The movie "Zootopia" is set in a world with anthropomorphic animals and live in both the city of Zootopia and in rural areas.
The story of the movie is about bunny Judy Hopps, who grew up in rural town of Bunnyburrow and aspires to be a police officer. Despite everyone saying that it couldn't happen and doubts that it could happen, Judy doesn't pay attention and her hard work and determination gets her through the police academy.
Judy Hopps lands herself as an officer in a precinct at the heart of the city of Zootopia. However, her superior, Chief Bogo, doesn't make it easy for Judy, dismisses her, and makes her a meter maid. Judy doesn't let this discourage her. She is still determined to rise up.
After a few days, an opportunity for Judy to investigate a case presents itself and she takes it. Bogo reluctantly gives her the case, giving her 48 hours to solve the case.
With the help of Nick Wilde, a fox, Judy sets out to solve this case of a missing otter and prove that she is more than just a bunny from a carrot farm.
Cast and Crew
The movie had a good cast. Featuring Ginnifer Goodwin as Judy Hopps, Jason Bateman as Nick Wilde, Idris Elba as Chief Bogo, just to name a few. The list of characters and actors portraying them is a decent one.
The movie was directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore, produced by Clark Spencer, and came out in 2016.
I first saw Zootopia with my eldest and my husband, when the movie first came out in theaters. We all enjoyed it. My daughter became obsessed with Judy Hopps, as she's always loved bunnies. And at the time, she even aspired to be a police officer.
The movie has such an amazing story. It's about not giving up on your dreams. Even when others are telling you that it's too hard, or that you can't do it, or whatever else they may be saying. It doesn't matter what you look like, or where you come from. If you want really want something, and you work hard, you can achieve anything.
This is definitely something that I feel that kids need to hear. Kids deserve to believe in themselves and believe that they can do anything. We all do.
I did enjoy how they used anthropomorphic mammals, who coexist, and have created a city with neighborhoods based on different areas of the world. It is really nice to see all the areas, when Judy first arrives into the city.
