yourself and don't judge others by how they look. Zootopia delivers it so eloquently and in a sophistocated way without compromising all the fun. It was so refreshing to see a new take on the issues discussed and presented in such an entertaining way. My whole family loved it and could easily watch it again. Two paws up!
