5 Reasons Why Zootopia Is The Best Recent Disney Animated Movie


I know most people would point to Frozen (or Tangled if you’re one of the cool kids, since Tangled is better than Frozen) as the movie that jump started Disney’s most recent animation Renaissance, and that’s fine. I won’t disagree with you on that. But, when it comes to Disney’s best animated movie in the past 15 years or so, I’m going to have to go with zootopia100%.

Because unlike musicals such as encantoor moanaor Frozenwhich have excellent soundtracks to sing-along to, zootopia is more in the Big Hero 6/Raya and the Last Dragon/Wreck-It-Ralph category in that they mostly have to stand on their stories alone. That said, unlike those aforementioned non-musical animated films, zootopia stands the tallest out of all of Disney’s animated outputs, both musical and non-musical alike, and I have five reasons why.
