For awhile now, anticipation has been steadily growing for Disney's new animated feature, Zootopia. I already have my tickets, and I can't wait to see the film! Who says you can't still love animated movies when you're an adult? The film centers around the unlikely duo of Judy Hops (Ginnifer Goodwin) a rookie bunny cop, and Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), a fugitive fox. The two must work together to uncover a dangerous conspiracy that threatens to destroy Zootopia as they know it. The cast also features the voice talents of Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons, Octavia Spencer, Shakira, Bonnie Hunt, and Jenny Slate.
In a ridiculously smart advertising campaign, Disney Animation Studio's recently released new Zootopia posters, along with a short TV spot, spoofing this year's Oscar nominees. This brilliant collection of posters spoofs films from Star Wars: The Force Awakens to Ex Machina and The Revenant. The campaign perfectly coincides with the awards show which is set to announce its winners this Sunday. Here are my favorites from the poster lineup! You can check out the rest of them over at EW and Slashfilm.
1. Mr. Big Short
Maybe the conspiracy that Judy and Nick are working to uncover has something to do with the corrupt housing market in Zootopia? That could get interesting. Personally, I want to see the other films listed here too. I mean, come on. 'The Blind Mouse' and 'Monkeyball'? Heck yeah.
2. Steve Paws
Current Oscar nominees Michael Fuzzbender and Cat Winslet give captivating performances in this biographical film about Steve Paws. Although it will probably go home empty-handed come Oscar night, Steve Paws excellently chronicles the life of everyone's favorite raccoon genius and his furry team.
3. Star Wars: The Furce Awakens
A long time ago in a galaxy fur, fur away... Scavenger Bray and rogue stormtrooper, Shark Finn set out on a quest to save the galaxy from the evil Kylo Wren. With the help of Doe Dameron and the ResistAnts, Bray & Shark Finn work to end the oppressive Furst Order and restore peace to the galaxy. You won't want to miss this epic film, coming soon to a Zootopian theatre near you!
4. The Hibernant
Abruptly awakened from hibernation, frontiersbear Huge Grass must fight for his survival after being mauled by a vicious Leonardo DiCaprio. This awe-inspiring feature from director Alejandro G. Iguanatu is not to be missed.
5. Mad Yak: Furry Road
Tom Hairy and Charlene Theroar star in this dusty epic as Mad Yak and Fur-iosa, respectively. Set in post-apocalyptic Australia, the two must work together to escape tyrannical ruler, Immortan Joey. With high speed chases and incredible cinematography Mad Yak: Furry Road is one of this year's best films!
