Zootopia- Oscar Winner For Best Animated Film

zootopia animation

Zootopia is a 2016 American 3D computer-animated buddy comedy-adventure film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. No doubt that this film won hearts all across the globe and got a huge fan base just by its animation and storyline.

Disney’s most recent work on animating fur was for the titular character of the 2008 film Bolt, but the software they had used at the time was not ready for creating the realistic fur of the animals of Zootopia. Therefore, the studio’s IT engineers developed the fur-controlling software iGroom, which gave character designers precise control over the brushing, shaping and shading of fur and made it possible to create a variety of eccentric character styles for each animal.

The software was also able to control an unseen “imaginary” under layer that gave fur a degree of plushness not seen before. This feature was used to create characters like Officer Clawhauser, who has a big head that is entirely made of spotted fur. Characters with noteworthy numbers of strands of hair or fur included both of the two lead characters, Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, who each had around 2.5 million hairs; a giraffe with nine million strands of fur; a gerbil with 480,000 strands; and a rodent with more strands of hair than the 400,000 that were on Elsa’s head in Frozen.

The animators of this film made it a point to make the characters with diversity and include versatile characteristics to them. In addition to that, the improvisation in animation and an extraordinary storyline got the film an academy award. The film has been translated into many regional languages leading to an overall appreciation of the entire film.

In a city of anthropomorphic animals, a rookie bunny cop and a cynical con artist fox must work together to uncover a conspiracy. Computer animation evolves at an alarming rate. One year, a movie like Frozen or Big Hero 6 looks like the peak of what’s possible. Then, only a year later, the next thing goes way beyond that. In this case, the next thing is Zootopia, and in this movie a single giraffe has more individual hairs on it—nine million—than every single character in either Frozen, Big Hero 6, or Wreck-It Ralph.

Zootopia has 64 different species of animals, which break down into about 800,000 different character models. Again, we need to understand that it took immense amount of tedious and serious effort to create these characters in the first place and then came the workout of shot sequences that made this film such a huge hit to the extent that it won an academy award.
