Movie Review: Zootopia!
Unlike the previous Disney films that made its mark this was one of those so called underdog stories that teaches young minds dare to dream the impossible. That voice is represented by Judy a rabbit who kept her dream possible in a very young age no matter what. In the other side of this story a street wise fox named Nick who has lived in reality trying to make ends meets even though through illegal means.
In between the story of these two characters are other personalities that make this an entertaining film to watch. The film features an ensemble voice cast led by Ginnifer Goodwin (Judy Hopps), Jason Bateman (Nick P. Wilde), Idris Elba (Chief Bogo), Shakira (Pop Star Gazelle), J.K. Simmons (Leodore Lioneheart), and many more.
Visually Zootopia is as impressive as the previous Disney films like Wreck-It Ralph and Big Hero 6. But this film stands out to be unique with its own visual that make you think it’s another world filled with anthropomorphic animals that coexist like no other films that used this concept. This has more of a ‘grander feel’ to what its like living in a big city populated by the biggest to the smallest animal.
What makes Zootopia visual enticing is how the story unravel with its twist and turns focusing on the two characters misadventures. It’s not a dark as any noir film but had the right balance of how the stories being told and giving the scenes some depth that most kids would surely pay attention to.
Overall it’s not what you entirely expect in a Walt Disney film, but it truly delivers the message that no matter what everyone days and if you put the work to it you can achieve your dream as what Judy Hopps stands for. This is how Nick P. Wilde finding himself not the schemer fox that he has become, but truly a fun film enjoyed by the entire family.
"Zootopia" is now showing in Philippine cinemas starting February 17, 2016 from Walt Disney Studios distributed by Columbia Picture Philippines!
