Zootopia is a buddy cop movie for kids about a rookie bunny officer, Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), who teams up with a con artist fox, Nick (Jason Bateman), to solve a missing persons case in a city of humanlike animals. Judy is an optimist; she sees everything through rose colored glasses and tries her best to be good at what she does. Zootopia isn’t your average animated film as it deals with real issues like prejudice and tolerance. Of course, it’s ultimately Judy’s story and she has many memorable moments throughout.

Here’s why Hopps is the tops in Zootopia. WARNING: this article contains spoilers!
