News & Interviews for Zootopia
Critic Reviews for Zootopia
The dazzling design of Zootopia offers a non-stop stream of invention and visual wit that perfectly enhances a surprisingly involving plot...A gleaming gem of a film.
... a deceptively clever movie that has timely lessons for all generational demographics.
Zootopia remembers the power of George Orwell's Animal Farm and gives it a Disney digital system upgrade and brings it to the 21st Century.
Believe it: Disney's latest digitally animated feature is a contra-Trumpian, race-conscious, political-conspiracy neo-noir in the guise of a funny talking-animal cartoon.
Audience Reviews for Zootopia
Where the new Jungle Book fails is in the executive decision to "play it safe" script-wise despite it's obvious artistic good looks. Zootopia is the exact opposite, a tale wherein the tale is the meat, not the looks. It's a detective story essentially and a simple one at that, but woven into the tale is a beautifully constructed argument for tolerance and understanding told from the point-of-view of one weak link in the chain, one for whom determination, luck, patience and, most of all, friendship, coalesce into benefits for all: very heartwarming. And the animation is good too.
A brilliant film by Disney, Zootopia is a topically themed story with an inspiring message and well written plot carried by a riveting duo of protagonists.
That's not mentioning the elaborately creative set pieces exploring environments of different species, smart animorphics of our every day culture and a truly colorful supporting cast.
Direction is top notch as the story transitions between comedic acts and a multi-layered procedural seamlessly through Hops (Goodwin) & Wilde (Bateman). There is never a lack of point for intrigue between their unlikely relationship, the investigation and encompassing commentary on diversity/racism.
There's just so much going on in Zootopia that works, it boasts excelling features from top to bottom making it one of Disney's best productions in a long time.
Byron Howard and Rich Moore's Zootopia has fun with anthropomorphic animals.
Sprinting at 110 minutes, the story is quick and full of cuteness. The film never drags and is no where near convoluted; this is a good thing, especially with a film of this caliber. Doses of laughter appear from time to time, but Zootopia is just as serious as it is funny, leaving it feeling as an action adventure more than a comedy.
Vibrant colors and creative design of the settings make for a pleasant watch for the eyes. It doesn't hurt that the lead, Judy Hopps, is an adorable bunny.
The voice work gets a passing grade as no character has a misplaced sounding voice. Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman carry the heavy load without any problem.
Zootopia lives up to the carrots. Amusing, laid back watch.
