There is a time and a place for everything. I am the first person to speak up if I think political topics are being discussed through an inappropriate medium. Certain subjects are too much for kids to process at a young, immature age. Zootopia deals with bullying and prejudice, two issues relevant to to this day and age. Brava to the cast and crew because the subject matter is palatable for kids and poignant for adults. The concept will keep kids’ attention while the story plants questions and leaves a lasting impression. Why can’t bunnies be cops? Why can’t foxes be trusted? Do all predators have to be isolated because they are carnivorous by nature? Prey and predators have been living together peacefully in the city of Zootopia for decades, but cases of predators reverting back to wild behavior create panic and tension. The citizens start looking for the worst in each other rather than considering that evil intentions are at play. This movie had me hooked from start to finish. I highly recommend it both as entertainment and a teaching opportunity.
