“Zootopia” is coming!






Imagine a world in which “humans never happened,” and you have the central premise of Disney’s upcoming 3D computer animated feature, Zootopia.  Now the mammals which dominate are anthropomorphic, which to the uninitiated means they are human-like intelligent bipedal creatures who use language, wear clothing, and employ technology in a civilized society.  This is a familiar realm to a card-carrying furry like myself; my world, and welcome to it!

Now two of the central characters include Judy Hopps, a rookie police officer rabbit and a red fox called Nick Wilde (played by Jason Bateman), described as being a small-time con artist (while I prefer to consider him as sly). Together the two form an unlikely alliance to solve the case of a missing otter.

The result is a buddy comedy/adventure with a large cast of animal characters that include a gazelle pop star and a noble lion mayor. Opening in early March, you’ve never seen anything like Zootopia be-fur…

    Obviously, the title is a pun on the word “Utopia.” But, what i bet most people don’t know is that Sir Thomas More coined that word, circa the 17th century, from two ancient Greek terms that collectively–and literally–translate as “no place.” Furthermore, while the entire work of fiction bearing that title was supposed to describe a society that was like Heaven on Earth, Sir Thomas’ idea of such a paradise included legal enslavement of all those peoples who didn’t make practical, industrious use of their land. In other words: if the American government of the 19th century had been run along Utopian lines?

    The President of the United States who established Yellowstone National Park for aesthetic reasons would have literally wound up in chains!

    Update: more detailed trailers (seen while waiting for a matinee of KUNG FU PANDA 3) have shown that the premise behind the team up of these mismatched buddies involves a mysterious epidemic of…devolution!!!
