Zootopia is an animated movie with a story fit for young ones and appropriate for adults alike. With a story focusing on prejudice and stereotype, Zootopia shows how prejudice and stereotype can impede our reason as we watch this fast-paced, top-notch animation that you cannot help but love.

Disney has lately dominated the animation scene over their combo with their sister company Pixar to deliver stories and animations that will leave you running back for seconds with the kids.

The writers had everything lined up for a timely message on prejudice and stereotype to make you think on how we view others, then they added wonderful references to adult movies, so the adults watching will not be denied laughs as they sit back viewing with their children.

I, for one, was totally intrigued by the Godfather reference.

The animation in this movie was fluid and the movie’s depiction of each animal was amazing, I guess many would have seen the trailer which showed the sloth named Flash attending to Hopps and Nick, the scene is such a classic I found myself on YouTube after watching the movie to get another view.

Packing more laughs than an average animation should, Zootopia also has a message for you:
Keep believing in yourself when nobody else will and be a doer not a viewer. Another message from the movie I truly admired was when Hopp refused to see her current position as a meter-maid as a step down from her dream, she made sure she was the best meter-maid there was and when an opportunity made itself available to do more she did.

Zootopia is a place in a world of anthropomorphic mammals, Judy Hopp has always dreamed of being an officer of the law, even though rabbits are not considered suited for the job. She passed her classes and started off in Zootopia as a meter-maid, there she made an acquaintance of a fox named Nick. When the opportunity presented herself, Hopp got herself assigned to a case of the missing Mr. Otterton.

She conned Nick the fox to join in the search and safe return of Mr. Otterton and both got involved in a conspiracy that went high up in the government of Zootopia and unified their friendship.

Breaking box-office records for animation in different countries like China, the movie's three-day opening was the largest ever for Walt Disney Animation Studios.
The movie currently holds a 99% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. If you have not seen this movie this Easter period, I advise you do so with the kids before the break is over.
