Zootopia is a movie put out by Disney that's all about animals living in a huge city. Well, it's a bit more then that, but this thread is for those who have seen the movie who want to talk about it.Ummmmmm. Care to elaborate for the uninitiated? Just a talk about thread?
I too was rather impressed with it. I saw it last night, and I had to admit, it was better then I had expected. Granted, this will give rise to a new generation of furries, but hey, such is life.I watched this movie a couple weeks ago (as it was released here earlier than US) and I absolutely loved it, I think it is my favorite animated movie from Disney, a title that was held by Big Hero 6, I especially love the fact that it is much more than the typical cutesy film and it has a very deep message.
I like how Disney went out of its confort zone to address some very deep themes like racism, sexism, prejudice, friendhip and to persevere despite everyone telling you you should abandon your dreams because they are impossible to achieve.
And the theme is all the more relevant with the current state politics are on this day and age.
You know what amazed me about her? The attention to detail. You can almost count each hair on her head.Oh hey, I saw this movie just today! Bunny Cop ftw! ^^
Though, I'm curious how exactly one is supposed to fight off heartless using blueberry guns.
It's true. I'll be honest, the cg was half the reason I saw the movie. And it didn't disappoint.The attention to detail throughout the movie is stunning, really. ^^
I thought the city itself was particularly epic, what with all the different climate-controlled districts. Added a certain adventure aspect we wouldn't have had with a human-built city.
Other way around? You mean the blueberry guns are fighting off heartless using you?
...*rereads own post*... Hold on a sec. Let me try rephrasing my sentence a bit...
"Though, I'm curious how exactly one is supposed to use blueberry guns to effectively fight off heartless."
Well, it is a kid's movie, and I imagine that the lore of the world kinda took a back seat during the process of the movie being made. That said, I suppose it would have been nice to see what they chowed down on.You mean like tofu burgers or vegan steaks? And of course they can 'co-exist', all they have to do is give the predators a meal worth their time given the hunger requires chasing and fear.
What a nifty idea. Perhaps it's time for some good 'ol crossover fanfiction...Huh. I thought there would be more Zootopia discussion here, considering how both TFH and Zootopia deal with how predators and prey can/can't coexist peacefully.
I like to imagine that TFH's story could be a sort of prequel to Zootopia. What if Foenum finds a way for the predators to not have to eat our ungulates, thus paving the way for the "evolution" that brings about the setting of Zootopia?
Only thing that bugged me about it was the start seemed a tad rushed with the transition into cophood...
It was a bit quick, but given how much ground the story had to cover, I'd guess they felt it was necessary so they could get to the main meat of the plot.I agree that the intro was a little rushed...
To do the spoiler thing, do this:And although I don't know how to use that spoiler thing...
I can say that there were no monkeys, apes, pandas, birds, snakes or reptiles...unless they were way in the background and I couldn't spot them outright.
The sapient population did indeed consist entirely of mammals, as far as I could see. If other animals, such as chicken or fish, remained non-sapient, then perhaps it's safe to assume they're fair game for the predators.[...]they did not really explain what the "predators" ate now that they don't hunt prey
Well, that might be because they figured the audience would connect better with mammals rather then fish and/or reptiles. I mean, near as I can tell, mostThe sapient population did indeed consist entirely of mammals, as far as I could see. If other animals, such as chicken or fish, remained non-sapient, then perhaps it's safe to assume they're fair game for the predators.
...Then again, we very clearly see a fox eating blueberries late in the movie, so I dunno. ¯\__/¯
It's a great film, an't it? Good stuff. And I thought the moral of the story hit home pretty freaking well too.I just got out from seeing this movie and avoided this topic like the plegue, but man was this just a great film, Disney did such a good job, the characters were all enjoyable, the settings are amazing, the story was nice and the morals we're the icing on the cake. Would recommend 9/10
yeah my favorite parts of the movie was when judy was telling the multiplying joke, the bootleg movies and any time clawhouser was on screen, also when bellwether said fear always wins I just thought of trump.
I watched the movie again, and I saw at least one place where one could buy fish. So it looks like fish stayed non-sapient and are a food source for predators.If other animals, such as chicken or fish, remained non-sapient, then perhaps it's safe to assume they're fair game for the predators.
Maybe they wanted to keep to a theme? Kind of like how TFH has hooved animals only, they could have decided to just have mammals in this world.Still doesn't explain why there weren't any non-mammals at least somewhere.
There's plenty of movies about the struggle of having a dream and achieving it. The movie almost always ends once they achieve their goal. This movie changes that up a bit by implying that just because you reach your goal, you're not guaranteed to be happy with how it plays out afterwards, and you may have to keep working. It's a theme that's mirrored in the lyrics of the Shakira song.Only thing that bugged me about it was the start seemed a tad rushed with the transition into cophood.

I know right? guess I'm not the only one that kept thinking of it during the movieI wonder if people will compare TFH to Zootopia.
