So here we have my second to last individual review on this era. I actually am excited for my over all review of the era, but I need to do my last two reviews. Anyway, enough of that here's the review of Zootopia
I'll be completely honest with you, when it was first announced, I thought it was going to be stupid. Then, I only have a very vague description of it- a movie about a city with talking animals. However, the more commercials I watched the more interested I became and wow! I was impressed! It was such a great movie!
Okay I really enjoyed the characters and how they were built up!
Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde were basically a unromantic version of Flynn Rider and Rapunzel a little bit (but not ripoffs). I actually liked how they weren't
in a romantic relationship. Yes, I don't mind romantic relationships, but I think they were perfectly fine as friends.
I actually preferred Nick over Judy, even though both are amazing, and I kind of wish he were the protagonist. I don't know, it was enjoyable seeing the story through Judy's eyes, but I would've preferred to see it more through Nick's eyes. But that's my opinion. It was great either way.
I found the plot was a little dark, but it was done in a cute way. It showed problems in our society today not just with race but just how people treat each other. They are prejudiced and judge mental. I think that's what made the plot so creative.
The plot surrounded Judy and Nick, who both were treated differently. Nick, was treated like a monster because he was a predator and because of something that happened years before he was even born. Judy was treated like a weakling, and had no chance to prove herself before everyone started doubting her. This was a story about them proving themselves, against a stereotype, and I really thought it was a strong way of doing so.
Once again, this wasn't a musical but the music still was fantastic. I really thought "Try Anything was a fitting song."
I really liked the overall message about about finding oneself. I thought it was a very important message, especially in today's society. They had a very creative way of sending the message they wanted to send.
Obviously this film was well received by audiences. It won an Oscar, it ended up being the third highest grossing Disney movie, only being beat by Frozen
and The Lion King
and got a lot of well deserved love, and I'm happy for that.
As I said before, this movie is an accurate depiction of today's society. It overall outlines stereotyping and prejudice very well, in a new and creative way. I am starting to sound like a broken record, but it's true. It was one of my favorite things about the movie.
What I would have done differently
Although the movie was really well done, I'd still preferred Nick to be the main protagonist more than Judy. I really love both and I think the movie was still really good, but I still would have preferred this.
Overall, it was a really great movie and one of my favorite Disney movies, as well as my favorite Revival era movie.
Last but not least is Moana!
