It really just speaks to xenophobia, racism, and sexism, but they use animals instead of people.
It touches on overcoming adversity, doubters, hometown blues.. It really is a well put together movie that touches on a lot of societal points that people from all walks of life can relate too.
In the movie, while there is acceptance among all animals, certain animals are thought to be a better fit for certain jobs (kind of like how certain races are boxed into certain professions). The larger, more powerful animals like rhinos and elephants are on the police force, and the main character is a tiny little bunny (which is clearly a young white woman from flyover states) wants to be a cop.. So it attacks the "overcome adversity" angel
But on the flip, she's partnered w/ a fox conman... Regular food chain permits the fox to eat the bunny, which makes them an unlikely combo... but in the civilized world of Zootopia, they can be friends. However, she carries a fox spray given to her parents who have a deep fear of foxes.
It runs a very close line to the relationship between black and white people b/c older white folks tend to have a fear of black people, which is passed down in a subtle way to their "liberal" kids.
I probably butchered the explanation so don't let me stop you from watching it. Just give it a look, my g. Really good story.Edited by handullz - 4/23/17 at 11:00am
