Here’s a curious thing: A fun, funny, action-packed animated family film that just by happenstance strikes at the very core of the ugliness behind the presidential campaign of a certain, stubby-fingered, orange-American. Couldn’t have been by design, not with production schedules for CG animation being what they are, but there it is: ZOOTOPIA — anthropomorphized animals against Trumpism. Couldn’t have come at a better time.
