Walt Disney Animation’s Zootopia surprised me with its use of allegory about race, and I thought the film handled the sensitive topic extraordinarily well. But what if all of that was stripped away, and the movie was a cop-centered crime thriller that just happened to feature animated characters? That’s what CineMash’s new re-edit imagines, and since the actual movie has a ton of procedural elements to it anyway, there’s a lot for them to work with here.
Side note: if you haven’t seen Zootopia, for whatever reason, please do yourself a favor and check it out. If you’ve seen it, avoid The Secret Life of Pets and watch this again.
