With a trio of high quality films (Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, Big Hero 6) in the last few years, Disney’s animation studio has been on a roll. Zootopia takes their game to the next level – equal to Pixar’s best level.
Set in a world where humanity never existed – and mammals evolved past their predator/prey relationship – Zootopia takes place in a world of anthropomorphized animals. The titular city, from afar, brings to mind a multi-colored city of OZ – or maybe Wayne Boring’s Kryptonopolis from the fifties’ Superman comics – it is an exquisite sight.
The cinematic year of 2015 is now officially closed as the 88th Annual Academy Awards have been bestowed. As such, this episode of GeekScholars Movie News provides a quick recap of the winners, surprises, snubs, and memorable moments from the Oscars ceremony.
From there, the GeekScholars reveal what they are looking forward to in March, including their Rotten Tomatoes and Opening Box Office predictions for:
Cop shows, buddy movies, mysteries – each and every one of these tropes can be made even better by one thing: anthropomorphic animals (see trailer for a very loose definition).
Disney’s Zootopia combines all three tropes in what, if you can believe the trailer (and it’s very persuasive), will be a very cool, very funny movie. Check said trailer out after the jump. Zootopia will trip into theaters on March 4th, 2016.
Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Have joined the voice cast of Disney’s Zootopia – a film set in a ‘modern mammal metropolis.’
Goodwin will voice Judy Hopps, an optimitisic bunny newly accepted into the city’s police force, while Bateman will tackle the con artist fox, Nick Wilde, with whom she must reluctantly team up to solve her first case.
