An Arctic fox works in the mailroom of a package delivery service, but wants to be doing the deliveries.
The vast majority of my favorite animated movies growing up as a kid were all very heavily animal orientated. The Lion King, Robin Hood (the Disney version with the fox), The Fox and the Hound, An American Tale, The Secret of Nimh, and Once Upon a Forest to name but a very few. So when I heard there was a newly minted kids animated animal movie out there I had to see it. Arctic Justice is a wonderfully animated, entertaining tale.
Swifty the fox discovers a devious plan by Otto Von Walrus to drill beneath the Arctic surface to unleash enough gas to melt all the ice. With help from his friends - an introverted polar bear, a scatterbrained albatross, a crafty fox and two paranoid otters - Swifty and the gang spring into action to foil Otto's plot and save the day.
Arctic Justice had a little bit of a Zootopia feel to it in that the animators have not only created a vast world populated by different types of characters and creatures, but the story is layered as well.
All animated films have to have a moral to their story and Arctic Justice’s message that each and every single person has something unique to offer. A message needed more now than ever.
Cute, charming, with animation that can stand up to the big, Hollywood players, Arctic Justice is an animated film with a message needed more now than ever.
