Disney’s animation division continue their terrific form of recent years with this consistently surprising and charm-packed tale of friendship, acceptance and inclusivity.
With its winning voice cast, awesome visual imagination, and the funniest sloths this side of YouTube, Zootropolis has the “important message” and adult jokes required of any intelligent kid-friendly animation – not to mention strong genre credentials. However, so warm, witty and sincere is the message and its delivery that all but the most cynical viewers will be completely won over.
Big-hearted, hilarious and regularly inspired, Zootropolis is a treat for all cinemagoers, regardless of age.
For some reason people are still surprised when a Disney animation turns out to be great – the brilliance of Zootropolis should put this mindset to rest once and for all.
