Morning Commute Thoughts
  • Me: In the concept art, Eugene is depicted with a bow several times. I wonder how that conversation went...
  • Tangled crew: How does he get up the tower the first time?
  • Byron Howard: What if he uses arrows as leverage to climb?
  • Tangled crew: Where does he get the arrows?
  • Byron Howard: He's an archer! (Heehee, I love Robin Hood!) Okay, artists! Sketch out some concepts!
  • Tangled crew: But, I mean, he really shouldn't be an archer...
  • Byron Howard: But, Robin Hood! I-I mean, how else would he get up the tower?
  • Tangled crew: Still arrows, but what if he picks up the crossbow bolts being shot at him as he escapes with the crown? I mean, a longbow is kind of bulky for a thief to carry around. And he's a cat burglar, not a highwayman.
  • Byron Howard: But... Robin Hood... *sigh* Fiiiiiiiiine.
  • Byron Howard: *grumbles* I'll just have to make a different movie with Robin Hood as the main character.
  • Later...:
  • Byron Howard: We should make Nick an archer!
  • Zootopia crew: Byron, no.
Oscar Nominated Features 2017: Zootopia

I’m going to start off by saying that if this wins, I will not be disappointed at all. I already mentioned that I thought Moana should win, but Zootopia is a fantastic movie. 

It’s the most impressive bit of world-building I have seen in years, and maybe ever seen. And with talks of a sequel, I’m getting really excited to see more of the world that we only heard about.

Zootopia is a perfect example of how well Disney can hold a multi-generational audience captive. It’s a fine example of them not taking themselves too seriously, but taking their craft seriously. It’s the kind of movie that you go expecting to have fun and leave having had more fun than you could have imagined. 

More than that, it’s a movie that needed to be made. There’s a lot of bad feeling in the world, especially now while we’re so divided politically and socially. It was so important to see how even the most well-meant warning can be misconstrued and dissolve into dangerously charged segregation. But there is a danger that the movie accidentally creates, and it is inherent in the way it sends its message.

Byron Howard is the best.  :D  After Elon Musk posted about seeing a plush Flash on the desk of his local DMV, Byron did the puntastic honours of bringing Elon and his space program into Zootopia! 

(Though… with all of Elon’s Boring now, I wonder if he’s also got a different animal secret identity… ;)  I mean, he is pretty shrew-ed… :P :D )
