Fangirls, last week I finally saw Zootopia! My friend Chelsea and I went to get dinner and see it, because she (and I) have both wanted to so badly, but no one would go with us. So we went together! We missed the first 15 minutes (the website showed a different start time than the theatre actually had), but it was basically just the introduction to Judy Hopps.
Zootopia is a movie about stereotyping and it’s dangers. It follows Judy Hopps, the first bunny on the ZPD (Zootopia Police Department) as she goes from meter maid to detective. Hearing that an otter is missing, she vows to find him, but her boss says that she only has 48 hours. She teams up with a fox that hustled her the day before (Nick Wilde) to solve the case (she hustles him by recording his claim of tax evasion).
Not only was this movie super adorable, but it was also incredibly dark. While on the hunt for the missing mammal, Hopps and Wilde find that animals are going savage; what could be causing it? Eventually they find Emmett the otter, and he has gone savage. When the animals go savage, they’re reverting back to primal instincts; forgetting about clothing, and attacking. It’s up to Hopps and Wilde to figure out why it’s happening.
Zootopia is an incredibly fun movie, for all ages. I’m glad I got to see it, and will definitely be buying it when it comes out on Blu-Ray. It’s great; I almost want to go see it in theaters again! It has some very strong themes; racism (and specicism) and it’s dangers being the most obvious. I highly recommend it to all of you.
