The Zootopia Meditations
Zootopia hit me in a way I didn’t expect it to when I went to the theatre. It has narrative oomph, it flows well, there are good hilarity bits, and it is supremely inventive. Above all else however, Zootopia possesses a delicious and strong philosophical core, one filled with amazing moments of transformation and possibility.
This is why Zootopia moves me greatly.
In a film about animals, Zootopia tells us much about what it means to be human. I want to explore and share all the profound goodness that lies within its running time.
