  1. Zootopia is certainly a flawed film. And yes, a lot of the nits you’re picking make sense. And yes, there’s a lot of stuff that raises questions: The residential area with only small creatures – does it have any sort of police force? One would think that it should.
    And yes, it seems lately a trend in Disney’s more recent movies that their heroines work to earn what they have as opposed to just wishing. It’s a pretty good trend, to be honest. So yes, while Bogo’s line is a cute nod to the usual Disney musical, it’s basically ignoring the hard work Judy did to get to her position.
    I’ll also agree that the movie is pretty unlikely to make people inclined to be racist rethink their racism, and pretty much preaches to the choir. Most of the audience will probably agree that racism sucks.

    Anyway, it’s been a while since I’ve seen the movie. But all in all, I’d say it’s a good, but flawed movie.
