Zootopia is a city like no other that is comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it's a melting pot where animals from every environment live together. 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.

Zootopia is a movie about a bunny named Judy Hopps, who has dreams of becoming a great cop however, once on the job she finds things won’t be as easy as she thought they would be. Compared to her coworkers, Hopps is the smallest and is treated with less respect than the others but, this does not stop her from trying to be a good cop. Even though her first real case is tough to solve, Hopps wastes no time in trying her best to solve the case. In doing so, she comes across a fox named Nick Wilde, who may know more about the case that Hopps is working on. Overall, this movie was really enjoyable to watch and it had some great laughs throughout and a nice storyline. I would rate this 5/5.

There are two kinds of children's entertainment- the kind that only kids like, and the kind that has something more, that intrigues even adults. This is the former.
But it is better than the usual kids movie. The plot and style are fairly standard [Disney is a money-making machine that doesn't ever dare tweak the formulas, so the (Pixar-established) animation style is identical to every other animation you've seen in the last twenty years].
But the big plus in this movie that may tempt a few animation-loving adults, is the characterization. The characterization of the bunny and the fox, particularly the bunny heroine, is, gasp, even nuanced, subtle, a real treat.
Otherwise, meh, the usual hollywood balderdash.

Psycho-social analysis via cartoons :-) Engaging mystery plot; recommend for young and old.

Wonderful movie for all ages. Addresses issues like racism and sexism in an easy-to-understand manner. A great way to talk kids about these issues.

i love this movie so much!!!!!!!!

I have mixed feelings about this one. I hated the extreme anthropomorphism, which to me made it an offensively unrealistic portrayal of the animal world offering zero actual factual information about animals, but I really loved the main character, the determined and ambitious young bunny cop. The mystery storyline was good, the animation was beautiful and it was very entertaining.

Recommended to watch also the Bonus materials, which is available in Blu-ray only. Huge efforts were put into the making, from the research trip to observe animal behaviors in nature, to many revisions to evolve the story line, to the super details in the CG, animation, the unique walking style of each type of animal. Excellent job, well done!

Entertaining animated feature about a city where predators and prey wear clothes and live together in peace (what the predators eat is never mentioned, but what the heck, this is fantasy). A female bunny becomes the first bunny police officer but must prove herself after being assigned to parking duty. She teams up with a wily male fox to discover why 14 predators have gone "savage." Clever repartee and topical messages about diversity and getting along.

Surprisingly complex and emotional with strong messages about prejudice. Some of the scarier scenes might not be suitable for small children.

Agree with Beth1603's comments. Understand that it was the first to employ fur-controlling software iGroom, (from wiki) which gave character designers precise control over the brushing, shaping and shading of fur etc. Brings to mind the similarity in the outrageous adult animated film on existentialism in "Sausage Party". Also from wikipedia, budget for Zootopia was $150 million and Sausage Party was $19 million. Both were huge hits at the box office.

Zootopia is a unique place. It's a crazy, beautiful, diverse city, where we celebrate our differences. This is not the Zootopia I know. The Zootopia I know is better than this. We don't just blindly assign blame. We don't know why these attacks keep happening. But it is irresponsible to label all predators as savages. We cannot let fear divide us. Please, give me back the Zootopia I love.

I thought this city would be a perfect place where everyone got along and anyone could be anything. Turns out, life's a little bit more complicated than a slogan on a bumper sticker. Real life is messy. We all have limitations. We all make mistakes. Which means, hey, glass half full, we all have a lot in common. And the more we try to understand one another, the more exceptional each of us will be. But we have to try. So no matter what kind of person you are, I implore you: Try. Try to make the world a better place. Look inside yourself and recognize that change starts with you.

Chief Bogo: Life isn't some cartoon musical where you sing a little song and all your insipid dreams magically come true. So let it go.

Judy Hopps: Life's a little bit messy. We all make mistakes. No matter what type of animal you are, change starts with you.
