Zootopia 1 Recap
Zootopia is set in a world where animals whether they are predators or prey co-exist with each other. The story revolves around Judy Hopps, a rabbit who dreams of becoming a cop which she does with flying colors however her problems don’t end here. Judy is a country rabbit who has never been to the city and is often discriminated against for being a rabbit, as there has never been a rabbit cop before. Usually, the job is taken on by large and stronger herbivores like water buffalo or predators like lions. Judy despite all her hard work gets assigned as a meter maid, which although brings her grief, made her parents very happy since they didn’t want her to get hurt.
During her job, she meets a red fox and helps him without knowing he’s scamming her. Judy confronts Nick, the fox, but he brushes it off leaving her down in the dumps. She then gets involved in a case of a missing otter which leads her to get help from Nick and they investigate together, much to Nick’s dismay. The clues lead up to finding out that the missing animal cases and the recent frenzied predator cases are done by the same person and that the mayor’s assistant is the one pulling the strings. The duo put on a show fooling her into spilling the beans and she is arrested. The movie finishes off with Nick becoming a cop himself and Judy becoming a respected cop amongst her peers.
