Zootopia: Movie Review

by Sheryl Wall

Special coupon for Dinuba Platinum Theatre at the end of this review.

Disney's Zootopia is set in a time where animals have evolved into animals that live more like humans do. The predators and the prey can also live side by side. Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) lives in a small town and has dreams of becoming the first rabbit police officer. Her family strongly discourages her dreams, but she does not give up.

She ends up moving to the big city, Zootopia, where she makes her dream come true. However, it turns out to be a lot harder then she expected, and she starts her career as an officer who gives out parking tickets. She wishes to be treated as a capable officer that can help catch the criminals. Unfortunately, a rabbit is not seen as being capable and is seen as being weak and useless in the force. She sets out to prove them all wrong.

When Judy meets a con artist fox, Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), she finds herself using what she knows about his cons to get him to help her get involved in an investigation that the police don't have time to work on. She helps solve the case of a missing animal that leads to the largest case that the police haven't been able to solve without her.

Zootopia reminds me a little of the story line of the talking animals in “Wicked” and how they started reverting back to their animal self. It is a great movie with a moral that touches on the problems stereotyping can cause. I really like how they have paired a fox and a rabbit together, and how they became friends. Judy Hopps is a determined rabbit but sometimes very naive. Nick Wilde is a con artist but the kind of personality you root for, like Face in A-Team. Yet through their differences they become friends. The animation is really well done as is expected in a Disney movie. It’s a fun movie that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Zootopia is currently playing at Dinuba Platinum Theatres 6. Showtimes can be found on their website. Platinum Theaters Dinuba 6 now proudly presents digital quality films in 2-D and 3-D with 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound to maximize your movie experience.
