I was rather impressed by the story line and how strong the plot was. Normally I've been finding a lack in the plot lines of animated films but Zootopia surprisingly had a well thought out one that was followed through with. There's more to it than just a cop bunny that teams up with a sly fox and I am glad that the previews that I saw did not lead on to the basis of the plot. I hate when previews giveaway more of the film in those two minutes.
I love the diversity of animal characters and how wacky some of them are. The mixture of smart, sassy, wacky and just all out silly animals made the movie even better. I mean you have seen the preview with the slow sloths right? Yeah they were funny and there are for more interesting ones like the hippy one in the picture to the left.
The evolvement of animation is getting better and better which can be seen in Zootopia. The technology for animation is improving so much to the point that they are making these animated movies look real and from a world of their own. The depth, structure and colors makes everything pop out and extremely streamlined. Plus it doesn't hurt that they are putting these movies out in 3D which adds to the realness of them. No flat cartoon characters here but instead you have ones that have taken on a life of their own.
My son is six years old and loved this movie a lot. He was jabbering on and on about the fox afterwards and how that was his favorite character. I would definitely have to agree that the fox was a pretty cool dude. This is definitely a movie that him and I both recommend that everyone should go and see if you're looking for some laughs and something to do with the family. It is definitely a must see for the family and the young at heart.
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.
