We move away from the past and flash to the present with Disney’s latest animated movie, Zootopia. This critically-acclaimed film is tearing up the box-office with a $73.7 million opening weekend.
It is a very funny movie for both kids and adults. The themes of the movie are complex but explained in a manner that kids, of all ages, can understand them. But, at least for my family, Zootopia is an important movie because it is the first Disney movie where a rabbit gets to play a starring role.
My daughter is a massive rabbit fan (she even hopped to meet Thumper and Miss Bunny when she met them a few years ago). She has been looking forward to this movie for months. Judy Hopps may have moved to the top of her list of favorite Disney characters. Judy is a young, energetic, and full of determination. A role bunny for children to look up to. Ginnifer Goodwin brought that energy to Judy throughout the entire picture.
