Let me just say, it was a brilliant idea from Disney to create this collection of shorts based off of the hit film, Zootopia (2016). With so much to explore in this fictional world and with so many lovable, interesting characters, Zootopia+ is an absolutely adorable series of shorts to sit back and relax with. I had a far better time than I could’ve imagined and was surprised by how thoughtful and creative each story was. If you were a fan of Baymax! (2022) which came out earlier this year, then I can guarantee you’ll love this one just as much.

Watching this series will take you no time at all given each short in Zootopia+ is really only about 6-7 minutes long (there’s a long sequence of credits at the end which take up like 5 minutes). But despite this short time frame, the creators manage to pack a delightfully adventurous and funny tale into each episode. I love how unique and vibrant each story is and how they perfectly highlight the star of the show. It was especially fun seeing all the callbacks to the original film which I personally thought was a great creative decision and marketing decision (I mean, who doesn’t want to rewatch Zootopia after these shorts?!). While you can totally enjoy this series without having seen Zootopia, I do think you’ll have a much better time if you watch it first since you’ll miss out on all the cool references.

I genuinely had a blast with each episode and if I had to pick one, my favourite would definitely be the fourth entry titled “The Godfather of the Bride”. I won’t give away any spoilers here since I want you to enjoy it yourself, so I’ll just say that that episode is so full of heart and sweet sentiment, but it’s also incredibly hilarious. I love the comical take on each episode, and couldn’t help but smile as I ran through the whole series. The appeal is definitely being able to explore side characters we didn’t get to see much of in the actual film, but were likable and interesting enough that we would want to learn more about them.

If you’re looking for something short but also bright and cheerful to enjoy, let me just steer your attention towards Zootopia+. It’s so easy to watch and I really think this is one you can enjoy on your own or with your family and friends. There’s so much potential here and I’m hoping Disney will expand upon this universe some more to give us more episodes full of fun and excitement. Although this is just a collection of shorts, I’m going to give Zootopia+ an 8.5/10. Major props to all the creators behind this show for making Zootopia+ so enjoyable to watch. Can’t wait to see more!
