I have to say, after seeing this movie twice in theaters, and watching it a bunch since it came out on Blu-ray & DVD, I love it! They did an amazing job with this one. It was so great, and here's a few reasons why.
1. The characters are great & funny!
I don't just mean Nick & Judy, I mean every character around. The creators of this movie made each character have a story. Everything is always well thought out--of course, it's Disney. Let me take a minute to talk about the freaking dancing tigers! I want to be one of them, now! They have sparkles in their fur! REALLY?! And look at those shorts! I can see one of my dancer friends wearing those. Sorry, they've quickly become my favs. Fan girl moment over.
2. The cast was incredible!
I mean, who doesn't want to hear those voices again? And I LOVE that they used people from Once Upon A Time. Aren't Ginnifer Goodwin & Josh Dallas the CUTEST couple ever?! I love that Josh was put in the film too. Give me more Disney!!
3. This was a great movie for it's time.
What I mean is that this film came at a time when our world is kinda sucky. Our own country (America) is acting similar to the turmoil & blaming in Zootopia towards the predators. No, our problems aren't as easily fixed as the one in the movie. But, if you think about it, it wasn't perfect for the movie either. Life isn't perfect!
Like the movie, a lot of people are blaming others for the problems in the world. I'm sorry, but you can't blame one section, race, religion, species or gender for our problems. And Zootopia basically showed just that. It showed that we should celebrate each others differences, not shame them.
"We don't just blindly assign blame. Give me back the Zootopia I love."
This is a line from Giselle when there are protesting rallies. Did you hear that America? Because it basically was directed toward you. Why are we assigning blame to people based on looks or sexual preference? We shouldn't! Gotta love Disney for giving something with subliminal messages at the right time. They may not have even meant to do it, but who cares! The movie leaves you feeling happy, and we should be. We are alive, and enjoying every minute. Anyone can be anything--not just in Zootopia, but in America too. And we shouldn't try to stop them either!
Ok, my rant of why this movie was good is over. I think they should do a second movie! They are doing it with Frozen & Wreck It Ralph, so why not this one too?! I wanna see Nick & Judy do more as cops. Maybe save their world again? Or show some other characters more like Clawhauser & Chief Bogo? Who knows! I just know that they did so well with this story, and this world.
To sum up, I wanna know more! And I'm sure many other people do too. Maybe it'll be at another time that we need it. Let's be honest, we needed this movie. So, I leave you with the ending quote from Judy....
"Real life is messy. We all have limitations. We all make mistakes. Which means--hey, glass half full!--we have a lot in common. And the more we try to understand one another, the more exceptional each of us will be. But we have to try. So no matter what type of animal you are, from the biggest elephant to our first fox, I implore you: Try. Try to make the world a better place. Look inside yourself and recognize that change starts with you. It starts with me. It starts with all of us."
