Zootopia review

Zootopia review

The school holidays are just one week away, but parents may take solace in the fact that Disney film Zootopia has already landed.

Not a sequel, not a re-boot, Zootopia is brand new and has already wowed critics overseas.

Judy Hops is a bunny cop on a mission to make the world a better place, and when I say world, I mean the world of Zootopia.

Every hit movie needs a likeable rogue, and in Zootopia Nick's your man -- well, Fox.

Judy and Nick are hardly the most compatible of animals -- clever fox and dumb bunny?

But this is just one of a host of stereotypes the filmmakers blow out of the water in a film destined for the most watched and most loved movies section of my home cinema collection.

There are too many reasons why this new Disney outing is top-notch. The clothes? The mob mouse? The music? The animation? The story? There are just too many reasons to see it.

Fresh, clever and squeal-level funny, Zootopia was just as brilliant on second viewing and no doubt will be for repeat ad nausea. A great story with a sugar-free message, Zootopia is an all-ages giggle fest delivered by a cast of lovable and memorable animated characters I am already in love with.

Five stars.
