(2016) (voices of Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Computer Animated Dramedy: The first bunny cop in a city filled with various anthropomorphic animal species must contend with a con artist fox while trying to solve a series of missing animal cases.
- Judy Hopps (a rabbit voiced by GINNIFER GOODWIN) has long wanted to be the first bunny cop in Zootopia, a metropolis filled with various anthropomorphic animal species who dress and behave like humans. Hired by Mayor Lionheart (a lion voiced by J.K. SIMMONS) and Assistant Mayor Bellwether (a sheep voiced by JENNY SLATE), Judy is dismayed that the only officer who seems happy to see her is dispatcher Benjamin Clawhauser (a cheetah voiced by NATE TORRENCE). Things get worse when Chief Bogo (a water buffalo voiced by IDRIS ELBA) assigns her to meter maid duty, all while the rest of the cops go off to solve crimes, including a rash of missing animal cases.
While performing her parking enforcement duties, Judy comes across Nick Wilde (a fox voiced by JASON BATEMAN) who initially appears to be a caring dad, but in reality is just a streetwise con artist. She ends up needing his help when Chief Bogo -- upset about an unrelated incident Judy was involved in trying to nab Duke Weaselton (a weasel voiced by ALAN TUDYK) -- gives her 48 hours to find Mr. Otterton, the missing husband to Mrs. Otterton (a river otter voiced by OCTAVIA SPENCER), and if she doesn't, she'll be fired.
Nick ends up helping Judy meet a number of interesting characters, including Flash (a sloth voiced by RAYMOND S. PERSI) who works at the DMV, and Yax (a yak voiced by TOMMY CHONG) who runs a naturalist animal camp, although the fox isn't happy about running into a crime boss, Mr. Big (a shrew voiced by MAURICE LaMARCHE), who he wronged in the past.
During their investigation, not only do Judy and Nick come across the missing animals, but they also learn that those carnivores have mysteriously returned to their savage and uncivilized states. As they set their initial antagonistic differences aside, the bunny and fox do what they can to solve the matter before time runs out.

- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
