  • Where are you getting information on the release date? As far as I know, there hasn't been any official announcements. – Yuuki May 11 '16 at 1:12
  • @Yuuki movies.disney.com/zootopia – LoveAndCoding May 11 '16 at 1:12
  • Okay then, sounds good. If this is the most upvoted suggestion and June 4 is the scheduled Movie Night date as well, this will likely be selected as the August Movie Night showing (basically what we did with Big Hero 6). – Yuuki May 11 '16 at 1:15

    This is a great movie but has some pretty explicit stuff in it toward the end. Just FYI. – GodEmperorDune May 10 '16 at 15:39
  • @GodEmperorDune is there any age restriction for Bridge Movie Night? I couldn't find any in Yuuki's presentation and, given that there's another R-rated movie among the suggestions (Mad Max), I thought that there was no problem about this – Kappei May 10 '16 at 23:12
  • @Kappei well the only person that doesn't fit R that attends movie nights is me and well, I'll go ahead and post it no matter the age ratings. (unless stack says that we shouldn't organize movie nights watching R rated movies) – Ave May 10 '16 at 23:22

    @Kappei AFAIK, there is not an age restriction per-se, I just wanted to make sure that the voters/potential viewers are aware of it. I personally don't have a problem with it and like I said, it's a fantastic movie with interesting themes. If anyone is concerned about the explicitness, I encourage them to check out the parent guide you linked in the post. – GodEmperorDune May 10 '16 at 23:25

    Basically, R ratings is why I ask people to post a parental guide. Not all R's are equal and what one person can stand in an R-rated movie, another person cannot. – Yuuki May 11 '16 at 1:09
  • I've watched this and it was quite disappointing. What a weak closure. – badp May 11 '16 at 1:15
  • @badp just watched and indeed a weak closure. – Ave May 11 '16 at 16:21

    Do yourself a favour and listen to the original BBC radio series. This is a pale tribute. – fredley May 14 '16 at 16:24
