The 89th Academy Awards are nearly upon us and Disney this year has earned itself 9 nominations once again!

We saw the film a few times during its theatrical run and absolutely fell in love with the clever, colorful world. Now that the film is available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital we can revisit that world as...

ZOOTOPIA second highest grossing Disney animated feature only behind FROZEN, more than $1B worldwide

We didn’t even realize that ZOOTOPIA was still in theaters (considering it’s home release was announced early last month) but alas news comes today from Disney that the fantastic animal adventure has just crossed the $1 billion dollar mark as of yesterday. That’s enough to make it Disney’s second billion-dollar release of 2016 and its 11th of all time. Worldwide, it’s the #1 animated film of the year and just the...

It feels like only yesterday that we fell in love with  Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) and scam-artist fox Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) in the unexpectedly huge hit ZOOTOPIA and now the wait is not much longer until the lovable crew can come home on Blu-ray, 3D, DVD, and Digital! Disney didn’t take this one lightly, the bonus features here match the scope of the film’s success offering tons to deve into including roundtables,...

REVIEW: ‘ZOOTOPIA’ is exactly the film we need right now, poignant and fun

On so many levels, ZOOTOPIA is a hit. It isn’t often that you find a picture (much less an animated one) that’s entertaining and engaging but then to layer on a meaningful punch and heart, that makes it all the more rare and yet that’s exactly what Disney Animation has created. From the shut-up-and-take-my-money adorable characters to the well-formed plot, to the smart humor and the cheeky character interactions,...
