Disney is back with another brilliantly animated film, Zootopia

Despite the surface of the plot being an atypical buddy-cop trope, the film executes above and beyond the stereotype to provide a witty movie that’s excellently written.

Zootopia is based in a world where a society of civilized mammals, including predators and prey, coincide in one huge metropolis, named Zootopia.

When Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) becomes the first ever bunny police officer, she has to join forces with cynical con-artist fox Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) to solve a conspiracy of predator animals reverting to their primal instincts.

Zootopia’s state-of-the-art animation is consistent with the quality standard of Disney’s animated films, having detailed colorful environments and bustling movements.

However, that alone isn’t what makes this film stand out from the rest.

Zootopia assesses social topics such as prejudice, racism and police brutality in a way that even most younger audiences can understand through the film’s creativity and wit.

Zootopia is a smart film that can cater to an audience of all ranges and deserves to been seen at least once from even the most casual of moviegoers.

It is hilarious and emotional and tells a story in a way that is familiar but at the same time enjoyable.
