Zootopia: An analysis
Transcript of Zootopia: An analysis
Early on, Judy notices something strange that, not only do people stereotype her, but others around her as well. In this short clip, we see the stereotype that Judy isn't capable of becoming what she wants because of what she is.
From this first clip, using the conflict theory, we can see that Finnegan, the fox, uses discrimination and threats to take control and have power over Judy; making her the minority in the situation.
Inequality of Race and Ethnicity
In this movie, the inequality of race, or in this case species of animal, is constantly in the spotlight.
You start to observe how the main character faces inequality throughout her childhood, and throughout the rest of the film.
Zootopia is about a bunny, Judy Hopps, who struggles to fit into the police force. She quickly discovers that Zootopia is not quite what she imagined. Ironically, she partners up with a fox, Nick Wild, who stubbornly creates conflict between the two of them.
Zootopia: An Analysis
-Focuses on power, control, and the competition for resources

What is Conflict Theory?
Unfortunately, racial discrimination will always exist, and even though there is the melting pot and tossed salad theory, there will always be differences between the majority and minority.
In this next scene, the climax starts to develop when there is an outbreak of predators starting to resort back to their "biological aggressive behavior". Social tension occurs when the animals in Zootopia start to see the predators becoming dangerous and start to create fear toward
Coming to Zootopia
In this clip, we see, upon Judy's arrival, all of the species of animals are blended, which is an example of the "Tossed Salad" theory.
On the outside it may look like everyone has accepted each other, yet there will always be prejudice and discrimination in the shadows. In this next clip, we will see the stereotype and prejudice against Nick the fox.
After Judy mistakenly makes this accusation, the prey start to stereotype every predator they see, causing frustration for innocent predators.
Since this miscommunication was broadcast through the media, segregation and discrimination became universal throughout Zootopia and causes major conflict within the society.
In this next scene, Nick opens up about his past. Like in the movie "Crash" where the two boys who faced stereotypes their whole life just didn't care about trying to fit into the society anymore, both Nick and the two boys are very similar.
They both agree with the concept of, "there's no point in being different when everyone is going to look at you the same".
This clip gives us a glimpse on how stereotyping in childhood can effect your view on society.
Looking at this movie through the Conflict Perspective helps us to really understand the way society deals with prejudice and discrimination.
This movie is a great example to help everyone realize the stereotypes, discrimination, and labels that we give to those around us.
Not everyone is the same, and we can't judge them based on who the are or where they came from.
