Neenah Graduate Pens Disney's 'Zootopia'
Philip Johnston, a 1990 Neenah graduate, is the screenwriter of the Walt Disney Animation Studios film "Zootopia" that racked up more than $73 million in its opening weekend. The film is set in a world of anthropomorphic animals, which means foxes, rabbits, lions and the like walk on their hind legs and speak like humans. Jason Bateman, Ginnifer Goodwin and Idris Elba are among the actors lending voices.
Johnston also co-wrote another Disney hit, "Wreck-It Ralph," in 2012. "Ralph" was applauded by critics, landed among the highest-grossing films of the year and was nominated for an Oscar. Reviews for "Zootopia" have been outstanding with a 99 score on Rotten Tomatoes. The Toronto Sun calls it "a slam-dunk candidate for best animated feature in next year’s Oscars."
