In the Oscar-winning family flick Zootropolis (Zootopia in America), the plucky bunny rabbit Judy Hopps is accepted as the first police officer of her kind in the titular city. In Zootropolis, all the animals from lions to wildebeest live in harmony, but when some citizens begin to vanish, the balance of peace is tested.

Judy (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) encounters the sly and wisecracking fox, Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) and the two form an unlikely detective team. With guest appearances from Idris Elba, Jenny Slate, JK Simmons, Octavia Spencer and Alan Tudyk – Zootropolis is a fun, insightful ride through a perfectly animated and charming alternate universe.

Zootropolis – Sunday at 3.05pm on BBC One
