As she struggles to fight the doubts and mocks from the other animals, she meets a sly and slick fox (Jason Bateman) to uncover a strange mystery in Zootopia.
Movie Review: Walt Disney Pictures, you all have did it right again with this one! Since their major success and last film, Inside Out, they have crafted another great story that explores deeper and mature themes, such as racial stereotypes, gender stereotypes and even not to do drugs, but definitely in a more child-friendly way. The illustration of real life problems is brilliant and hilarious, which can also allow parents to discuss with the kids about. To top that off, I actually think that adults might enjoy the movie better than the children, as they may relate to these implications of how society is in real life. I loved the realistic aspect of Zootopia, even for an animated 3D film, this movie makes plenty of references from our daily lives. Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) was just an all-rounder lovable and charismatic character, and I was so hooked on to her character and her ambition right as the movie begins. I really felt a lot of sympathy and empathy for most of the characters in the film, which really did gave that emotional investment that I was hoping for, it was really heartfelt. It’s a movie that normally we adolescents or adults, can think deeply about, as we do have ambitions and dreams of our own, and sometimes being treated differently in our society, but at the same time the film still wants us to have a happy and great time, giving constant top-notch hilarious moments. And yes, the grand highlight of the movie, the awesome SLOTHS! 😀 I wouldn’t give away what makes them great, but they have one of the funniest moments in Disney movie history, I love ’em! ❤ Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), the fox was also an amazing character that you really start to see his character grow when you discover about his roots and past. I thought J.K Simmons was the perfect voice for Mayor Lionheart, for his great intimidating and dominant voice that fits just right for being the a lion mayor. The animation in this film was fantastic, and I loved the great detail it had. The music is always as great as it is in Disney films, great job by Michael Giacchino!
