The little rabbit lady Judy Hopps (spoken by Josefine Preuß) has big dreams: she wants to move to the metropolis Zoomania and make a career as a policeman there. Despite all resistance, she passes the entrance examination and is allowed to start her job in the city. But besides her big colleagues, the little bunny doesn't have it easy, especially since she is ordered by the police chief to write only parking tickets. So she really didn't find her dream job. But then she gets the unique chance to prove what she is made of: together with a trickster, the charming and cunning fox Nick Wilde, she is supposed to solve the disappearance of some animals in Zoomania. In doing so, she uncovers a huge conspiracy that could soon put an end to the peaceful coexistence of the various animal species in Zoomania forever…
"Zoomania". is - apart from the incomprehensible change of the title in Germany from the quite meaningful "Zootopia" to the completely meaningless "Zoomania" - damn close to being a perfect animated film for the whole family. The staging is bursting with ingenuity, which makes multiple viewing almost imperative. The individual districts of the metropolis alone - from Sahara Square to the Amazon Quarter, Nageria to Tundratown - offer so many lovely details that you can't discover them all the first time. In addition, there are so many wonderfully bizarre things that make you shed tears in your eyes with laughter, which in turn makes you miss out on more little things. So get ready to travel to Zoomania several times at once.
The story told in this colourful environment is essentially a classic buddy cop comedy with some successful moments of tension. For very small viewers these may be a bit too gloomy and exciting, but small and big animation fans from 6 years on will be carried away by the search for the disappeared animals. Besides this somewhat conventional crime story, the makers around the directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore have also woven a very nice message about tolerance into the plot, which gives the whole thing a special touch. Lovable characters, wonderful allusions to film classics and the funniest sloths in film history also make animation fun stand out from the crowd.
I can hardly remember any other animated film in recent years where I laughed so much as I did in "Zoomania". There were perhaps more dramaturgically complex works, perhaps more imaginative. But when it comes to gag density, this animal family thriller undoubtedly plays in the first league. Moreover, Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde are a great duo to watch in their investigations. The film offers its audience two levels: one with cute characters and very obvious gags for the children and a slightly deeper level with more subtle adult gags for adults. So the whole thing works perfectly as entertaining, funny and exciting entertainment for the whole family. But there is a very clear one: Absolutely worth seeing!!!
