Karly Morgan- Disney’s Zootopia Hits on Key Issues

Disney has a history of sneaking adult themes into children’s movies. (The sex scene in The Lion King comes to mind as an example). Disney’s latest release, Zootopia, alludes to issues of racial profiling by police. At one point, the rabbit/officer character even calls the fox/officer character, “articulate”, an edgy move by Disney that alludes to Joe Biden calling President Obama “articulate” during the presidential campaign when they were still pitted against one another. I haven’t seen the film yet, which actually just released today, but the buzz surrounding a film that has only been out for 12 hours is certainly intriguing. I’ll  be sure to update after I see the film myself this weekend!
