Disney makes yet another animated, this one with a message to be heard

Like most of Disney’s films, Zootopia is a cuddly adventure, full of huggable characters and underdogs to root for.

From prejudice to bullying, Zootopia covers a myriad of issues that face people — or animals, rather — today. But unlike some of Disney’s past movies, Zootopia marks a return to incorporating an equal amount of comedy in the film’s storyline, volleying back and forth between the intense dramatics of what’s befallen the metropolitan city of Zootopia and the hilarious banter between the two main characters, Judy and Nick.

From the overall theme of segregation and prejudice to the almost overwhelmingly honest comedy, Disney has created one of its most memorable movies in years. It’s hard not to fall head-over-heels for the characters and the gorgeous animation, but more importantly, Zootopia is the best example of what animation has the potential to be. It is a near-perfect, flawless movie that’s hyperaware of its existence within the realm of Disney’s overarching film landscape, including multiple references to other Disney movies, including Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph.


Like The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast — and yes, Frozen — Zootopia has cemented itself as an instant Disney classic that will be cherished for generations to come.
