Zootropolis *SPOILER ALERT* Review


Directors: Byron Howard, Rich Moore, Jared Bush.

Voiced by: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, Jenny Slate.

Disney tackling moral issues yet again this time being prejudice and stereotyping racism. Seriously! You have predators and prey living together in supposed perfect harmony being Zootropolis. However, typically of Disney there is always a sense of moral reality.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. It's not meant to sound negative. But the whole "other bunny's can call me 'cute' but it's not right when other..." Make what you will of it. I really enjoyed it even though it doesn't have that many laugh out loud moments, it is funny and entertaining. The movie jokes especially.

You can't help but love the characters, it's Disney. There's emotional investment, there's struggle and heartbreak topped off with a happy ending with everyone singing and dancing. This one being a sleuth movie. Judy Hopps, the bunny and Nick the Fox work so well together and the other characters that pop up are brilliant. Especially the Godfather parody and Flash, the Sloth.

Not sure it's entirely for kids, I mean, I know Disney aim for the wider audience but again, some of the jokes, only the grown ups will get. But it's colourful, imaginative and light hearted entertaining but with that moral code in place. I would love to see these two work a sequel!
