Zootopia is so much more than a light-hearted children’s film. Dealing with complex issues such as racism and discrimination, Zootopia deals with these problems through the perspective of animals living in urban Zootopia. The plot centers on Judy Hopps, the first bunny to ever become a police officer, and Nick Wilde, a seemingly shady fox who isn’t truly that bad.
Zootopia currently faces extreme segregation between predators and prey. The true plot begins when predators begin to go 'savage' and revert back to their prey-eating tendencies. The prey, scared of their uncivil counterparts, start to transition power from the predators (who have been suppressing the prey for years) to the prey, who are much more equipped for leadership. It's a classic 'little guy fights the man' kind of story ... or is it?
The main point of Zootopia is to reveal how discrimination can still happen, even when society deems this discrimination 'for the greater good.' With a few unexpected plot twists, Zootopia ends on a note reminding society to be careful for judging a person (or animal) based on stereotypes alone. This movie received critical acclaim, and is a must-watch for animated movie-lovers everywhere.
