Reasons To Why You Need To See Disney's Zootopia

Much like the film Wall-E, DISNEY'S ZOOTOPIA is a reflection of our society and filled with many social messages about where we are headed and what we should be doing to keep our world a peaceful place to live.  A few messages brought to the forefront of the film are
  • Try Everything. Even if it doesn't work out the first time keep at it
  • Encourage others. Don't put limitations on what they should do
  • Bullying is wrong. What may make someone act out now, could make them ashamed of it later in life
  • Don't judge a book by the cover is the biggest message in this film. Make sure to give everyone a fair shake and they could become someone very important in your life
Another reason to see this film is the amazing animation. Be sure to see this movie in 3D. When you first see the City of Zootopia you suddenly feel immersed in the surroundings.  The way they brought the city to life is a great theatrical achievement.

Also if you are Canadian you will recognize Peter Moosebridge as being voice by famous Canadian news anchor Peter Mansbridge.

The final reason, and the reason why people go to the movies is, this film is very entertaining.  The characters are on point with their reactions to the situations, it has a great story, it has lots of funny moments and a few serious ones to make the audience think about how they can grow as people.

We suggest taking the whole family to see ZOOTOPIA this weekend! If you can't make it this weekend then be sure to make it part of your March Break plans.

 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 optimistic 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. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theatres on March 4, 2016.
