Disney’s Zootopia: Something for Everyone

Zootopia is Disney’s newest batter in the anthropomorphic narrative line up. This time their hard work, clever writing, and storytelling pays off, proving once again that Disney still has what it takes to move an audience, young and old, even after nearly 80 years of animation and storytelling.

Zootopia’s production quality is a direct reflection of Disney’s talented artists, writers, and animators. Visually, no detail was left unattended. For a movie that features nothing but fur covered characters, attention to detail in the CG depiction of the fur itself, interesting color variation, proper lighting, and overall character design is a must, and Disney did it perfectly with this film.

As for the relationships between the characters, they are simplistic and quick moving for the kids, but still layered and intertwined enough to keep the adult audience engaged.

No movie could ever be truly complete or compelling without a great music score. Fortunately composer Michael Giacchino delivered. The music in this film is reminiscent of Broadway musicals, with long ambiance while keeping an upbeat and fun tone, Zootopia’s music is nothing less than magnificent. With the recruitment of Shakira to sing the movie’s most recognizable piece, “Try Everything”, both the instrumental Broadway music fan, and the pop lover will get a good taste from Zootopia. Film music doesn’t seem to get all that much attention, but Zootopia soundtrack is definitely worth a listen.

Concerning the current state of the world, the themes addressed by the film couldn’t have come at a better time.”

Of course, this is a Disney movie after all, so there must be some level of enjoyment for all ages, and in true Disney fashion, Zootopia provides a great experience that children, teens, and adults can enjoy. The film makes jokes and references that can be taken by a child as harmless, but has a drastically different meaning to an adult, which allows the movie to remain appropriate for small children, yet humorous to the teens and adults in the audience. Especially noteworthy to Disney diehards are the numberous references to classic Disney movies, hidden Mickeys and other pop culture references, including Breaking Bad.

While the film provides extremely well pieced character relations that all coincide with the developing plot, we can’t forget the themes presented. The film puts forward a multitude of issues ranging from racism, conflicts between natural enemies (predator and prey), to self-image and confidence problems. The characters all have prejudices to overcome, as the city of Zootopia spirals into racially tethered hate and unwanted bigotry caused the words of those in power. Concerning the current state of the world, the themes addressed by the film couldn’t have come at a better time.

In short, Disney’s newest feature animation is nearly flawless. The story is simple for children to understand, but sophisticated enough to challenge the adults in the audience. With seamless animation, lovable diverse characters, themes that are relevant to today, this film is a truly enjoyable ride for all.  Zootopia rightfully earns itself a 10/10.
