Screen Shots! - Zootopia

TITLE: Zootopia
RATED: PG, because there's a few jump scares that might frighten a five year old, also, excessive animal nudity ;)
GENRE: Family, Animation, Adventure, Buddy-cop
STARRING: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba
NOTABLE CREW: Directors - Byron Howard, Rich Moore, Jared Bush; Writers - Jared Bush, Phil Johnston, and 7 other people, Exectutive Producer - John Lasseter; And a large team of very talented animators
WHAT IT'S ABOUT: In a city of anthropomorphic animals, a rookie bunny cop and a fox con artist must work together to overcome predjudice and uncover a conspiracy.
WHAT I THINK: Though my expectations were set low by some disappointing advertising, was pleasantly surprised by a cast of likable, funny characters, a well-rendered world, a meaningful theme, and awesome in-jokes and movie references that (hopefully) only the adults in the audience will be able to get. Also, the texture animation was so good that I really wanted to reach into the screen and pet the bunnies.
WHO SHOULD WATCH IT: The whole family. This is one of those rare movies that strikes the delicate balance of something that both the young children and the adults who bring them will be able to enjoy.
COOL FACTOIDS: This is the fourth consecutive Disney animated film featuring the voice talents of Alan Tudyk (who many of you might know as Wash from Firefly). He was also in Wreck-It RalphFrozen, and Big Hero 6. In Frozen he played "the Duke of Weselton" and in Zootopia he plays "Duke Weaselton". During the movie, Judy once mispronounces Duke's last name as "Weselton".
