As a child I used to day dream about a city full of animals and I used to draw this fantastic city full of animals, I wish I still had those drawings today. That is why I am so excited for the new Walt Disney Pictures Animated feature “Zootopia.” This movie will be like my drawings come to life.
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything.
But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. I am also excited for this movie because I seriously LOVE BUNNIES.
Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin), the very first bunny on Zootopia’s police force, jumps at the opportunity to crack her first case—even if it means partnering with fast-talking, scam-artist fox Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman) to solve the mystery.
I am excited that the film also features the voice talents of Katie Lowes [I LOVE her] from ABC’s “Scandal,” and “Big Hero 6” as Dr. Madge Honey Badger, who heads up all of City Hall’s most pressing medical cases.
Also in the film is Bonnie Hunt (“Return to Me,” “Jerry Maguire”) who provides the voice of Bonnie Hopps, mother of Judy—and her 275 brothers and sisters. Mrs. Hopps loves and supports her daughter, but is a hare nervous about Judy moving to Zootopia to become a big-city police officer.
Octavia Spencer (“Insurgent,” Oscar® winner for “The Help”) voices Mrs. Otterton, a desperate otter who turns to Officer Judy Hopps for help in solving her husband’s mysterious disappearance.
J.K. Simmons (“Juno,” Oscar® winner for “Whiplash”) lends his voice to Mayor Leodore Lionheart, the noble leader of Zootopia, who coined the city’s mantra that Judy Hopps lives by: “In Zootopia, anyone can be anything.”
