I didn't know this was something that existed. I knew about Nick and Judy fanfic and artwork, but putting a phrase to it is new to me. Thanks.

You should thank Ideathy, she's the one who introduced me to the world of shipping.

I agree that Zootopia is up and down, but I'd rate a number of these a bit higher than you.  Generally, we are in agreement.

I've added Zootopia to my Netflix streaming queue. I look forward to going back and reading this analysis after watching it.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Today, I'm listening to Mousterpiece Cinema's review of Zootopia, and concerning racism one person makes a good point-- that this is more Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? instead of In the Heat of the Night.  That the main point is that everyone finds that they are unintentionally falling into racism, even when they are aware of the racially-charged society and trying to avoid that.  This isn't, so much, an expose of racism in a society.

The Elite Eleven: Bonus Content - Zootopia

Listened to a podcast where they talked to the writers and directors of Zootopia. They said the press conference was the hardest scene because they didn't want Judy's responses to be because she was nervous. They wanted her theory of predators going savage to come from seeds of racism instilled by her parents fear of foxes and her past incident with Gideon Grey. Gideon was a late addition to the film when they realized they needed a reason for her to have an instinctual fear of predators.

While I hear what they're saying, I don't think that comes across in the scene because Judy's answers directly follow her getting advice from Nick on how to handle the crowd because she's nervous. Those answers are then twisted into fear politics by the reporters. I never connected her response as an honest moment of racism stemming from Gideon or her parents.



p.s. I'm no longer planning to do a month on Finding Dory at this time. I'd like to let the film sit for a bit before I return to it. I'll start my next project in Jan and am debating doing Prep & Landing for Christmas.

Well it has taken a long while to catch up on this thread, but I am glad I finally have. I will say your second favourite chapter in Zootopia was one of my least favourite. I remember seeing the trailers and groaning at the typical “Isn’t the DMV slow” joke, yawn. I also find it interesting that the much hailed Inside Out ended up the lowest scoring of the 6 films.

There seems to be backlash with the DMV scene, which is what got many interested in the film in the first place.

I will always struggle with Inside Out, but having gone through this Marathon I can now really enjoy that excellent middle.
