Bunnies that fight crime, Foxes that sell popsicles on the blackmarket, and Mafia rodents; welcome to Zootropolis, where mammals are their own boss, and there’s not a human in sight.
One bunny with a big dream is on a mission to change the world, and she’s not about to give up anytime soon, despite her parents’ disapproval.
Since being an infant, Judy Hopps has dreamed of being the first rabbit to join the ZPD (Zootropolis Police Department), but she gets a little bit more than she bargained for when she takes on her first assignment as a newly appointed police rabbit.
Unfortunately, her dreams of making the world a better place soon vanish with her first assignment. Yup, that’s right; all those late nights spent training at the police academy really paid off, because Hopps is now a world class…metre maid.
But never fear, Hopps soon rectifies the slight hitch in her world saving plan by taking matters into her own paws.
What makes this film so gloriously entertaining and loveable is not the insanely brilliant animation, nor the priceless popular cultures spoofs that have worked their way into the storyline; it is the story itself, which utilises every aspect of a Disney classic, and envelops its audience into a timeless world that can be revisited again and again.
So as long as you’re not afraid to brave a cinema full of children this Easter, this film is pawsitively worth a watch.
