Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 55th feature film brings us 2016’s Zootopia about anthropomorphic mammals that face prejudice and xenophobia that parallel our own challenges in today’s society.

When the perky bunny, Judy Hopps becomes the first rabbit police officer in Zootopia, she is assigned to parking duty as a meter maid. Police Chief Bogo thinks she is too tiny to do a job where big beasts keep the peace (even in Little Rodentia where Hopps is a giant compared to the rodents living there).

To prove herself to her superiors, Hopps accepts Chrif Bogo’s challenge to find the missing Emmitt Otterton in 48 hours or resign. Hopps quickly finds herself paired up with a con fox named Nick Wilde. Although the sly fox is the rabbit’s “natural, Nick ends up being the only animal in Zootopia that can help her crack the case.

What the two uncover is a scheme by the highest office in the city that pits prey vs predator in order to create a fear that helps them control the majority of the population while discriminating against the minority.

Although the allegory is clear, Disney weaves so much humor and intelligence into the plot that the story doesn’t become preachy or heavy handed. The animation and detail of the environments adds to the exquisite ambiance Disney has created. The chemistry between Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman is wonderful along with the voice work from the rest of the cast. Alan Tudyk fans will be happy to know that he is back in his fourth consecutive Disney animated film after 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph, 2013’s Frozen, and 2014’s Big Hero 6. That sexy gazelle, Shakira, will have the young ones shaking their booty in the finale.
