ZOOTOPIA – Rated PG

Starring the voice talents of Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, Bonnie Hunt, Tommy Chong, JK Simmons, Octavia Spencer, and Shakira

 “Ready to make the world a BETTER PLACE!”

Living in the tranquil existence of both predators and prey in ZOOPTOPIA ~ we meet a Bunny cop named Judy, who joins forces with a slyer than usual Fox named Nick, in order to crack her FIRST BIG CASE…and hopefully, change their world FOR THE BETTER IN THE PROCESS ~ THIS IS ZOOTOPIA!!!

Bound and determined to become the first BUNNY COP EVER ~ Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) has struggled through the Academy and is about to take on the world as a full fledged police officer…

When her path crosses with a charming and sly Fox named Nick (Jason Bateman), it seems that Nick’s life is composed of more than meets the eye, as they say…

After being released from meter duty ~ THANK GOD! ~ Chief Bogo (Idris Elba) finally gives Judy her first BIG Case ~ as it seems Emmitt Otterton has disappeared and his wife, Mrs Otterton (Octavia Spencer) is frantically trying to find him…

With no leads to speak of, and only a few days to solve the case, Judy decides to join forces with Nick, as he knows way more about ZOOTOPIA, It’s districts, and its slew of shady characters, than she would ever be able to gain knowledge of on her own…

As our policeman and her sidekick weave their way through ZOOTOPIA and the animals that inhabit it, it seems that some unknown menace is among them… changing the footprint of this once euphoric place…

I give ZOOTOPIA a RATING OF: MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN ~ DISNEY has done it again – bringing to life a film that will not only touch (and educate) the children who are viewing it, but the adults in the audience too! References abound all throughout this film ~ so be on the lookout for some awesome TV and MOVIE SCENE references ~ along with the interwoven storylines of perseverance, acceptance and learning to get along with one another (NO BULLIES ALLOWED HERE) making this film another classic Disney MASTERPIECE. You will be astounded by the animation, the incredible slew of endearing and heartwarming creatures that you get to meet, and the way that ~ even in the few dark moments that arrive in this profound storyline~ COME ON, its DISNEY ~ you knew they were coming at some point ~you will be enchanted as you continue on your journey through each passing frame. This movie is PURRFECT – in EVERY WAY ~ but I must share too, that you might want to take heed in the PG rating ~ as it may NOT BE SO PURRFECT for the youngest of viewers, meaning 2-4 years olds, as some of the younger viewers sitting by me wanted to leave during the darker scenes of this film ~ and their parents obliged them ~ but it’s really your call ~AS I THINK ZOOTOPIA IS ANOTHER SLAM DUNK for DISNEY and their ingeniously creative animation team!!!
