Movie Playlist Part 2 For Your Child’s Summer Vacation

As part of our Movie series, where we create a movie playlist a week for your child’s weekly dose of entertainment! Since summer vacations are the best time to keep your kids engaged with good movies, that can also teach them a life lesson or two; here are three more movies you can screen for your little ones...   

 

Zootopia

This is a movie that is set in a world where animals have moved well beyond preys and predators and live in harmony in fact they are also fully clothed. The story revolves around a chirpy Bunny Judy Hopps whose sole goal in life is to be a Cop which is unrealistic because in Zootropolis usually bunnies aren't considered Police material. Judy  suddenly stumbles on a case to why 14 mammals  were suddenly missing after attacking other animals. To get to the bottom of it she reluctantly needs to work with a sly Fox Nick who is a cheat and hustler but has contacts that will help her solve her case.

What kids can learn from it:

The movie can be bit rough and violent for kids below 4years. Apart from that kids can learn about ambition and striving towards it from Judy. Also about moving away from stereotypes like being dumb because you're a bunny, how this can be interpreted in human life is something that can be discussed with kids. Overall a good light movie to watch.
