What’s it about?

Zootopia is a place where all animals live together in peace. Judy Hopps is a rabbit who wants to become a police officer and move to Zootopia. Her friends and family try to talk her out of it but Judy wants to follow her dreams. Judy’s partner is a sly fox named Nick and together they have to find out why a lot of animals are going missing from Zootopia.

What to look out for

There are some violent scenes in this movie such as:

  • In the jungle outside of Zootopia, many animals chase other animals and kill them for their food.
  • A jaguar chases Nick and Judy in the jungle and tries to attack them.
  • Nick is seen as a young cub being bullied and beaten. The bullies put a muzzle on him.

There are also some scenes, which could frighten younger kids such as:

  • A crime boss called Mr Big kidnaps Nick and Judy and takes them to a dark and frightening location. He threatens to throw them into an icy lake.
  • Nick and Judy discover a building where savage animals are being locked up. Some of these animals jump suddenly out of the shadows.
  • Nick pretends to be savage and makes out he is going to attack Judy to force some criminals to tell them their plans.

Moral of the Story

The main messages from this movie are to follow your dreams, to not judge other people based on how they look and the importance of teamwork.
