Zootopia (2016)

Directors: Byron Howard, Rich Moore, Jared Bush

Writers: Jared Bush & Phil Johnston, story by Byron Howard & Rich Moore & Jared Bush & Jim Reardon & Josie Trinidad & Phil Johnston and Jennifer Lee

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, Jenny Slate, Nate Torrence, Bonnie Hunt, Don Lake, Tommy Chong, J.K. Simmons

In a world where predator and prey have learned to coexist, Zootopia’s first rabbit police officer (Ginnifer Goodwin) investigates a case that threatens to undo the foundations of animal society. 

“Zootopia” is the complete package.


It starts off with some imaginative world-building and then delivers a story with a lot of heart and good lessons for the kids, tons of laughs that can be appreciated by young and old alike, and some social commentary that goes down easy because it is delivered in such a humorous and clever way.


The setting of this film is so richly imagined that Disney could produce numerous follow-ups that don’t even need to feature the same characters; I found myself curious to know more about all the nooks and crannies of Zootopia that are revealed in this film.
