Who would have thought a spirited bunny and a mischievous fox could become the best of friends? There are so many wonderful lessons to be learned from this amazing film…from the determination of one little bunny who never gave up on her dream, to learning how to help each other and follow your heart. My kids (plus my husband and I) LOVED Zootopia. It is a new favorite in my household (they have watched it about 10 times this week…thanks to my early released copy I received while on the #Zootopiabluray event).
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. 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 rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) 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 (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.
Zootopia broke records worldwide earning more than $900 million at the global box office! Critics and audiences around the world have fallen in love with the innovative animal metropolis of “Zootopia” and the comedic chemistry of rookie rabbit office Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) and scam-artist fox Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman). NOW you can own ZOOTOPIA! Available on Digital HD, Blu-ray, and Disney Movies Anywhere.
