ZOOTOPIA (2016): Good Movie, Beautiful Message…

My favourite types of Disney animated movies are the ones that do a great job of highlighting the importance of self belief  and following your heart; especially in the face of great opposition. Ratatouille (2007) is my favourite of this genre; then came Brave (2012) and now Zootopia.

Starring the voices of Idris Elba, Ginnifer Goodwin, Jenny Slate and Jason Bateman, there is plenty to adore besides the well delivered positive messages. For one, that brilliant DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) scene. To say more about the scene would be to spoil, so refrain I must.

I love the story, the very well imagined city of Zootopia and everything in it – including the design and all the little touches of humour that have nothing to do with dialogue. There’s also the classic Disney animated cuteness and a great main song for the soundtrack – Shakira’s ‘Try Everything

You probably have already but watch Zootopia again. I’ve seen it twice and will again to remind myself to keep my inner Judy Hopps at  the ready, always.

Happy Film Loving
