    I wonder if the movie will get Oscar consideration? It was released so early in the year that I think it will be long forgotten which would be unfortunate, as I think it is good enough to warrant consideration for Best Picture or Screenplay. Not that I would actually expect it to win for Best Picture or anything, but it wouldn't be out of place as a Nominee.

    When you adjust for inflation Lion King is still on top!

    Hmm... Good point. On the one hand, The Lego Movie was released early in it's year, and was passed over for a nomination. On the other hand, last year, Pixar had Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur. The more recent one was the one that didn't get the Oscar nod.

    I think it depends on how well, commercially and critically, Moana does.

    So, the movie is out out on Blu-ray and digital today! Something I've been wondering, though. Anyone else ever notice that Disney always does home video releases for animation on Tuesdays?

    I think Tuesday is a standard for home entertainment across the board.

    Tuesday is the standard release date for most home media (books, DVDs etc), Disney or otherwise.

    I really liked. It was a solid movie but man was it predictable. I would definitely rank it ahead of frozen.

    In what way do you think it was predictable?

    Well, I called who the villain was going to be months before the film's release. I'd imagine others sussed it out quickly as well.

    yup thats it. It was very early after she got to zootopia I turned to my wife and said who the villain was. It also has been Disneys goto lately so you could see it coming a mile away.

    Fair point. That's the only complaint I have about Zootopia, though

    And yet Disney still has very little in the parks for it.
    Once upon a time, new movies had shows and parades at DHS. Hunchback had a great show, and I remember the Aladdin & Hercules parades (unfortunately drawing a blank on the Mulan parade). Disney was in no way ready to promote Frozen, which led to the insane lines for the M&G. At least you can meet Moana; Nick & Judy are only found in parades, right?

    Cant wait forbthem to gut Living with the Land to shoehorn in Zootopia. :rolleyes:

    It was an ok movie. Thought Moana was ten times better.

    Other than majorly disagreeing with you about Living with the Land (I can't tell if that was sarcasm or not, never know with these boards), I do agree with you about Moana. I just didn't think Zootopia was the best Disney film of the year.

    Yes, it was sarcasm. Fiction based attractions have their place. Epcot is not the place.
