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 optimistic Officer Judy Hopps 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, to solve the mystery.

  1. New York Post Reviewed by: Lou Lumenick Mar 3, 2016 100 The year’s best film so far.
  2. Time Reviewed by: Stephanie Zacharek Mar 5, 2016 90 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.
  3. St. Louis Post-Dispatch Reviewed by: Sarah Bryan Miller Mar 3, 2016 88 Zootopia is visually rich, with a fully realized cityscape and an action-filled train station during commuter rush that would take several viewings to fully appreciate. It’s emotionally rich, too, a film that promises to have staying power far beyond spring break.
  4. TheWrap Reviewed by: Robert Abele Feb 12, 2016 75 Thankfully the creators of this expansive adventure, a crime-solving saga starring a bunny who wants to be a cop, have a bit more in mind than the usual strains of aww-dorable humor and frenetic action.
  5. Philadelphia Inquirer Reviewed by: Steven Rea Mar 3, 2016 75 Apart from its anthropomorphic, allegorical angle, Zootopia is also a tale of female empowerment and a classic noir, too.
  6. Slant Magazine Reviewed by: Kenji Fujishima Mar 2, 2016 75 The film goes deeper in its allegorizing, tapping into the volatile nature of identity politics.
  7. The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Reviewed by: Kate Taylor Mar 5, 2016 50 Zootopia takes the cultural practice of posing animals as human characters to queasy new heights.

Kids,For the very first time, I had watched a film in theater twice. It's really funny with brilliantly script, also a surprised twist. Kids, teenagers and even adults would definitely love this film, because this contains some "only-adult" moments. A big step for Disney and i'm sure it has entered the Oscar race next year.… Expand

Stunning visuals, relatable and well developed characters, all wrapped together in a funny but touching story! Disney hits a home run with this film though its positive and very timely messages of anti-bullying, stereotyping, and living up to your potential! But does so, so very well it never feels preachy! This is Disney at its been and rest assured you'll be seeing this film nominated for an Academy Award!

  7. LoneWanderer Mar 4, 2016 1 This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. First thing's first: Yes I know a lot of Furries were excited for this film, claiming they FINALLY got a film dedicated to furries! Except, their are PLENTY of other furry films out there, like Rock N Rule, Fritz The Cat, and Meet The Feebles to name a few. But I guess cause it's Disney it gets a free-pass? Anyway, onto the review: This is one,if not THE, worst films of 2016 and probably one of Disney's worst. It's main issue is that we seen this type of story done before and done better in countless of other movies (But as always, whenever Disney does it, they get a free pass). It's basic premise is that Judy Hops is the first rabbit to join the Police force but must join forces with a well-known con named Nick, a fox (haha I get it cause Foxes are known to be sneaky...wasn't that used before?) to uncover a sinister plot involving certain citizens of Zootopia reverting back to their predatory status and *SPOILERS* they find out that it was all the work of Deputy Mayor Bellwether. To put it in simpler terms: This is a movie about both Racism and SJWs. The characters are boring to the point of being predictable. Heck, most of the characters advertised are only there for only a joke or as a background character. As for the villain behind the plot, they're a SJW character and they want the world to fear predators like they used to...ANOTHER element we seen before. As for the animation, it's Disney, you'd expect great animation from them and here it's once again great. But that is the only positive I'll give it. The little attention to details are amazing at times and the way each animal is animated is clever and unique, Now, one scene in particular made me go and ask "WHY did Disney put this in the film?!" and it's one of the heavily advertised scenes. Said scene being the music scene with Shakira's character. Why do I have a problem with this scene? Well, the way the tiger characters are dressed and the way they are dancing, it is pretty much male strippers dancing. Disney...this is a film for FAMILIES so WHY did you put male strippers in the film?! You know, I wanted to like this film cause I thought Disney was doing something unique and different, but I can not bring myself to neither liking this film nor recommending it to anyone. If you want a furry film done right AND is creative and unique, watch either Fritz The Cat, Rock N Rule, or Meet The Feebles, If you want a MUST- SEE film in theaters, go and see Deadpool for a 20th time or save your cash for Ice Age: Collision Course, Warcraft, or any of the other films coming out this year. Even if you take the furry element out of this movie, this is still one of the worst films I've seen. Sorry, Disney, but this is the worst film of 2016 and one of your worst films in a while.

    And just a quick edit: Really Disney?! A Breaking Bad reference? IN A FAMILY FILM!? WHAT CHILD WATCHES BREAKING BAD?!… Expand
