Movie Info

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it's a melting pot where animals from every environment live together-a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn't so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios' "Zootopia," a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard ("Tangled," "Bolt") and Rich Moore ("Wreck-It Ralph," "The Simpsons") and co-directed by Jared Bush ("Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero"), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016. Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin), the very first bunny on Zootopia's police force, jumps at the opportunity to crack her first case-even if it means partnering with fast-talking, scam-artist fox Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman) to solve the mystery.

Critic Reviews for Zootopia

All Critics (277) | Top Critics (47) | Fresh (270) | Rotten (7)

  • There are enough under-the-radar subtleties, rendered with a refreshing lack of smart-aleckiness, to make Zootopia feel current and fresh. It's a modest, unassuming entertainment that's motored by a sly sensibility.

  • The film feels like a riposte to Trump-ism. It also contains some of the best sloth-related humour you will ever see.

  • The animation is first rate - fur is rendered so realistically that it could trigger an allergy at 50 paces - but it is the writing that elevates the picture.

  • There's a magical moment in every movie of quality, a reciprocal bond between screen and viewer, where your shoulders happily drop, you sink deeper into your seat and your soul secretly smiles because it knows that you are in the safest of hands.

  • The tale of a plucky rabbit and a sly fox, it's also a meditation on human nature, civil society and the politics of stereotyping. And it has great sloth jokes.

  • Zootopia excels on so many levels that it stands with the finest of the Disney classics.

    A little wonder of an animated film that refuses to stick to characters constantly doing slapstick, singing or dancing but instead tells a coherent cop buddy story with a pretty deep underlying meaning. Of course there is comedy and cuteness but the overall plot and the themes are surprisingly serious, which makes the film just as enjoyable for adults as for kids. The animation is gorgeous, especially the initial train ride is a cinematic wonder. A surprising, lovable, sweet and smart adventure for young and old.

    Pretty amazing when a film about a bunny going wishing to break the mould and join up with the police force in a world inhabited by anthropomorphic animals poses better questions about discrimination and minority victimisation than most political dramas do. Disney strike again with a fantastic foray into deep, currently relevant subject matter, masquerading a debate for the ages within a film about cuddly animals. The voice acting is superb, particularly Bateman who voices the morally ambiguous fox Nick Wilde. The animal puns are a plenty and the film is genuinely hilarious in places. Like Inside Out, Zootopia entertains whilst slyly planting ideas and thoughts into your head, cementing Disney as a company that has matured profoundly.

    Wow, loved it. I've finally watched Zootopia and I'm glad I did. Beautifully executed, and one that deserves to be placed as one of the all time best animated films for its compelling narrative, inspired creativity, and beautiful execution. Not just good for kids, great for adults too.

    "Anyone can be anything." Zootopia is an incredibly fun and entertaining film from Walt Disney Animation. The story follows a rookie police bunny who teams up with a street hustler fox to track down a missing otter, and together they end up uncovering a dark conspiracy. Starring Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, Jenny Slate, and J.K. Simmons, the voice cast is especially good and gives some great performances; creating really colorful characters. And the animators do a great job at creating interesting character designs for dozens of different kinds of animals. However, the writing is very heavy handed in its messages about tolerance, the politics of fear, and not stereotyping others. There's also a bit of confusion in how this world of anthropomorphized animals works. Still, while it has some problems, overall Zootopia is a cute family film that delivers a lot of laughs.
