Zootopia is an animated movie with unique characters, a clear message of perseverance, and plenty of humor. It zooms in on Judy Hopps, a young rabbit who becomes the first rabbit police officer in the big city of Zootopia. However, instead of becoming a great cop who solves mysteries, she spends all day writing parking tickets.

She then meets Nick Wilde, a fox who grew up on the streets and became her partner in solving a case in Zootopia. They have many differences, but they soon learn to appreciate one another’s abilities and work together to uncover the truth.

To find out more about what will happen to Nick and Judy at the end, read this collection from beginning to end!

3. “I thought this city would be a perfect place where everyone got along, and anyone could be anything. Turns out, life’s a little bit more complicated than a slogan on a bumper sticker. Real life is messy. We all have limitations. We all make mistakes. Which means, hey, glass half full, we all have a lot in common. And the more we try to understand one another, the more exceptional each of us will be. But we have to try. So no matter what kind of person you are, I implore you to try. Try to make the world a better place. Look inside yourself and recognize that change starts with you.” – Judy Hoops

Please, give me back the Zootopia I love.” – Gazelle
