Zootopia turned out to be really awesome. I was expecting it to be something like Big Hero 6, which was technically spot-on in so many ways and yet never became a compelling story.

I don't think this is a huge spoiler, but with this one, the protagonists actually have real growth and real feelings of loss - and even though the movie ends with a lot of hope, it's more realistic, more nuanced. These are characters 'way more sympathetic than Disney's had for a while now, so I came away loving the movie, and I think I would have if they were cartoon humans.

Another not-really-a-spoiler is that the big character growth is on the main two protagonists, with little bits of really good characterization for some of the other characters, so it was much easier to care about those two.

Since I tend to get weepy during movies, I was expecting some part of this one would make me tear up. There's a chunk where the police chief is talking to the main character and says "the world has always been broken. That's why we need good cops." The idea that being a policeman could be a step towards tikkun olam is something that could have dropped out of my Grampa's mouth pretty much verbatum.
