In the concept art, Eugene is depicted with a bow several times. I wonder how that conversation went...
How does he get up the tower the first time?
What if he uses arrows as leverage to climb?
Where does he get the arrows?
He's an archer! (Heehee, I love Robin Hood!) Okay, artists! Sketch out some concepts!
But, I mean, he really shouldn't be an archer...
But, Robin Hood! I-I mean, how else would he get up the tower?
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.
But... Robin Hood... *sigh* Fiiiiiiiiine.
*grumbles* I'll just have to make a different movie with Robin Hood as the main character.
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.
