Zootopia opened today in theaters everywhere! I was fortunate enough to see it earlier this week and wanted to share with you my thoughts in this Zootopia movie review. Let me start by saying this movie is great for the entire family, and has even received a Rotten Tomatoes score of 100% – Certified FRESH! Need more?

Zootopia Movie Review
Speaking of Flash – he’s a sloth, and you know, sloths are really slow. REALLY S-L-O-W. So slow that Emily kept asking me why he was speaking and moving so SLOW. So maybe you’ll want to introduce your little one to what a sloth is before the movie so they don’t keep asking during the movie. Flash is a scene-stealer, and by far one of my favorite scenes in the entire movie. It received non-stop laughter for sure from everyone at the screening.
Zootopia is an animal lovers dream! Think NYC but for animals, it’s the place all the cool animals live. Country rabbit Judy Hopps wants to become an Officer, but she’s being judged by her cuteness and is not taken seriously by anyone, including her boss and criminals. Hopps pairs with an unlikely ally, a fox named Nick Wilde to solve a mystery that is plaguing the mammals of Zootopia and turning prey and predators against each other.
I don’t want to give away too much, but I will tell you about our experience. I attended Zootopia with Emily, age 4. There were a few scenes during which she jumped into my lap, no biggy. There was one scene in which I nearly jumped out of my seat – as did the people around us – adults and children alike. We were introduced to new animals we hadn’t yet discussed with Em before, like Flash the Sloth, among others. Which proved to be an educational opportunity for discussion after the movie. Go see it – I am looking forward to seeing it again, this time with Anabelle too.
