WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In a world that is entirely dominated by anthropomorphic animals, eager rabbit Judy Hopps (Goodwin) enlists in the police department of the enlarged city of Zootropolis, which quickly turns out to not quite be the breakthrough she was hoping for. Things start to look up, however, when she is assigned to the case of a missing otter, and as she realises that the disappearance might just uncover something much bigger, she teams up with con-artist fox Nick Wilde (Bateman) to get to the bottom of things…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Now that we’ve established that Disney is back on form after hits like Frozen and Big Hero 6, it’s time for them to do what they do best: make an adorable animated film about talking animals, but on a much larger scale than even they have attempted before.
