  • "Predators.

  • They may be strong, and loud, but prey outnumber predators 10 to 1.

  • Think of it: 90% of the population united against a common enemy.

  • We'll be unstoppable."

  • Zootopia, the colorful animated film produced by Walt Disney Pictures, has been able to

  • draw an audience of all ages with its uplifting call for us all to avoid discrimination based

  • on stereotypes.

  • Although initially aimed at children, Zootopia has also reached adults through the skillful

  • integration of imagery and messages that go beyond the boundaries of a traditional Disney

  • movie.

  • In this case, the film introduces a clear moral to the storyline: prejudice by the state

  • or society is harmful to everyone.

  • Zootopia tells the story of a community of civilized animals free from their historical

  • predator-versus-prey tendencies.

  • Although equality of predator and prey seems to be widely recognized, it is clear that

  • it is still an ideal and has not been fully internalized by all the inhabitants of Zootopia.

  • "I want you to remember this moment the next time you think you will ever be anything more

  • than just a stupid, carrot-farmin', dumb bunny."

  • From a young age, the main characters Judy and Nick were criticized for their dreams

  • of defying their respective traditional career paths.

  • In addition, Judy faces more subtle discrimination because of her gender, and Nick with nuanced

  • economic class discrimination.

  • While Judy succeeds in overcoming these barriers, Nick is unable to.

  • "Hey, hey.

  • No one tells me what I can or can't be, especially not some jerk who never had the guts to try

  • to be anything more than a popsicle hustler."

  • "Alright look, everyone comes to Zootopia thinking they can be anything they want.

  • Well, you can't.

  • You can only be what you are.

  • Sly fox, dumb bunny."

  • The unlikely pair soon discovers that their mayor has been hiding a dark secret: that

  • predators are turning savage.

  • In an alleged effort to protect the public, the mayor locks up the enraged animals without

  • due process, thereby violating their fundamental rights.

  • This sort of violation of the rule of law by government authorities, allegedly in the

  • name of public safety, is not unlike what President Duterte has done in the Philippines,

  • where the state now routinely violates human rights and assassinates anyone who it claims

  • is involved in the drug trade.

  • Initially, Judy believes that the animals' DNA is the reason they turn savage.

  • "Why is this happening?"

  • "We still don't know.

  • But...uh, it may have something to do with biology."

  • "What do you mean by that?"

  • "A biological component, you know, something in their DNA."

  • "In their DNA?

  • Can you elaborate on that, please?"

  • "Yes.

  • What I mean is: thousands of years ago, um, predators survived through their aggressive

  • hunting instincts.

  • For whatever reason, they seem to be reverting back to their primitive savage ways."

  • As peaceful demonstrations take hold of the city, Judy begins to doubt her views and learns

  • the truth.

  • The new mayor of Zootopia, and animal of prey, is trying to scapegoat and systematically

  • incarcerate all predatory animals.

  • "I know you'll never forgive me, and I don't blame you.

  • I wouldn't forgive me either.

  • I was ignorant, and irresponsible, and small-minded.

  • But predators shouldn't suffer because of my mistakes.

  • I have to fix this."

  • "Come here.

  • Okay, oh you bunnies.

  • You're so emotional."

  • During the movie, the relationship of Judy and Nick mirrors some of the discoveries and

  • revelations that take place in Zootopia as a whole.

  • Over time, Nick is able to change Judy's preconceived view of his species, and in turn Judy helps

  • him see that his ambitions are valid and attainable when viewed apart from stereotypes based in discrimination.

  • "Look inside yourself, and recognize that change starts with you.

  • It starts with me.

  • It starts with all of us."
