It’s March and I have bunnies on the brain. I bet you are thinking I mean the Easter bunny right? Well, you are partially right. The main reason I have bunnies on the brain is because Zootopia hits theaters today, March 4! I was invited to a complimentary media preview for the film, and you are in for a treat! Judy Hopps is the first bunny on the police force. See, bunnies are everywhere!
In honor of Officer Judy Hopps, we made some fun and delicious bunny cones! I’ll give you all the details about those in a bit, but first more about Zootopia!
Let me tell you what the story is about…
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery.
I think Zootopia is bound to be an instant Disney classic. My daughter and I loved the movie so much. She is already an animal lover so a story revolving entirely around animals was beyond amazing for her. I loved the movie too. There are so many fun animal puns. This will be a movie you want to watch again and again to catch all the fun hidden surprises. One of my favorites was when Fru Fru, an arctic shrew, was shopping and had bags from Mousey’s(Macy’s) and Targoat(Target). The movie was funny, clever, and it had a great message. Anyone can be anything. It’s hard being a bunny on a police force but Judy Hopps didn’t give up.
One word of warning, there were some suspenseful sequences and my daughter did get a little scared. Nothing too dramatic, she just wanted to snuggle in close. It lasted just a few minutes but be on the lookout for that if you have a sensitive child.
I just can not say enough about how great Zootopia and how much your entire family will love it.
Ok, so you’re excited to go and see Zootopia right? Now you need some ice cream! I’m going to share my bunny cone recipe with you and a quick video about how to make bunny ice cream cones.
